2014 BAND AUCTION – APRIL 10-28

KKFI is proud to announce the 2014 Band Auction scheduled for April 10-28, 2014. The band auction represents an on-air music festival, featuring dozens of your favorite area bands and musicians for over two weeks.

HOW IT WORKS

Nearly 100 talented local entertainers usually sign up to donate a two-hour concert to be auctioned to the highest bidder during KKFI 90.1 FM’s annual Band Auction. We schedule each act for 30 minutes during an appropriate music show during the Band Auction, which is usually held over a ten-day period in April.  During that 30 minutes, listeners call in and bid.  The high bidder works with the band or solo act to arrange for a two-hour gig sometime during the next 12 months. This could be a birthday party, anniversary, block party, class reunion, or just for the heck of it party. For Bands and Performers Only: Sign Up to Donate Your Performance to KKFI If you are a member of a music band or an individual musical performer and would like to donate a performance for the benefit of KKFI, then call Bill Clause during business hours at 816-931-3122 or write billc@kkfi.org.


MINIMUM BIDS & MAJOR CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS

Minimum bids may vary depending on the act, but generally the bidding starts at $100 for solo acts and $200 for bands.

TELEPHONE NUMBER AND ADVANCE BIDDING

The number to call to bid during the shows is (888) 931-0901. Bids are taken during the scheduled 30 minutes that each act is showcased on KKFI.

ALL BIDS MUST BE BY MAJOR CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS

All major credit/debit cards — MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express — are accepted for payment on a bid. Provisions for “pay later” are made only in rare circumstances.

ADVANCE BIDDING

We do accept advance bidding.  If you wish to bid on a band but it occurs at a time that you are unable to listen or call, you can make an advance bid. Simply email Bill at KKFI (billc@kkfi.org) and let us know your maximum bid.  KKFI will serve as your agent, getting the band of your choice at as low a price as the bidding allows, and but no more than your stated maximum bid.
