Rock with Bachman: New Contest Offers Chance to Play Live with Randy Bachman


Credit: Callianne BachmanFormer Guess Who guitarist Bachman-Turner Overdrive frontman Randy Bachman has launched a contest offering one lucky fan the chance to win some cool musical gear and the opportunity to hit the stage with the Canadian rocker at one of his upcoming shows in New York City.

The winner of the “Rock Out with Randy Bachman Contest” will receive a D’Angelico EX-SS guitar and a Supro 1690T Coronado Amp, as well as a $1,500 travel voucher that can be used to visit New York to perform with Bachman when he plays B.B. King Blues Club on June 23 or June 24.

To enter, fans are asked to download a modified version of the title track to Bachman’s 2015 album, Heavy Blues, with the guitar solos and fills originally played by Peter Frampton stripped off of the track, then shoot a video playing their own solos and riffs along with the tune. Contestants then must upload their videos to YouTube, where Randy will watch the clips and personally choose a winner. Entries must be submitted by May 27, and a winner will be announced on June 3.
