More information about the FORTUNE Battle:

For the tenth year running, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is hosting a celebration of musicians who happen to have day jobs. More importantly, this event is a benefit helping to support the Education Programs of the Rock Hall.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is a nonprofit organization that exists to educate visitors, fans and scholars from around the world about the history and continuing significance of rock and roll music. It carries out this mission both through its operation of a world-class museum that collects, preserves, exhibits and interprets this art form and through its library and archives as well as its educational programs.

FORTUNE is the premier business storyteller, helping senior executives understand the complex business landscape while honoring their time outside the office. While the FORTUNE Battle is certainly a competition on stage, the real magic of this event is uncovering so many passionate artists who practice and perform for the love of music.

With the partnership of NAMM, the international music products association, this event has been elevated in stature and further supports the value of recreational music making – particularly in the workplace where music fosters creativity, teamwork, discipline, commitment and focus.

Past winners include Strat 5 from Healthways in 09’, The Consumer Republic from Procter & Gamble, Soul Focus from American Century Investments, Cambridge Australia, PANTS! From McKinney, Negative Feedback from eBay, The Residuals from Banc of America Leasing, The Raving Daves of PeopleSoft and the inaugural winners, The Difference from Air Products and Chemicals. These bands include CEOs and forklift operators from Allentown to Alameda to Switzerland.

Here is where you can download the three demos that we submitted:
Mr. Brownstone, Comfortably Numb and Texas Flood. Please, please, please do not listen to them on your computer. The poor sound card won't do them justice. Get them on your mp3 player and play them LOUD in your car or on a good stereo. You need to listen to Underpaid in Hi Fi!
