How Local Band Smokeout can help promote your music

 Reaction/review videos via YouTube

 75,500 subscribers and THOUSANDS of music reaction videos-the most of ANY You Tube channel!

When it comes to reaction videos, BG gives your song or video a rating between one and ten (one lowest, ten highest).  His music background in production and being in a band provides honest, helpful feedback. He takes into consideration audio quality, song structure, etc. If you impress him so much by scoring a 9.3 or above, you automatically get added to the Spotify LBS Bands You Need to know playlist! We are a "positive vibes" environment here so he tends to shy away from negative comments (not only during the videos but during the live stream as well.)  We prefer good, constructive feedback.  See our most recent You Tube videos to see for yourself!

Our Twitch streams are more popular than ever!  Monday through Friday at 4pm PT

 To Request your music to be played on the live stream , come early to add your song to the queue:

In the live stream chat, type the following prompt:

!request (then paste you tube link)



(note the space between the word request and the link)

This will then add your song to the queue for the live stream's playlist!


* Limited to three submissions per person and one band per submission *

meaning don't  request more than one link to the same band.


Tell others about the show so they can come vote for your song!

If the viewers like your song, they type YAY in the comments, and if it gets enough "YAYs" it becomes a finalist for another song played of yours played at the end of the stream. (Yes, you can "YAY" your own song!) We encourage every band played during the live stream to invite fans to come vote for them! 

After reviewing all the music, the viewers cast  votes for their favorite bands via a live web poll.  The winner will get a second song (randomly chosen by BG) played to finish the show.

 Live streams via Twitch:

Not only does the winner get another song of theirs played at the end of the live stream, they are entered
into our Tournament of Champions. The last 32 winners of our past live streams go head to head in a live stream tournament to determine our live stream Champion! We officially announce the tournament details on our social media and tag the bands that are competing. We ask those bands to provide us with the song they want us to use for the event. During the event, we take two of the bands and play part of their chosen songs and do a live poll for the audience to vote for their favorite between the two. We continue to do so in tournament like fashion until we have one champion!

Because it is conducted via voting, the bands who bring most of their fans to the live stream event have the most success. The winner DOES win prizes! This is our most popular live stream event and is heavily promoted.
