We have 12 splendid Lake County musicians competing for our Ultimate Grand Prize and Fan Vote prizes. The Fan voting began in late March and will run through April 19 at 11:59 p.m.
Competitors in the I Love Lake County Song Search include John Lambert of Wauconda, Scot Arcari of Kildeer, Rory Tyer Band of Libertyville, Vessy Mink of Barrington, Matt Sams of Mundelein, Squared (Griff Johnson) ofGrayslake, Dan and Jenny Trio (Jenny Trio and Dan Kortmann) of Lake Zurich, Doug Marshall of Highland Park, Dylan Kroll of Waukegan, Diamond Z (Marcus Ziegler) ofLibertyville, Christy Shanks of Lindenhurst and Kyle Schardt of Lake Villa.
The artist who wins the Fan Vote will receive $500 and perform their song at Mickey Finn’s in Libertyville on May 14 where we will celebrate the announcement of the Ultimate Grand Prize winner.
The Fan Vote does not influence the Ultimate Grand Prize winner. A panel of selected judges will deliberate on the Ultimate Grand Prize winner. This winner will receive $1000, a professionally filmed music video and recorded song as well as the opportunity to perform at potential Lake County summer festivals.
