Drumroll, please...

More Idaho bands than ever before took part in NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Contest. Although the big winner is not from Idaho (check out New Orleans band Tank and the Bangas who stole the hearts of the NPR Music jury), Boise State Public Radio staff were impressed by the caliber of musicians from the Gem State.

The votes are in.

No, we aren't talking about the latest primary and caucus results for #Election2016. We're talking about the second annual NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert Contest (dare you to say that five times fast).

Hey, Idaho musicians: ever dreamed of playing your tunes behind the venerable Tiny Desk at NPR? Well dreamers, your audition has arrived.

All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen announced the second-annual Tiny Desk Concert Contest in a goofy video in December, asking unsigned bands from all over the country to send in a submission.

Bands have until Feb. 2, 2016 to submit their video.
