If I’m bidding on an auction can I lower my bid at any point?
No – Each bid can only be higher than the previous one you placed.
How do I bid for two or more people for any one event?
As a registered member of Hang with The Band you may bid for up to 2 spots for any
event. If you want to bid for a group larger than 2 people, then a different bidder in your group must
register separately and activate an auction account. They can bid on up to two people. For example, if
you had a party of 5 people that wanted to attend, we would need three registered bidders, Two of them
would be registered for two participants and one registered for one participant for a total of 5. Note
that each bidding party must complete their bidding commitment if they win their spots regardless of how
the other parties fare in the bidding process.

When is my spot in the auction final?
Within a few minutes after the end of the Auction cycle we will determine the

and the spot(s) will be offered to the next highest bidder(s). This process could take as long as 48
hours so if you don’t win right off the bat, you may still have a shot. Once the Final Rankings are
determined, email notifications will be sent out to the winners.
