We (ES & URE and The NGD Staff) provide online and live music competitions.

Our website also offers potential exposure to concert promoters who are looking for musicians in all genres (Country, Gospel, Jazz, Rock, R&B, Neo-Soul, etc…) for shows worldwide.
Some winners perform annually at select events such as the upcoming Annual Maricopa Community Jazz Festival, and other Nationwide Music Festivals. Others will be part of the Next Great Drummer All Star Band, various other bands, tours, and potentially be included in upcoming tours and CD recordings.
Musicians can register now and compete to see if they have what it takes to be an internationally recognized musician. Winners will receive sponsored prizes from some companies like: Sam Ash Nationwide Music Stores, The Drum Zone, Triplet Drum Gloves, Music Connection Magazine, Drum Pimp, Crazy 8s Drums, QB Fashions, Linear Drumming, V-Picks, Groove-Juice, ABC School for Hair & Theater Make-Up, Cire Film Productions, and more!
Our ultimate goal is to shoot a documentary and reality show on the work it takes to be a GREAT musician.
All online contests begin on the last day of each month, judges review online performance clips, winners are chosen, and prizes are mailed out.
Our almost 120,000+ international musicians and those in the arts following us are asking…..about new products n’ services in their niche. Perhaps we can share yours.
