Piedmont Natural Gas Downtown Alive Kicks Off Gimme the Gig

Piedmont Natural Gas Downtown Alive kicks off its annual Gimme the Gig competition today, inviting bands to battle for a chance to earn a paid gig at the weekly series on August 29 and studio time at Sit-n-Spin Recording Studios.

Last year, nearly 20 bands submitted entries and almost 2,000 votes were cast. Kami Ocean & the Rhythm was last year’s winner, and since then, the seven-piece Upstate soul, blues and jazz band has played at various venues throughout the Upstate and booked numerous private events and festivals.

Participating bands will ultimately be narrowed down to a group of finalists, giving music fans the opportunity to cast a vote for their favorite band online. The band receiving the largest number of votes will earn a paid gig and recording studio time.

To enter, bands can submit their audio and/or video June 20 through July 4 to with “Gimme the Gig” in the subject line. The contest is free to enter and additional rules can be viewed online. For more information about Piedmont Natural Gas Downtown Alive, visit or follow the event on social media.
