Here's the deal - my best friend from high school, Denver Bierman, has a big band called 'Denver and the Mile High Orchestra'. They are going to be on a new tv series premiering Friday, Oct. 19 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The show will air in its regular time period on Fridays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) after that.
From the auditions, the show's judges will narrow down the hopefuls to 10 semifinalist bands who will perform weekly in front of a live studio audience. The judges will have their say after each performance, but viewers will vote for their favorite bands to determine who stays in the competition. Voting begins immediately after each show, and the results will be announced at the beginning of the following episode.Each week, the bands will perform either original music or covers of varied styles. The range of genres will test their musical limits.
The season finale brings the ultimate battle of the bands, with the last three groups competing to secure a contract and the title of "Next Great American Band."
I just wanted to put the word out so that if he moves on you might put in a vote for him when the time comes.
