Where: The Deck at Golden Nugget Atlantic City 600 Huron Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401. If you aren’t familiar with the Deck, click here for more details. According to AC Weekly “The bands are stellar. Each summer The Deck manages to be one of the best spots to see live music in Atlantic City. With a mix of the area’s top cover bands playing everything from oldies to modern rock, you can be sure the party will stay energized. And unlike some bars that cram the band in a back corner of the floor, The Deck features a large stage and top- notch sound system, giving the performers plenty of space to put on a real show.”
How is the winner decided upon? 100.7 WZXL’s morning show host, Scotty Reilly and Program Director, Steve Raymond will host the Battle of the Bands on 7/4/18, featuring bands that have REGISTERED HERE BY THE DEADLINE OF 6/25. We’ll have a combination of audience participation, onsite judging and voting by social media to decipher what band will be given the title, the grand prize $2,500 and booking at The Deck at Golden Nugget
