What you should bring:
Music tracks on CD for your song. You will be singing to your own music, so be prepared. This can be cover songs or originals.
What’s Allowed for Auditions and the Show?
Cover Songs, or just a favorite song off the radio. Remember it needs to be the karaoke version with no vocals unless they are backup vocals.
You may sing to track music, an instrument, or a Capella. Only one medium is allowed.
Original music. One instrument only, a guitar, mandolin, banjo etc..
You will perform before the qualified judges. They will allow one verse and a chorus or more if needed.
Choose music that best showcases your vocal range and ability. Come ready to have a great time and earn your place in Vocal-ocity Music History!
**Please Note: We will accept any genre except Rap and Opera. Though we highly respect these amazing artists, our judges are not as well versed in these areas.
Go to our Facebook page to schedule an appointment by using the private message option. Leave your whole name, the genre you’ll be singing, your phone number and your home town. We’ll need a phone number in case of emergencies.
…and Last but Not Least!
Don’t forget, after you’ve made it through the auditions, invite all your friends and family to see you perform and cheer you on. Their votes will count towards one third of your total scores at the show. Also, 100% of their $5.00 admission fee is going to this fundraiser for Zoo Montana, and it’s a great cause too.
