Who's Best Battle of the Bands with Andre Gardner

· The Social at Revel
· Friday, February 22, 2013
· 7pm - midnight

On Friday February 22 Atlantic City will be enveloped in the sound and spirit of classic rock.  The Who will play Boardwalk Hall and 102.9 WMGK-FM and Revel will host a series of activities before, during and after the concert that will satisfy the musical cravings of any classic rock music fan.  102.9 WMGK-FM afternoon drive host, Andre Gardner, will host a Who Concert pre-party and live broadcast inside The Social (located at Revel) from 2pm to 7pm.  As soon as he's done broadcasting, Gardner will preside over a huge Battle of the Bands event, dubbed the 'Who's Best Battle  Of The Bands', featuring four of the best classic rock cover bands in the tri-state area. 

The bands will compete to win $500 in prize money and a performance contract with Revel.  The winner of the Battle of the Bands will play an hour long encore set from 11pm to Midnight.  The encore set will coincide with the end of that evening's Who concert and will serve as 102.9 WMGK's official Who concert after party.  Concert attendees are welcomed to continue their rocking evening at The Social.

Three of the competing bands have been chosen.  Each of the bands are former WMGK House Band contest winners – Final Vinyl, The Dead Poets and Them Bones.  WMGK and Revel are looking for one more classic rock cover band to add to the bill.  Bands interested in performing can go to and submit a video of their band performing one song.  WMGK and Revel will select their favorite submission and invite that band to perform on February 22, 2012 at The Social.
