Just thought I would share some inspiration to those entering this challenge. My bud Bleu is a master at this sort of thing. While he was still under contract with a major label, this was a side project covering the sound of Def Leppard. Loud Lion... Get it? LOL Featuring Allison Robertson from The Donnas on guitar. They even managed to land a movie placement in Balls of Fury. He also did an ELO sounding project called LEO during the same time period. Both albums are fantastic sound a likes he did just for fun!
Our Community Challenges were designed to engage the growing community of members that we have here on ProCollabs and to provide a platform for networking, fun, and improvement for those of you who are serious about making better music, growing as an artist, and for meeting and socializing with other talented artists in the process. Not to mention the opportunity being presented to participants to be able to maintain a completely FREE membership on ProCollabs.
However, with only a handful of members now getting involved in these challenges, and considering the costs and effort required to plan, setup, and run them, it is with heavy hearts that we have decided to cancel the current challenge and to suspend all future challenges. We may consider reopening the challenges in the future if and when there is more of a demand for this type of thing by the community itself.
For those of you who have enjoyed these challenges over the last year (and we have some amazing music in the Music Library now as a result of your efforts), you are all very welcome to use the forum space in order to setup and manage your own community challenges. We’d love to see you guys continuing with the great work and would be 100% supportive if you wanted to continue.
With that said, we want to thank the few members who did enter this latest challenge. We appreciate you guys so much for always giving it your all and being so supportive. You are all winners in our book and on that note we will be awarding all of you the first prize, actually, double that.. you guys deserve it!
