Cyclones Announce Singer Search/Autograph Session
Do you think you can sing better than Rueben Studdard? Can you croon and make girls swoon better than Clay Aiken? Do you have what it takes to be the next Surf Avenue Celebrity? The Brooklyn Cyclones are announcing a season-long search for the Coney Island Crooner. Sponsored by Classie Sounds DJ’s and Entertainment, the Cyclones are looking for the best singer in Brooklyn and are giving you the opportunity to show off your stuff in front of a sell out crowd at KeySpan Park.
"We had a great turnout for the National Anthem auditions, so we know there are people out there who can really sing," said Steve Cohen, General Manager of the Brooklyn Cyclones. "This should be a real fun contest where fans can compete over the course of the season to find out who has the best voice in the borough."
Participants will be invited along with one other guest to the first 29 games of the season. They will be given the chance to perform one minute of a song at the end of the sixth inning. All singers will have their *audition* posted on the team’s website, so fans not at the game have a chance to witness each performance.
For information on auditioning for the Coney Island Crooner contest, contact Howie Wolpoff at 718-449-8497. The deadline for entry is June 16, 2003.
On Saturday, June 14th between 11 a.m., and 1:30 p.m., fans will have an opportunity to meet several members of the 2003 Brooklyn Cyclones. The players will be at the Cyclones’ kiosk at Kings Plaza Mall signing autographs and talking baseball with fans.
The Cyclones kiosk is located on the lower level of the mall outside of Modell’s, where Sandy the Seagull will be helping to keep the shelves stocked with the Cyclones merchandise.
