ABOUT BREAK AT THE BEACH: Break at the Beach” an effort to help break emerging bands into the national music scene. “Break at the Beach” is a monthly program allowing new bands to submit their material to the Ultimate Jam Night team, be reviewed, and then potentially be selected to perform in a live “audition round” at Venice, California’s Venice Beach Bar Live located at the Venice Beach Boardwalk at 323 Ocean Front Walk. The winner of each monthly audition will be given an opening slot at Ultimate Jam Night at the Whisky A Go Go, with their performance broadcast worldwide via Zinna.TV.
Selected “audition round” bands will perform live before a panel of well-established touring artists, producers, and promoters. The winning band will be selected based on performance, presence, crowd appeal, and musicianship. There is no cost to participate, and winning bands will receive promotional, marketing, and industry contact support leading up to their live performance at Ultimate Jam Night.
“Ultimate Jam Night was created to bring the live music community together” said creator, Chuck Wright. “As we enter our third year of programming, we’re now expanding our reach to include the development of new artists – as they will always be the life-blood of the music industry.”
The selection of the Venice Beach Bar for the “audition round” wasn’t by accident. The historic landmark building once served as the stomping grounds of Jim Morrison of the Doors, whose fame grew at the Whisky A Go Go as an emerging band.
