MEMPHIS, Tenn.(localmemphis.com)- Aspiring musicians had the opportunity to showcase their music to industry professionals Sunday.
Springboard Memphis hosted a band and bar crawl on Beale Street in Downtown Memphis.
The event is a part of weekend-long conference for emerging artists across the United States.
The artists were handpicked from more than 2,000 acts who submitted applications and demos of their music.
The event brought together 50 bands and solo artists at multiple venues on Beale.
“It’s incredible, I mean it’s very important because we really give them the tools, they need to succeed so this is a chance to network, meet new people, advance their careers and give them a leg up,” said Heather Hudson of Springboard Memphis.
Musical acts will be performing until midnight.
Tickets are $20, and all proceeds benefit Springboard’s non-profit partners.
