San Rafael, CA - December 21, 2009 -- Joy Entertainment LLC, developer of the “What’s Hot” iPhone music application, Riff Raters, announced today that it is launching a Top Riff Contest with Blue Star Music Camps. Riff Raters is donating 5% of all proceeds of Riff Raters to Blue Star Music Camps, a non-profit organization dedicated to “passing on” the legacy of music to the next generation.
The Top Riff Contest called “Riff Off” will include all weekly top riffs for all instruments until February 8, 2010. From February 9-15th all the weekly top riffs will be rated in a separate section in Riff Raters. On February 15, 2010 at noon, the Top Riff will win a guitar signed by a Blue Star Music Camps’ famous musician. Top artists such as Carlos Santana, Bono, Bob Weir, Bonnie Raitt, Earl Klugh, Keith Richards, Craig Chaquico, BB King and Clarence Clemons to name a few have contributed musically and financially to the ongoing efforts of Blue Star Music Camps.
Singer, songwriter, guitarist, and member of legendary band The Grateful Dead, Bob Weir says “Blue Star Music Camps and Riff Raters are a perfect fit and lowers the learning curve for a musician while enhancing their creativity.” "Blue Star Music Camps believes that if you have a repertoire of good riffs, you can play with anyone at anytime…" says Jimmy Dillon, co-founder of Blue Star Music Camps, "and what’s more perfect than a Riff Off contest in Riff Raters that encourages musicians to create their best riffs.” Riff Raters founder and Joy Entertainment LLC CEO, Joy Glenwright, says “This contest will continue to build on the great riffs that are already on Riff Raters. It gives the player a place to try out and get recognized for their creative musical talent.”
“Riff Raters is awesome! Thank you for developing such a fun and beneficial app for musicians”, says riffer Revofoto, one of the thousands of riffers that record and rate riffs on Riff Raters everyday. Riff Raters also has a Weekly Top Riff Contest and a YouTube Video Contest. All Rules and Regulations are available on the Riff Raters website. Thousands have joined the Riff Raters Facebook Fan Page where they interact and keep up with Riff Raters latest information.
