"Next Great Family Band" is a music-reality competition that features 15 family bands from across the country, each hoping to follow in the footsteps of iconic family bands like The Jackson 5, Van Halen, and The Osmonds.
The family bands play everything from pop to rock to blues to country, all trying to impress our three experts: Kimberley Locke, whose success on "American Idol" led her to a series of number one hits; Phoenix Stone, a songwriter, producer and up-and-coming country artist; and drummer/manager Samantha Maloney, who has played for bands such as Motley Crüe and Hole.
Midway through the series each expert must choose two bands they wish to mentor. Then Kimberly, Phoenix and Samantha hit the road, visiting each band in their hometown, getting up close and personal with those families while helping the bands prepare for their second performance.
The bands are then narrowed down once again for a final showdown, the Family Band Face-Off in New York City.
The experts can’t do it alone. They need your help choosing the Next Great Family Band. Share your thoughts on Facebook under the Next Great Family Band fan page, and on Twitter @FamilyBandTV !
The winning band will earn the title of the Next Great Family Band and kick off the Next Great Family Band tour with performances at the Friends of Nature Music Festival in Miami, and at the ultimate family destination -- Oahu!
