89.7 Bay Bands

89.7 Bay Bands

A Big Success

89.7 Bay’s new campaign to promote upcoming talent is proving to be a huge success! Over a hundred local singers and groups have signed up and uploaded their songs to Bay Bands, with over a thousand 89.7 Bay listeners registering and voting for their favourite tracks. “Bay receives so many tracks sent from Maltese talent that it’s impossible to air it all,” said Bay’s station manager Simon Lumsden. “Bay Bands, gives singers and groups the ideal opportunity to have their music appreciated by the nation,” he added. “It also allows them to get a step up in the local music industry as, each month, the tracks with the most votes will be aired live on 89.7 Bay.” When asked why this project was undertaken, his answer was “There is so much talent out there, we felt it our duty to do more to promote it”. Any local artist or aspiring artist, can log on to Bay’s sub-site, Bay Bands, upload their tracks and the rest of us can vote. Every month, the track with the most votes will be aired on 89.7 Bay.

“The Bay Bands initiative not only allows people to show off their talent but is fun too. Listeners can choose what goes on air, and what get ditched,” said Simon. Log on to www.baybands.com.mt now to see who is the 1st winner of bay Bands for the month of July.
