It’s time to vote for your favourite band in the Cavalry Starlite Music Series (Starlite), presented by AccountAbility. Yes, you heard right the Canberra Cavalry baseball team has supported local artists by showcasing their talents at each home game here in the ACT at MIT Park.
Local musicians have been competing for the chance to win a recording contract to help them kick off their musical careers.
Cavalry General Manager Dan Amodio said, “Music already plays a huge role at Cavalry games and we’ve been excited to add this new element to the entertainment at MIT Ballpark. We’re also thankful to be able to give local student artists an opportunity to shine. It’s not easy to make a living in the music industry and we’re happy to be playing a small role in helping these young musicians chase their dreams.”
At most Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night Cavalry games, during the first four weekend home series, a student musician has had the chance to perform a 15-minute set in front of the Cavalry crowd at MIT Ballpark. The top vote-getters will then perform live on Australia Day, Friday 26 January, at the ballpark in front of a celebrity panel of judges, who will choose the winner.
The winning act of Starlite will win the grand prize, including: a recording session at the ANU School of Music recording studio and the opportunity to perform a full set between games on the final day of the regular season, Saturday 27 January.
