Jet Start Program - apply today!

Jets and Banyule Council are proud to give young local singers and musicians a chance to kick start their career in 2015!

We are looking for the most promising local singers and musicians in the genre of funk and soul, who will be judged by a panel of young people from our FReeZA and Jets Crew Members programs, assisted by Jets staff.

The winners will work with a professional soul and funk super band to rehearse a song to perform at Banyule’s major music event Twilight Sounds on Saturday 21 March 2015. Twilight Sounds is a community event, attracting some families, so the winning act will need to have an element of mainstream appeal.

Entrants will be judged on a range of categories including skill level, presentation, dedication to a musical career and commercial potential.

Rehearsals for the winning band will be held on a range of weeknights during February and early March at Jets, 2/24 The Concord, Bundoora.

To apply, send an audition video link - minimum 30 seconds, maximum 4 minutes - as part of your application. Please also submit an example of you performing something within the funk and soul genre. 



If you have any questions, contact Jets on 9098 8000 or email

Applications close Sunday 1 February.
