Music On& Up Grand Finale Showcase Qualifier

Music On & Up and the Young Performers Club have been producing talent showcase events for nine years and have had over 800 performers participate in their shows. We have the longest running and top talent event in the North East. The organization wants performers to become more experienced with live performing, enhance their resumes, and collaborate with each other on future music endeavors. Many of our finalists have experienced success on national talent shows like The Voice, Americal Idol and X Factor, and Megan Trainor, a former Grand Finale Finalist, recently won a Grammy.

This is our Showcase Qualifier Event for performers 21 and under. This is our biggest showcase event. Eligible performers will include solos, duos, groups and bands from all music genres. All performers are required to submit an application to participate. This is a competitive process as we typically receive a high volume of applicants from up to 8 states. Our review team will evaluate your submission and will select 14 performers for the showcase event. We will have numerous awards and many special award categories. Additionally, there will be some elements of surprise with new competition categories added the day of the showcase.

Our judging panel consists of top industry professionals, including producers, performers and writers. Our organization does not participate in the review process and makes sure there are no relationships between the judges and the performers.

Each performer will perform two songs of their choice, both of which may be originals.One band member may be over 21-years-old. THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS APRIL 10, 2016.

During the judging panel's review, we will have a special performances by prior finalists.  We will also have a guest opener to kick off the show.

We will be notifying the showcase finalists by April 12th. If you do not hear from us by that date, you were not selected for this event. We have many events throughout the year so there will be more opportunities available in the future.

We are excited to be having the showcase at the Hard Rock Cafe. The sound system is outstanding so it will be a super recording opportunity.

All performers are required to remain for the duration of the showcase or they will be disqualified from the awards and fnalist selection  process. Additionally, performers who are not present when called for sound checks will not be allowed to participate. We are proud that our shows are packed from beginning to end and we want this showcase to be the biggest one yet!

We post photos and videos from these events and request you notify us if you don't not want any photos or videos posted.
