“Ever dreamt of being in a band? Now’s your chance!” says a Brooklyn-based Band-for-bid that is selling itself (literally) via eBay auction. The selling of unconventional items is not new to the eBay marketplace, but the group behind the “BUY A ROCK BAND! (you be the front-man)” auction is really offering the chance to make a wannabe rocker’s dream come true, if only briefly. In five days and some hours, the highest bidder will be entitled to:
-A photoshoot with the band done by a professional photographer
-One full day of rehearsal (minimum).
-A band listing with the winner as the frontman on MusicNation.com.
-One song written by the winner, with the band’s help, recorded at a professional studio.
- One gig with the winner as frontman…location, venue, and time, to be determined.
