We are thrilled to announce that Maho Crossroads is the official presenting sponsor of the Legends Music Experience, part of the 2019 Necker Cup!
Have you heard of the Necker Cup and its End of the World Party?! This year they added a Legends Music component with famous bands playing to their special guests.
Necker Cup/Legends Music musicians this year include Florida Georgia Line, Skip Marley, Zia Victoria, and Jewel! Previous performers include Kenny Chesney and Jimmy Buffett!
Maho Crossroads will be having a contest Thanksgiving weekend called VI Music Prize for musicians who regularly play in the Virgin Islands. Both attendees and judges will vote for our winners and there will be multiple prizes for the best musical artists. VI Music Prize will be going on November 27, 29, and 30 and is free to attend.
For those who are unable to be there in person, all performances will be broadcast live on the Maho Crossroads Facebook page. Online viewers will also be able to vote for the winner.
The winner will play on the main stage on Necker Island before other famous performers at the Legends Music Experience! This is truly a chance of a lifetime for an aspiring artist.
Interested musicians should contact info@VIMusicPrize.com and reserve November 27, 29, and 30 on their calendar to perform at Maho Crossroads. There is limited space so we recommend contacting us right away.
To be considered:
1. Your band must be 4 pieces or less
2. No electronic music or dj’s
3. You must be based in the Virgin Islands for at least 6 months of the year
4. You must be willing to promote the event and your presence on social media
5. You must be on St. John and available to perform November 27 – 30
6. You must have availability to travel to BVI December 6 – 9
You can play a part in elevating the musicians who play in the Virgin Islands by attending our VI Music Prize November 27, 29, and 30. You will have a role – and a vote – in making someone famous(ish)!
In person attendees will have the opportunity to vote one time per day for their favorite act that performed on that day. Voting will be weighted so an in person vote counts more than an online vote. All in person votes will be worth 2.
Online viewers will have the opportunity to vote one time for the contest for their favorite act. An online poll will be available following the final act on the last day of the contest. Voting will be weighted so an in person vote counts more than an online vote. All online votes will be worth 1.
Online voting will conclude December 1st at 11:00 pm. In person and online votes will be tabulated, and the winner will be announced on December 2nd.
The winner of the contest will be the top vote getter of both in person and online votes. They will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Legends Music Experience on Necker Island to perform on the main stage in front of very special guests.
Although only one band will be able to take part in this amazing experience, we will be naming winners in a few other categories as well:
1. People’s Choice Winner
2. Acoustic Artist of the Year
3. Rising Star
We hope you’re able to join us November 27, 29, and 30 for what should be one of the most exciting live music events of the year!
