Battle of the Bands

Get ready for a musical showdown like no other as Zakk Wylde’s BERZERKUS presents the Battle of the Bands – a talent search in the months leading up to the main event. 

Zakk Wylde is a legendary guitar player in some of the world’s greatest rock bands: Black Label Society, Ozzy Ozzborne and Pantera, who also plays in one of the world’s greatest tribute bands: Zakk Sabbath. He wants to give bands the chance to play live with him at BERZERKUS

This is not just a competition; it’s an opportunity for rock bands, tribute acts, and cover bands from the local area, the tri-state region, and beyond to showcase their talent and earn the chance to play live on stage at BERZERKUS.

As if the opportunity to play live on stage at BERZERKUS isn’t enticing enough, the grand prize winning band will also take home a prize package of music gear, equipment, a recording session with Grammy Nominated Mix Engineer and Producer Dan Malsch, and more. 

“Come down and kick some ass with everybody else!” – Zakk Wylde 

“It’s about supporting emerging talent and providing them with an opportunity they need to take their music to the next level.” John M. Oakes, CEO Poconos Park/From The Roots
