So you think you’re a country singer?

Show us you’ve got it and sing onstage at Rockin’ River Musicfest in August

The search is on for some of the Fraser Valley’s finest barroom singers and give them a festival stage on which to perform.

Almost Famous Entertainment (AFE) operates karaoke nights throughout the region, and will give singers an opportunity to become one of two singers to take Rockin’ River’s “Little Big” stage before Gord Bamford sings 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, at Mission Raceway Park Aug. 7-9, will feature Rascal Flatts, Terri Clark, Gord Bamford, The Road Hammers, Hey Romeo, Julian Austin and more, performing on three stages.

Singing at Rockin’ River could potentially put the talented karaoke singers in front of 15,000 people. Last year, the music festival hosted just less than 30,000 music fans over the festival’s three days. 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,” said Rockin’ River president Kenny Hess. He added this year’s festival has a third stage for the first time. “Rockin’ River Musicfest has been one of the Fraser Valley’s biggest parties of the year, as the party’s getting bigger. This year’s lineup, our party atmosphere, and some talented Fraser Valley singers will make this year’s festival a big-time fun weekend.”
