With the initial two rounds of the Gold Coast Arts Center (GCAC) and Love Revolution Org’s search for the next big music star complete, six musicians and bands remain as the search for the next big thing out of New York continues for the semifinals on Saturday, March 12.
Matt Grabowski, Taylor Hogan, The Days Beneath Us, the Frankel Sisters, Trish Torrales and Jaclyn Manfredi are gearing up for the semifinals of Your Big Break, a contest that’s bringing some of the best New York talent to the forefront. The center will be rounding out the evening’s festivities with another headlining performance by the first annual Your Big Break winners Youth Be Told, performing with the second annual winner, Katie Zimmer.
Once a month, the Arts Center is transformed into the Gold Coast Acoustic Café, a music venue that showcases local up-and-coming talent as well as established music acts. With its black box theater performance space and a lounge in the art gallery, the café is one of the few small music venues around which makes for a special and intimate atmosphere for artists and audience alike, especially during Your Big Break—a competition presented each year with hopes to inspire the next generation of New York stars, and whose past winners are local musicians who’ve had major success in the industry.
The semifinals will take place at the Gold Coast Acoustic Café, 113 Middle Neck Rd. in Great Neck. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and the show will start at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $10 for students and $15 for adults. Visit www.greatneckarts.org/wordpress/yourbigbreak for more information.
