2009 Summer Fair looking for bands

Here’s a chance to get some more exposure around here.

First up, a call to local rockers. Organizers of the 2007 Summer Fair, scheduled for June 7-17, are looking for local or regional bands that want to showcase their talents in a two-hour set at the “Miller Rocks Café” during the aforementioned Summer Fair. According to a Vicki Miller, special events marketing coordinator for the Mississippi Coast Coliseum, which hosts the fair: “We provide the covered staging, lights, PA system and a sound engineer. There is no additional compensation, but the selected bands will be featured on our giant marquee, on our Web site, and in the printed schedules.”

According to Miller, in order to be considered, bands must submit a demo tape, photos and/or link to their Web site for review. Bands will be scheduled on a first come, first serve basis, and submissions should be mailed to 2350 Beach Boulevard, Biloxi, MS 39531, attention: Vicki Miller.
