Calling all rock bands!
Nonnas 1977, a classic rock themed pizzeria with locations in Astoria and Bayside, just announced that they will be hosting a “battle of the bands” competition on their social media platforms.
The winning band will receive a $100 NONNAS 1977 gift card, a custom pie named after them, a feature story in the local Queens Ledger Newspaper, and a chance to perform live in front of fans at NONNAS’ Astoria location on Astoria Boulevard later this month.
To enter, bands are required to post a one-minute video performance on their Instagram, Facebook, or TikTok feed and tag @nonnas1977 Pizzeria and use the hashtag @nonnas1977bandwars. Bands can rock out to an original or cover classic rock song. If the band does not have a social media page, the performance can be submitted by emailing [email protected].
NONNAS 1977 will select the top 4 bands, post each band’s performance on their Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok feeds, and NONNAS 1977’s fans will vote by commenting on their favorite performance.
The submission deadline is Wednesday, June 16th and voting will start on Friday, June 18th on all NONNAS 1977 social media platforms of Instagram, Facebook, and Tiktok.
“We are as just passionate about rock and roll music as we are about making great pizza,” said NONNAS 1977 co-owner Leon Leandrou.
That fact is evident as soon as you walk into NONNAS 1977.
The pizzeria names each of their pies after famous classic rock song such as “Proud Mary” or “Roxanne”. There is classic rock memorabilia on the walls, and classic rock playing on the speakers, making the NONNAS 1977 experience a rocking one.
