As the Shoreline Youth Jam on March 4th approaches, the organizing committee is excited to be receiving much interest from youth musicians, lining up support from valued local sponsors, and confirming the participation by some of the regional music scene’s most respected and inspired emerging talent as our judges for the competition.

We are proud to announce one of those judges, Keyboardist Josh Rawlings, who is considered a leader among the regions best young players and composers. Josh both composes and plays for multiple professional groups including the RandB band Soul Kata and jazz trio The Teaching. Josh already has 2009 Earshot and 2010 Inside Out Jazz Awards to his credit, with his outstanding acoustic jazz group the Teaching. In addition, Josh is innovating on the business side of the industry as a principal of the performance promotion firm JandJ Music. Josh will be joined by two other outstanding judges in the coming weeks as the show takes its final shape.

There is still plenty of time for the youth musicians of Shoreline, 18 or younger, to join in this special performance competition open to groups or soloists in any and all styles of musical performance and dance. Shoreline Youth Jam will take place Friday, March 4th, 6pm to 9:30pm, at the Shoreline Community College PUB.

The contest will feature a live audience, professional sound, and constructive feedback by judges from the music industry. Performers will be arranged into showcase segments (2-3 songs) and prizes will be awarded in several categories.

Entrants to the YOUTH JAM are asked to submit information about your act, a recorded sample of your performance, and a $20 entrance fee (hardship exemption available) by the February 16, 2011 deadline, to be considered for the show. For more details or to submit material, please contact Scott Becker, 206-533-9112.

Tickets for the show will be sold at the door for $2. Advanced ticket purchases will be available through select local merchants (details coming soon). A limited number of free tickets will be provided to each participant for family or friends.

Refreshments will be available for purchase from the PUB Chartwells Espresso and Deli. So, bring your friends, bring your family, bring everyone you know to support your favorite act and enjoy a great night of entertainment!
