The Illinois Park & Recreation Association's Teen Committee offers this opportunity for teen bands throughout Illinois. It features young musicians and gives them a chance to play in front of a new audience, meet other bands, and gain experience on stage. Judges give feedback at each level of the competition and the top bands win additional chances to play as well as other prizes.
Winners move on to regional competitions, then can advance to state finals at the August Illinois State Fair.
All musical styles are welcome. Band members must be between the ages of 12-21, with at least half of the members 19 or under on the date of the state finals.
