beta hi-fi Emerging Music Festival 2014

Since its opening in 2011, World Cafe Live at the Queen in Delaware has continued the beta hi fi tradition started in Philadelphia eight years ago. The free week-long music festival held this year from August 25 - 29 features some of the region’s cream of the musical crop and provides a platform for the Wilmington area’s best emerging musicians and songwriters to be heard by local radio DJs, music bloggers and publications, show promoters, label reps and fans alike. Each year, 25 bands are selected from a batch of over 200 submissions and offered the opportunity to stand out among the rest by performing engaging original songs. A winning band is selected each night based on various judging criteria including showmanship, stage presence, professionalism, creativity, audience appeal, and ability to draw a crowd. These winners then progress to the finals held on August 29th to prove who’s got what it takes to win some tasty prize packages from Disc Makers, Rainbow Books and Music, the Dewey Beach Music Conference and way more. Submit your band here by June 6th!

Billy Roach & Political Theatre

Nelly’s Echo is neither a band nor a solo musician, but a concept of the musical experience associated with its creator, Nelson. Relying on lessons learned from his childhood in Africa and his everyday experiences, telling his story through performance has led to comparisons to Jason Mraz and John Mayer. In the end, the goal of Nelly's Echo's is to use music to reach the four corners of the earth, while sharing the message of positivity, life, hope, and love to everyone that it comes in contact with

Blind Man Leading

Blind Man Leading is a pop/ rock trio that creates melodic, expressive songs featuring bright chords and upbeat, jazz-influenced rhythms. Vocals wrap softly around jagged guitars, with lyrics presenting a unique depth and transparency.
