Last updated 3/16/2016 at 3:53pm

2016 March Madness competition has been selected 64 up and coming bands throughout New York State to compete in this friendly competition on starting Tuesday, March 8 and a number of familiar favorite bands such as Blind Owl Band, Dragnfly, Waydown Wailers and Annie in the Water that has North Country ties have been added to March Madness band contest...

Similar in concept to college basketball's March Madness, 64 bands (unranked) will compete through 6 rounds of voting, culminating in one statewide winner, giving a higher profile to bands that make it onto each consecutive round. This is NYS Music page third year at this series, having previously done the series based on geography (2014) and genre (2015). For 2016 we are focusing intently on the various up and coming bands that are making waves in their regions around the state and would gain a greater visibility through NYS Music's March Madness. You have a local/regional audience – this is a great time to get your name heard by the tens of thousands of readers who visit every month.

Voting in the 1st round begins at Noon, Tuesday, March 8 and end on Thursday, March 10 at midnight. The second round begins on Friday, March 11, and those who advance will be notified.

We encourage bands to do is contact their fans through Facebook, share the link off the NYS Music page, and be proactive and enthusiastic in bringing fans to vote for you to progress onto the next round. We will be sharing out March Madness series on all social media platforms and ask that you do the same.
