Bands have the chance to make it big by entering the regional round of a national music contest.
Heats are beginning for music management company MMG’s 2013 East Midlands Battle of the Bands competition.
Entrants will have to impress the judges at a series of gigs to try and make it through to the final of the competition.
The regional winner will get a place in the national final in London.
Bands from the area will be able to strut their stuff at a heat at the Hole In The Wall pub in Cheyne Lane on April 19.
Heats will also be held in Grantham, Derby, Newark, Coalville, Nottingham and Lincoln.
