The Next Great American Band To Kick Off With Three Two-Hour Episodes

Next_band_judgeshostIn what could become the highest rated show to ever hit Friday night,
The Next Great American Band will premiere with three special two-hour
episodes.  The extended episodes will air on Friday, October 19,
Friday, October 26 and Friday, Novever 2 from 8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT.
Beginning November 9, the show will air in its regular time period on
Fridays from 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT.

The Next Great American Band is from the producers behind American Idol.  Instead of looking for a solo singer, the show’s mission is to find undiscovered groups.  Singer/songwriter John Rzeznik from The Goo Goo Dolls, legendary percussionist and performer Sheila E. who recorded “The Glamorous Life” and “A Love Bizarre,” and Australian TV personality Ian “Dicko” Dickson from Australian Idol will serve as judges.  Dominic Bowden from New Zealand Idol hosts the series. 

From the auditions, featured on the October 19 premiere, judges Rzeznik, Sheila E. and “Dicko” will narrow down the hopefuls to 12 semifinalist bands who will perform weekly in front of a live studio audience.  From hair bands to hip-hop and classic rockers to country crooners, every genre of music will be represented and each week the bands will perform the varied styles.  Then it will be up to the viewers to determine with their votes who will secure a contract with 19 Recordings and the title of Next Great American Band.

    PETER TEIMAN here,
    American Idol can be precarious at best.

    PETER TEIMAN here,
    The next great American band may be undiscovered in the next back-yard, because they do not have the right contacts.
