Sterling Festival in the fall of 2001. The
Sterling Community Center is located at 120 Enterprise Street in Sterling, VA.
The cost of admission is only $3.00.
That's only about 38 cents per band!
During the competition, By Chanz will perform three original songs written by members of the
vocal group. Two of the songs, What,
What Did I Say? and Beat
of Your Heart, were recently recorded at 21st Street Studios in Northern
Virginia. The third song, I
Can't Breathe, was recently recorded at Pearl Studios in Columbia, MD.
By Chanz just returned from
performing a showcase at the Philadelphia Music Conference on June 14th for
representatives from the recording industry including Jive Music, EPIC/Sony, and
Columbia Records. They met Billy
Kahn, who discovered Britney Spears, and were invited to write a song for a new
artist just signed to Atlantic Records. They
gave their demo CD to several record company representatives who requested it,
and to an artist that works with R. Kelly.
