TALENTED local musicians are being scouted to perform as support acts for the headline stars at this year's Epsom Live music nights.
Pop Idol winner Will Young, the Rat Pack Vegas Spectacular, the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, Frankie Valli and Razorlight will be entertaining racegoers at Epsom Downs Racecourse on Thursday nights during July and August.
Managing director Rupert Trevelyan said: "We hope as many local musicians as possible will take up the opportunity to perform at Epsom and add to the atmosphere of these already hugely popular evenings."
Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons are due to perform on July 5, Will Young on July 12, Razorlight the following week, then The Rat Pack Vegas Spectacular on July 26, with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra rounding things off on August 2.
Mr Trevelyan added: "We are delighted to have such a variety of performances at Epsom Live this year. The music evenings have proved hugely popular among both racing and music fans alike over the years."
Any artists interested in applying to become a support act should send a recording and biography to Marketing Department, Epsom Downs Racecourse, Epsom Downs, Epsom, KT18 5LQ, or via email to email@example.com by June 15. Those chosen will be able to stay on and watch the main performance.
