HOW IT WORKS

After the MGK staff conducts a listening session and scores all entries, the top 20 entries that score the highest make the semi-finals.  The winner of each semifinal event will advance to the MGK House Band Finals on Thursday, August 24 at Parx Casino’s 360 Bar.

The winner of the MGK House Band Finals becomes the next official MGK House Band
