About Rock On Palatine
The Rock on Palatine Singing Contest was established in 2015 by Palatine-based businesses JP Wood Martial Arts America and Vicarious Productions. The goal behind this competition is to cast a spotlight on local talent, by allowing contestants to show off their singing skills during the competition and be given a chance to be named the contest winner in different age categories! Spectators: Admission is FREE, and spectators are encouraged to attend and cheer on their favorite singer. Durty Nellie’s will provide a special event menu for those in attendance.
