The pop teen band, Varsity Girls, has accomplished more in its first year than most bands have done in three.
With a Boston Music Award nomination for Pop/R&B Artist of the Year and a performance opportunity at the most prestigious music event in Boston, joining the ranks of great artists, including Aerosmith, Godsmack, The Cars, Boston, New Kids on the Block, James Taylor, and Carly Simon, Varsity Girls is taking the music industry by storm.
“We have been extremely fortunate to have a consistently growing fan base and it is because of their support that the girls were nominated for Best Pop Artist. Parents and children appreciate the positive messages that are incorporated in all of the girls songs. The time is now to build upon this nomination and our fans can take this grassroots effort to the next level and further grow The Varsity Girls brand,” said Jeff Gulko of The Varsity Girls marketing firm Book Hill Sports & Entertainment.
Since recording their first track in January of this year, the girls have recorded a number of original songs and have entertained at venues across New England including Boston’s Hard Rock Café, Fenway Park, Gillette Stadium, and the Hynes Convention Center, where they shared the stage with President Obama.
They have opened for national recording artists, James Taylor, Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees, and Donnie Klang of MTV’s Making The Band. On December 2, they will be opening for Katherine McPhee at the Boston Tree Lighting. They also were featured in a Back to School Tour sponsored by Walmart.
They have worked with Brooke Hogan on their soon-to-be released single, “Fairytale,” and are currently collaborating with Pink and one of her producers on their newest project.
And how many teen performers earn the approval of superstar Beyonce Knowles to sing one of her songs on a national cable television network? Varsity Girls recorded a cover of her hit, “Halo,” which will be used as the theme song for Nickelodeon’s Halo Awards Show which will begin airing on TeenNick on December 10.
