About The Next Great American Band
The producers behind mega-hit phenomenon American Idol take the musical reality
genre to a whole new level with a mission to find undiscovered American bands
that are ready to rock the nation. The show will air in its regular time
period on Fridays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). From hair bands to hip-hop, classic
rockers to country crooners, The Next Great American Band scoured the country
seeking musical groups of all ages and styles, with hundreds of bands
auditioning for a backstage pass to stardom. From the auditions, judges will
narrow down the hopefuls to 10 semifinalist bands who will perform weekly in
front of a live studio audience. Viewers will vote for their favorite bands to
determine who stays in the competition. Each week, the bands will perform either
original music or covers of varied styles. The range of genres will test their
musical limits, and could also strike the wrong chord in their personal and
professional relationships. The season finale brings the ultimate battle of the
bands, with the last three groups competing to secure a contract with 19
Recordings and the title of "Next Great American Band."
Singer/songwriter John Rzeznik, legendary percussionist and performer Shelia E.
and Australian TV personality Ian “Dicko” Dickson will serve as judges while
Dominic Bowden hosts the series.
