So you think you’re a country singer?

Sing onstage at Rockin’ River Musicfest this August

Do you have what it takes to make it big in country music? If you answered “heck ya!”, then this summer is your time to shine.

Almost Famous Entertainment and Rockin’ River Music Festival are joining forces to find some of the Fraser Valley’s finest barroom singers and give them a festival stage to perform on.

Almost Famous operates karaoke nights throughout the Fraser Valley, and will give singers an opportunity to become one of two singers to take Rockin’ River’s “Little Big” stage before Gord Bamford sings Friday Aug. 8. Singers and listeners who attend AFE karaoke nights also get a chance to win Rockin’ River Music Musicfest tickets for this August’s festival.

Rockin’ River Musicfest, is at Mission Raceway Park Aug. 7-9, and will feature Rascal Flatts, Terri Clark, Gord Bamford, The Road Hammers, Hey Romeo, Julian Austin, to name a few.

“During the next six weeks, AFE karaoke singers have a shot at winning a chance to perform on a Rockin’ River Musicfest stage,” says Almost Famous Entertainment owner Jacqueline Stone. “Everyone, whether performing or listening, gets a shot at winning Rockin’ River festival tickets so come on out and support our Fraser Valley singers.”

Singing at Rockin’ River could potentially put the talented karaoke singers in front of 15,000 people. Last year, Rockin’ River Musicfest hosted just less than 30,000 music fans over the festival’s three days — and they came from all over the Lower Mainland and B.C. This year festival organizers want even more people attending.

“We’re looking forward to seeing some talented singers on our Little Big Stage this year,” says Rockin’ River president Kenny Hess. He added this year’s festival has a third stage for the first time.

The closest pub where Almost Famous Entertainment stops is Sneakers in Abbotsford. For more information go to almostfamousentertainment.com.
