Science World, The Peak 102.7, The PEAK Performance Project, Music B.C. and the Nimbus School of Recording Arts are “proud to partner to present five different Teen Band Nights this coming November, as part of [a] larger exhibition: AMPED.”
“The goal is to provide teen bands across the Lower Mainland with an opportunity to showcase their talents in front of established headline acts who are Top Twenty finalists in The PEAK Performance Project.”
It also gives bands with members under 19 an opportunity to “perform in front of a teen audience, network with the established Vancouver music community [and] receive professional audio and video recordings of each show.”
“Teen Band Nights will be held at [the] TELUS World of Science on the evenings of November 1, 2, 8 and 9… a finalist showcase [will be] held on the 16th.
Performances will take place on the second floor in the Feature Gallery, with a maximum capacity of roughly 200 occupants.
Each night will include performances by four teen bands and a special headliner by a PEAK Performance top contestant.
Headliners benefit by broadening their audience to a teenage crowd, and a chance to sell merchandise.”
“Fellow partners and sponsors include: Roland Canada, Music BC, Tom Lee Music, Macklam Feldman Management, The Farm Studios, Invoke Media, Watchdog Management, Fritzworks Printing, and ING Direct who helped build the exhibition from the ground up.”
“We are currently putting the call out for high school age bands to enter this unique series of concerts.
