Music On& Up Grand Finale Showcase Qualifier

The Young Performers Club has been producing talent showcase events for nine years and have had over 1000 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, won a Grammy and has had many top Billboard songs. 2017 will be our debut year in partnering with Next Generation Concerts on our first Northeast tour, the All You Got Tour, for young musicians. So, our ongoing commitment is to continue to present quality performance opportunities to young musicians in our region and beyond.

This is our Showcase Qualifier Event for performers 22 and under. This is our biggest showcase event, and this qualifier is our 1st  of two qualifiers for the Grand Finale.  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.The top 7 finalists will advance to the Grand Finale.

The Grand Finale winner will receive a cash prize along with other performance opportunities. The winner of this qualifier will be presented three tour dates on the All You Got Tour.

Our judging panel consists of top industry professionals, including producers, performers and writers. Our organization does not participate in the review process.

Each performer will perform two songs of their choice, both of which may be originals.One band member may be over 22-years-old. THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE is March 18, 2017.

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 begin notifying showcase finalists on June 18, 2016. If you do not hear from us by June 20th, 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 and videotaping 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!
