    More than 400 fans from around the country will pack the Cambridge
    Performing Arts Center May 12-13th for the explosive finale to the In
    the Groove: Battle of the Bands 2012, hosted by the Music Makers’
    Foundation. 16 finalists, representing some of the finest talent east
    of the Mississippi, will go head to head to win some incredible
    awards.

    Last Fall, 64 bands hailing from Maine to Florida competed in Boston,
    New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. for the chance to perform
    at the new Xibus Performance Hall, part of the new Cambridge
    Performing Arts Center. Now, the final 16 will go all out, vying for
    the judge’s vote, audience’s support, and the fantastic prizes,
    including:

       * $1000 gift certificate to Sam Ash Music
       * Featured set at the legendary Symphony Hall in Boston, MA, home
    to the Boston Pops, Boston Symphony Orchestra, and regularly cited as
    one of the best music halls in all the world (Spring 2013)
       * Management contract for 2012-13 US Tour opening for the Boston
    String Quartet. Dates to be determined, but including cities in DC,
    VT, IA, GA, TN, OH, FL, VA
       * Music publishing contract for one book with Groove Publishing.
    Book shall include up to eight original musical compositions by the
    winning band, and shall be available for commercial purchase in stores
    and in online marketplaces.

    The highly anticipated Battle begins at 3pm on Saturday, May 12 for
    the Under 18 set, and 5pm Sunday the 13th for the Over 18s. The
    Jessica Prouty Band - who’ve also won numerous Battles of the Bands
    and other competitions, had their songs played on Boston radio, and
    released three albums, the latest of which, My Way, came out this past
    June - will kick off the festivities and open the show.

    Tickets are now available online at www.botb2012.eventbrite.com.
