Eric Christenson |

You’ve got until April 30 to submit your band to Rockonsin, a statewide alternative music competition for seventh-to-12th grade students in garage bands of all musical genres. Each band must submit an online application and video of the band performing either one cover or original song. There is no registration fee. After the submission process, 12 bands from all over the state will be selected to perform at Summerfest in Milwaukee and will be competing for additional gigs the national Vans Warped Tour stop in Milwaukee and the 10th anniversary of the Waukesha Bluesfest. There are even more prizes and a chance for tons of ears to hear your songs, so head over to to learn more and fill out an application.
