10 years, 65 cities later

What started as a benefit concert after a brutal murder has grown into the biggest talent showcase in New England. We are a proud affiliate of the Garde Arts Center (a 501(c)(3)). This 1450-seat historic theater has hosted the likes of Kevin Heart, the Little Pink House film, STOMP and much more (check out www.gardearts.org)

Following the immediate success of the show, we set our sights on being a regional showcase covering all of New England. Each year, we added elements that appealed to artists from all walks of life and genres. We paired rap artists with country singers and added coaches to enhance the artist development component. To expand artists' reach beyond the show, we have included professional studio recording time for song releases on iTunes and video production for reels, exposure to radio and much more.   


This sold-out show is the premier opportunity in CT for emerging artists to receive a platform that exposes them to live performances, artist development, and creative avenues to challenge themselves as an individuals who break the mold.

Now, 9 years later and 65 cities connected, we have created a platform for more than artists. We host internships where students learn business, management, civic engagement, marketing, finances, and more with real life, hands-on experience. 


Our goal is now to be global, spurring change while offering talent stages. We started as an opportunity to give youth who were racially targeted and ostracized after a brutal murder something to do, and in doing so developed a platform to serve the untapped talent in New England and expose them to more of the world.
