Judging at the competition is based on:
· Musical ability- vocal/instrumental skill, fluidity, intonation
· Originality- quality original material or quality interpretation of covers
· Professionalism- how you portray yourself/band onstage
· Stage presence/style- confidence, dynamics, audience enthusiasm
· Extra Weight of 1 pt. given to ensembles with three or more instruments due to the difficulty of ensemble playing.
The panel of judges will vote on a scale from 1-10 in each of the categories. All scores will be added up and the sum will be the band’s final score, which will determine 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
