Go for the prize
Jake Paul is so eager to get people to see his Sublime-inspired Jake Paul Band at 8 p.m. Oct. 26 at Shank Hall, he's willing to give away a prize worth at least $500 to $600 to one lucky attendee.
Through his independent label, Anamoly Records, the 34-year-old Milwaukee resident is offering to pay Studio Z Recording Studios in town for a recording session for a single, plus mixing and mastering. The winner will also get to own the master copy and full publishing rights for the song, with the option to negotiate for duplication.
Entrants must attend the show and fill out a submission form, with a winning ballot chosen randomly from a fish bowl.
"I don't know if I'm taking too big a risk here or not, but I'm seeing great bands playing local hot spots, and nobody is expanding," Paul said. "We're doing this because we hope it will push bands to do something more for their music."
Cover is $10 at Shank Hall, 1434 N. Farwell Ave.
