In the spring, Free took a panel of judges–singer Shea, bassist Jon Brant, and singer/songwriter Matt Kramer–on a bus tour to all the reservations across the long state of Florida. At each reservation, including Tampa, Hollywood, Big Cypress, they held an open call for performers to show up and strut their stuff. Contestants were evaluated for their stage presence, vocal or instrumental ability and presentation.
Four or five contestants from each showcase for a total of 20 were selected to appear in the big final show in Hollywood, FL, during May.
