The Banded.com Is A Web 2.0 Battle Of The Bands

TheBanded is an interesting site. If you are the type of person who is into the battle of bands thing/mobilizing your fans this site could be a great opportunity for your band to get an interesting break. I think the best way to explain what they do is for me to copy their “How It Works” page:
  • Fans and Artists create free online profiles
  • Artists post original songs to thebanded.com
  • Fans vote and lobby votes for favorite songs
  • Artist songs ranked according to Fan votes
  • Fans ranked according to their influence on thebanded.com (or how well they ‘lobby’)
  • Most influential fans get perks! Like discounts on merchandise and special opps to earn revenue
  • Each
    month, top 2 Artists make ‘The Banded 2′ And Then Get % of site’s money
    for life! (a check in the mail every month!) and % of the company in
    form of stock options

Pretty interesting idea, we will be keeping up with TheBanded and we would appreciate if you all keep us in the loop of any of your experiences with the site.
