Austin’s Latest Talent Search: Speakeasy Superstar!
Attention Austin Musicians: Speakeasy is looking for a Superstar!
Wednesday (March 31st) marks the start of Speakeasy Superstar! This highly anticipated local talent search gives Austin singers the chance to win a grand prize of $5,000, a produced and recorded original single, AND a booking contract with BBA/Management and Booking! Not to mention the fact that everyone loves live band karaoke. It’s the ideal situation for all you vocalists looking for a break – Speakeasy provides the band, you show off your killer pipes.
Speakeasy Superstar will run like the live band karaoke nights Austinites have been eatin’ up lately, so no need to be nervous! The entire month of April serves as a “warm-up” for the official kick-off of the contest in May. Starting the first Wednesday in May, there will be a winner every week selected by an Applause-O-Meter. From there, you will move on to preliminary contests to qualify you for the quarter finals and the semi-finals will start in late-October, all judged by local celebs. The final event announcing the official Speakeasy Superstar will be held on November 17 – mark your calendars!
Don’t consider yourself a singer? No worries. Join me in judging the talent and enjoying sweet drink specials like $1 off Dos Equis and $5 Titos. Speakeasy will be open to the public every Wednesday night, with the talent search kicking off at 9pm. Be sure to check out the event listing on Do512 for more details. See you on Wednesday!
