MIDLAND, Mich. - We're on the lookout for who thinks they can belt out the Star Spangled Banner in front of our fans. Like we've done each year since 2007, everyone will have the opportunity to audition for signing the National Anthem on Saturday, March 2nd from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The Loons are seeking vocalists and instrumentalists. National anthem singers must perform a capella. Top qualifiers will be invited to showcase their skills during a Loons home game this season.
Participants are encouraged to pre-register for the event, though walk-up auditions are permissible. Please contact the Loons directly at 989-837-6148 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a time. Slots are in five minute intervals.
Front office members will serve as judges during auditions, which will take place in Dow Diamond's Great Lakes Reserve presented by Chemical Bank.
Anyone unable to participate in the live tryouts may send in a demo. Due to time constraints, bands are asked to drop off a demo tape, CD, or DVD with full contact information to Attn: National Anthem, c/o Dow Diamond, 825 E. Main St., Midland, MI 48640.
