Calling All Young Musicians! House of Blues Music Forward Foundation Wants Talented Teens to Bring Down the House; Online Applications Begin Dec. 1
The talent of our youth today is undeniable, but how do they take those talents to the next level, grow a fan base, book a concert, launch a career? Starting December 1, teen artists and bands are invited to apply for Bringing Down the House, a free multi-week program that connects young artists to music industry insiders to build self-confidence, develop new skills, and bring crowds to their feet.

Teen artists and bands age 13-19 are encouraged to apply online December 1 – January 22. Applications are reviewed by professional talent buyers from Live Nation and six lucky applicants will be selected to participate in the workshops and showcases during spring 2017.

“Music Forward has access to some of the greatest minds in the entertainment industry and through Bringing Down the House, we’re able to connect them directly with the next generation of artists,” said Music Forward Executive Director Marjorie Gilberg. “We’re giving our young people a chance to shine, one standing ovation at a time.”

Bringing Down the House is a free program where local artists or bands participate in a series of music industry workshops to learn about music marketing, stage presence, the business of music, and live production. The participants demonstrate their new knowledge by promoting and performing in a free live music showcase, which will take place at the Las Vegas House of Blues.

More than one hundred artists nationwide have benefited from the Bringing Down the House program: “This summer we got to play the Made in America Festival, curated by Jay-Z, which was really cool,” shared Jason Harris of Red Letter Day, Bringing Down the House Class of 2016. “Bringing Down the House really helped us get there.”

Bringing Down the House is currently recruiting applicants in the following cities: Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New Orleans, and Orlando.
