AKRON, Ohio – The Rialto Theatre is kicking off Emerging Sounds, a series of live music showcases that give new and emerging musicians and bands the chance to hone their craft while offering music lovers the opportunity to enjoy live music.
Emerging Sounds is held the third Thursday of each month starting Nov. 17. Performances are free for attendees ages 21 and over and $5 for those ages 20 and under.
“Anyone who has been in a band knows how hard it is to get started,” Corey Jenkins, promoter and experience manager for the Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance, said in a news release. “Not only is it challenging to get a venue to book you when you’re starting, it’s equally hard to get people to come out. We’re hoping Emerging Sounds can help artists get past both of those hurdles.”
Bands and artists who bring at least 50 audience members to their showcase will have the opportunity to record one song for free at the Rialto Theatre’s recording studio and perform at a Friday or Saturday night show, according to the release.
“We want to build lasting relationships with the musicians who play here,” Rialto Theatre co-owner Seth Vaill said in the release. “We want them to come back to record their music here and then have their sold-out album release party here one day.”
The showcase is open to new bands and musicians of all ages and genres. To request a spot in the Emerging Sounds showcase, email [email protected].
