MIAMI, FL, UNITED STATES, December 8, 2017 / -- Even though Dr. Kim Habibi concentrated her studies in the medical field, she never lost her love for music. Between her shifts at the medical facility, Dr. Habibi has donated time to helping bands in the area succeed. This devotion has led to her decision in organizing a Battle of the Bands event next year.

"Believe it or not, I wanted to be in a band badly growing up," Dr. Habibi says. "I just never had the time to pursue my dreams. With this event, I hope to relive some of my childhood through the bands."

After attending events similar to one Dr. Habibi will coordinate, she decided there needed to be one in her area. The center of the battle is to bring attention to unknown bands and reward the winner. The fans in attendance would choose the winning group.

Dr. Habibi has been planning the event and states more coordinating needs done before she can announce dates. So far, the idea has been widely accepted by friends and hospital staff.

The reason why she is incorporating the hospital into the event is that she hopes to raise money for the facility. Any donation amount would be appreciated.

"While the focus will be on the bands, we can still raise money for the hospital too," says Dr. Habibi.

Dr. Habibi Will Need Months To Coordinate Event

To organize a Battle of the Bands event, it takes almost three months of planning. Setting a date, securing a stage, and selecting judges is a long process and demands plenty of coordination.

Dr. Habibi will need time to talk to musicians, put up flyers, and start the promotion online. She hopes to have almost twenty bands sign up for the multi-day event.

"Any genre of music can join, as long as it's family-friendly," adds Dr. Habibi. "It can be rock, pop, polka, hip hop. As long as there is no swearing or degrading lyrics, they can enter."

Partnering With Local Music Studio For Winner

Local bands do not have the money for proper studio time. The winner of the battle earns a period of studio help from a producer and able to record music.

"The winning band will benefit from working with a professional producer," Dr. Habibi says. "They can put together an album and be able to distribute to record labels. This event could lead to changing the lives of that particular band."

Dr. Habibi hopes to finish the partnership agreement with the studio in the coming weeks. This arrangement would allow to officially announce who the professional producer is and add value to the event.

Planning Still Needs To Be Done Before Announcement

The local theater could play host to the battle, but a larger venue could be needed. The more bands involved would mean more fans in attendance.

"We appreciate the theater reaching out, but we could see thousands of fans attend," states Dr. Habibi. "I don't want to have to turn fans away because of no seating."

Another option would wait until the summer to have the event and host it outside. There are plenty of open space and park areas where people could listen, but also walk around and enjoy the atmosphere.

Having the battle outside would mean vendors could have tents to distribute relevant information and products. This idea also opens up the possibility of two stages. This two-stage notion would let the rotation of bands to run more smoothly than a one-stage setup.

"I still have many ideas and decisions to come up with over the next few months," says. Dr. Habibi. "Bottom line is one band will be a winner and the hospital will have the money raised from the event. Everyone involved wins."
