What is The Big Break?
(Pennsylvania Edition)

The Big Break began in 2012 as a competition for Colorado bands for a prize of winning a fully produced music video from producer Eyal Filkovsky. The contest was created by Denver's Trevor O’Connor of Trevor Rocks Denver, and Eyal Filkovsky. The Big Break is now located in Pennsylvania to give a local band a chance to win BIG.

How does the contest work?
