Recording studio bus coming to Philly for cover song competition
A mobile recording studio housed in a tour bus will be in Philadelphia Monday through Wednesday to give locals the opportunity to enter a nationwide cover song competition.
The contest, hosted by audio products manufacturer Polk, invites Philadelphians to at no cost record their own rendition of the Doobie Brothers’ 1972 classic “Listen to the Music” aboard the studio bus.
Each song will be automatically uploaded to the contest’s Facebook page and entered into the company’s “Listen to the Music” competition.
Ten finalists will be selected by Polk executives and members of Canadian pop rock cover band Walk Off the Earth.
From there, the winner will be crowned by popular vote.
The selected singer will be gifted with a collection of Polk audio products.
They will also in January open for Walk Off the Earth and Grammy Award-winning Philly-born R&B crooner John Legend during a private party in Las Vegas.
The bus will be making frequent stops throughout the city over the next three days.
Those interested in participating can also submit a YouTube video of themselves singing “Listen to the Music” through the Polk Bus website.
