Launchpad is a music competition for high school students who are in bands formed outside of school, you'll compete against your peers in a regional concert extravaganza. The top three finalists from each region then compete in Madison for the grand prize: free studio recording time in Madison, a Summerfest appearance and the Les Paul Launchpad Award.

Dennis began the competition 6 years ago, with the intention of giving some of our state's most talented, and under recognized musicians, the chance to shine.

Take a listen to what Dennis had to say...
