 Iowa Rock 'n Roll Music Association announces State-wide Iowa Rocks Talent Competition 

The Iowa Rock 'n Roll Music Association has announced that registration is underway for the Iowa Rocks Talent Competition.

Executive Director Clay Norris says applications are being accepted online.  "What we're going to do this year is, rather than have locations for the first round of try-outs, it's going to be virtually, and all that you have to if you're 21 or under, is go to our iowarocknroll.com and look for the Iowa Rocks Talent link."

He adds that winners will receive recording time and a chance to perform.  "What we're trying to do is showcase the music that they love, and they can compete for a grand prize of recording time at a major Iowa recording studio.  The judges will take the online submissions and then they will select a group of finalists, and those finalists will come to Arnolds Park on the weekend when we have our Hall of Fame Induction, so it would be that Saturday night of Labor Day weekend, and then the champion gets to perform again on Sunday in the gala extravaganza where we have the 2021 Inductees perform."

Deadline for entry is 11:59 pm on Friday, July 30.
