2020 Battle of the Bands Competition

SALOON STUDIOS LIVE is an 1860’s-style saloon concert venue, born out of a passion for westerns and live music. This stunning saloon is the heart of a 19th century-inspired western town, complete with period antiques and treasures. Hidden behind these many historical western artifacts is a state-of-the-art musical atmosphere with today’s top analog and digital components and equipment.

Saloon Studios Live has hosted over 100 events and thousands of concert-goers from around the nation. Our “Legends” and “Rising Stars” indoor and outdoor shows have been highlighted as a positive addition for the Town of West Jefferson’s tourism. 

The 2020 Music Season will kickoff and showcase a series of Battle of the Bands Competitions in the following categories: Rock-n-Roll, Country, Jazz/Blues, and Bluegrass/Americana. All bands will compete and be showcased on the new 52′ x 30′ Outdoor Stage.

Bands and solo acts from either of the four categories listed above, will be invited to first compete against one another on social media. Information and rules can be found on our website coming in January 2020. Winners of the internet competition will then be chosen to compete LIVE on our outdoor stage, in their chosen category.

PRIZES: Music-related equipment and gear, studio recording services, recognition on our website and social media, and an invitation to join the featured line-up for the 2020 Music on the Mountain Festival in August.

Some of the nation’s finest musical entertainers, celebrities, professors and founders are being selected to judge the competitions. All judges will be announced 1-month before the first competition on May 23rd.

Saloon Studios Live will host over 50 bands, with thousands of concert-goers in attendance, over the course of these competitions and the 2020 Music on the Mountain Festival.
