Reindeer's High School Band Competition to Benefit Teen Agencies

Reindeer's High School Band Competition to Benefit Teen Agencies

The statewide high school rock band competition called The Off-Ramp is rounding the fourth curve and heading into the homestretch-but not before the nine competing bands learn a lesson in giving back to the community. The Off-Ramp is the brainchild of Reindeer Records, the creators of the popular Rock-Off competition that helped out thousands of young musicians since it began in 1984. The new competition is designed to provide a more intense learning experience for the young competitors and leave a long-lasting impact on their peers. Since being selected in November, the bands have had to face various music-industry tasks-songwriting, video documenting their recording studio experience, and marketing. Their fourth task is Live Event Production, for which Reindeer created three teams of three bands with the goal of producing an all-ages show to benefit designated youth groups.
