Young Performers Club
Opening Doors for Young Performers!
"I can easily say that the Young Performers Club has shaped me into the musician I am today, and if it weren’t for all of the showcases, I would have never gotten into my dream school with a scholarship. So thank you for all you’ve done for me and others. I’m excited to still be a part of these events and help such talented kids develop in the same way others helped me.”–Cassie Wise
The Young Performers Club is the longest and largest running talent program for young performers in the North East region.
The Club (formerly Music On & Up) has been dedicated to building an active young performer community for the last nine years, creating performance opportunities and showcase events for young performers ages 21 and under. Unfortunately, the performance opportunities are tough to find if you are under age 21, so we plan to create these unique opportunities to enhance talented performers’ resumes and performance experiences. To date, the organization has had over 1000 performers participate in their events which have taken place at the Boston Hard Rock Café, Capone’s Restaurant, and Tupelo Music Hall in Londonderry, NH. Many former artists have established impressive careers, with Megan Trainor, the most recognized name after being nominated for two Grammys and having her album top the charts in both the US and the UK. Over fifteen states have been represented and the events have consistently had a full house of fans and supporters. The Grand Finale Showcase event provides cash awards/training tuition to the top performer selected by a professional judging panel. Additionally, we are the producers of the Teens Rock America event and Little Big Shots of New England. In 2017 we will debut our first Northeast tour for young performers, the All You Got Tour, through our partnership with Next Generation Concerts. The tour, the first ever 21 and under music tour of its kind, based on its unique mix of the arts, will rock throughout the Northeast from June through December 2017.
Tour performers will be selected through an audition process taking place on April 30th at Mixx 360, one of the lead venue sponsors for the tour. Additional venue sponsors include the Boston Hard Rock Cafe and Breakaway in Danvers, MA.
