The winner of each concert will be determined by two, evenly weighted, categories:
Judges’ Score: A panel of judges will rate your performance according to a scorecard provided by State Theatre based on the input of local musicians and industry folk.
Audience Support: You will get two chances to stimulate the audience. Audience support will be judged by a digital decibel meter reading, projected live on the big screen.
*Note. The lineup will be determined based on ticket pre sales. The band with the most pre sale tickets will get first choice, then second most and so on.

State Battle of the Bands is open to Nebraska based bands. We require a $100 investment (registration fee) from each band. The entirety of your band registration fee goes directly to Box Awesome Entertainment for sound and lighting production at your primary concert. Also, the registration fee assures the venue that you will do you best to bring your fans, family and friends into the concert. I call it an investment because each band receives 30 complimentary tickets to their primary concert upon registration. The tickets have a face value of $5 (the cover charge for the concert). So, you actually get $150 worth of tickets. Plus, you can buy more pre sale tickets at a discounted rate of $3 per ticket.

To register, please contact Ben Churley at or send a message to the State Theatre MySpace. In your message please include a phone number and your availability (i.e. first weekend, second weekend, or both).

Thanks for your patience. Now, lets make this a big event for everyone. If it goes well, we will do more in the future.
