We operate The Kingdom All Stars - an independant All Star band for student musicians in the rural Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.
We do this because we think student musicians deserve the same opportunities as student athletes.
We play in barns and at county fairs where we perform multiple styles of music including rock, pop, jazz, funk, soul, country and cheezy 70's music.
It's not a talent show. It's not a contest. There is no prize. It's a working band that provides a place for the most dedicated young musicians across northeastern Vermont to play together and to promote live music thoughout our community.
It's a totally free peer-to-peer mentoring program for student musicians in grades 5-12 from public, private and home schools and run entirely by volunteers.
We've been featured on Vermont Public Radio and performed at the Vermont State House, The Discover Jazz Festival in Burlington and at the Somersworth International Children's Festival.
We also write and record our own original music.
Here's a two minute documentary of us recording our newest song - "Stronger" - in November.
