National Anthem Talent Tour

The Cleveland Cavaliers, Lake Erie Monsters and Cavs new Canton NBA D-League team are searching for homegrown talent to showcase their musical forte for the opportunity to stand under the spotlight and have the honor of performing the national anthem in front of THOUSANDS of fans! Announcing their first-ever National Anthem Talent Tour, the Cavaliers and Monsters game presentation management teams will travel across Northeast Ohio to hold auditions for vocalists and brass musicians who can hit all the right notes, then give fans the ultimate “voice” in determining the winner from each city!
