At a community-run event in Seattle following PAX Prime, Harmonix Music Systems, Inc. (“Harmonix”) announced the Rock Band Road Crew, a program designed to engage with and reward the most passionate folks in the Rock Band community.
The program is open to residents of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, and Canada (excluding Quebec) and may be brought to other regions in the future.
“We’re looking for people who eat, sleep, and breathe Rock Band. You throw parties, play on weekends, run a fan site or blog, and may have even high fived one of the developers at some point. Being on the Road Crew means that you earn rewards for doing what you do anyway: talking about, playing, and loving Rock Band. Apply to the Road Crew to participate in gigs and unlock rewards!
Once You’re In –
First of all, all accepted Road Crew Members will receive a free Rock Band 4Band-in-a-Box Bundle BEFORE the game’s official release! You can use your kit to complete gigs, which are challenges that show the world you’re a fan of the game. Below are some examples.
- Host a Rock Band Battle of the Bands
- Take Rock Band quizzes
- Create pictures and share socially
- Create videos and share socially
