I once showed up for an audition unprepared and ended up singing the 'Star-Spangled Banner' because I couldn't think of anything else to sing. What is worse is that I forgot the words midway through. #AuditionFail

Those looking for a chance to sing publicly while showing their patriotism can audition to sing the anthem at Quad City River Bandits games this summer.

The Bandits will hold an Anthem Audition, and Job Fair on Saturday, March 11 from 10am to 2pm at Modern Woodman Park. According to our news partners at WQAD, if you're not brave enough to sing, there are lots of other jobs at the ballpark this summer including concessions, grounds crew, press box, promotions, stadium operations and more.

For more information on National Anthem tryouts, contact River Bandits Director of Promotions, Stephanie Stierle at (563) 333-2740 or stephanie@riverbandits.com.

Good luck, and don't forget the words.
