NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dunkin' Donuts and Z100 are calling all Metro New York area* musicians to show their musical talents as part of the new Cold Brew Jams campaign. Musicians, 18 years of age and older, are invited to record themselves performing an original Dunkin' Donuts Cold Brew Jam based on provided lyrics that can be downloaded at www.DDNewYork.com. Musicians can enter their original take on the song through March 26th. All songs must contain original music and be no longer than three minutes in length.
Three finalists will then be chosen to perform at the Dunkin' Donuts Iced Coffee Lounge (DDICL) located at iHeartMedia Tribeca Studios in New York. At the event, a panel of music experts and Z100 talent will judge the finalists, with the winner receiving $10,000 towards studio time and a $500 Dunkin' Gift Card.
Cold Brew Jams coincides with the launch of Dunkin' Donuts new Sweet & Salted Cold Brew that features Dunkin' Donuts' signature Cold Brew, sweetened with liquid cane sugar and a special new, proprietary salted whipped topping, treating guests to an irresistible taste combination of sweet and salty in every sip.
Dunkin' Donuts' Cold Brew Coffee is prepared by steeping a special blend of coffee in cold water over an extended period of time to extract a uniquely distinctive flavor from the beans. The longer brewing process provides a rich, ultra-smooth coffee with an inherently sweeter flavor reminiscent of dark chocolate. Cold Brew coffee is crafted by hand in Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in small batches and served each day while supplies last, offering another exciting choice for those who prefer their coffee cold, along with the brand's signature iced coffee.
"Dunkin' Donuts' Cold Brew Coffee keeps our guests energized throughout the day and the new Sweet and Salted Cold Brew is sure to be a hit," said Cathy Chavenet, Senior Field Marketing Manager, Metro New York for Dunkin' Donuts. "Speaking of crafting hits, we are excited to announce the Cold Brew Jams campaign with Z100. The Metro New York area has always been an amazing market for live music and this program is sure to drive excitement amongst various musical communities throughout our region. We cannot wait to hear the unique takes on our Cold Brew Jam and look forward to hearing the finalists at the Dunkin' Donuts Iced Coffee Lounge later this year."
"The DDICL at our iHeartMedia Tribeca studios has played host to so many amazing musicians, so we're very excited to add to its rich history by hosting the Cold Brew Jams finalists," said Joe DeAngelis, Director of Marketing and Promotions from iHeartMedia. "Dunkin' Donuts is a great partner of Z100 and this truly unique program will play amazingly well in the New York market where so many musicians have started their careers."
