Philly musicians looking to raise their profile and earn “opened for John Legend” bragging rights should be hopping  on the magical mobile recording studio pulling in to regional World Wide Stereo and PC Richard locations tomorrow and Wednesday.

Sponsored by Polk Audio (and tied to the  gear maker’s 40th anniversary), the “Listen to the Music” competition demands you put vocal and/or instrumental chops to the Doobie Brothers song of the same name in a  high tech tour bus.  Participants  get to access and share a video of their performance, to be posted on https://www.facebook.com/polkaudio/app_572559272806327?ref=br_tf.  And, if  elected by popular vote,  to open for the former Philadelphia-based Legend and the Canadian pop rock cover band Walk Off the Earth at a Polk  party in January at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas tied to the International CES tech show.  “All expenses paid,” natch,  for the trip.

Recording locations include the PC Richard outlet in Lawrence, N.J. on  Tuesday (2-5 p.m.),  then an all afternoon stop  Wednesday (starting at 1:30 p.m.  ) at  World Wide Stereo’s Montgomeryville location (754 Bethlehem Pike.)

Not a player? Visitors are also invited to just hop on, inspect  the rig and listen to the music  through Polk speakers and headphones, natch.
