What some of our past winners are saying about their experience…
 
“Walking onto The Palace stage in front of a packed house was something I dreamt of as a kid, and this event gave me that opportunity. It was truly one of the highlights of my career and something I’ll cherish forever; I’m smiling now just thinking about it.” – Josh Starrett of Supper Break String Band
 
“I’m so grateful to have been a part of ROCK THE PALACE. I’ll never forget standing backstage watching all the amazing acts perform, getting to know the other musicians, and doing what I love at such a stunning venue. The connections I made there were priceless, and it was truly a one of a kind opportunity.” – Jessica Saenz (Eva Eris)
