The Downtown St. Charles Partnership is looking for quality performers of all ages to take part in their summer program, STC Live. The purpose of this program is to help create activity by coordinating live, free entertainment at downtown businesses and on the 1st Street Plaza. The program will kick-off Memorial Day Weekend, in conjunction with the St. Charles Fine Art show, taking place on Wednesday and Friday evenings throughout the summer.

The Partnership is seeking artists, musicians, and entertainers of different disciplines who have an interest in showcasing their talents to support the downtown. “We have had a tremendous response to this program, from the entertainers and the public alike. The program has really grown since we started it four years ago, and is another way for people to enjoy our beautiful downtown,” says Lynne Schwartz, Executive Director of the Downtown St. Charles Partnership.

The Partnership will pair selected talent with an appropriate business or location, and is seeking artists who would like to participate in the program. STC Live will take place on Wednesday and Friday evenings beginning May 27 and will continue until September 7.

For consideration, interested parties should email the following:

• Contact name, name of act, phone, and email
• A short description of type and style of entertainment
• Demo and/or examples of past work
• Performance resume
• Any website with example of work, testimonials, etc.

Performers will have their information listed on the Partnership’s website; performers will receive NO PAY, but they will receive publicity and promotion. To help generate interest and excitement for the business and its patrons, the performing entity must present a professional, family-friendly performance including appropriate language and attire.

Whether a jazz musician, vocalist, magician, or band, the STC Live program will promote downtown with live, free entertainment. In the end, these mini-events will help bring more people to downtown, showcase the businesses, and help enhance the district for shopping, dining, recreation, and entertainment.
