North Norfolk rock and blues duo The Bad Apples hope their talent will bear fruit when they take part in parliament's annual music contest next month.
Matt Neave, 18, and Tom Gray, 17, both from North Walsham, have been nominated to take part by North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb.
They formed the band a year ago and will be entering the competition with their own piece of music, Whiskey Hill,
North Norfolk residents may have seen them at gigs including Paston College's Pastonbury last year.
Finalists will be decided by a panel of international music-industry experts and musicians, and will compete in a live battle of the bands on Wednesday May 30.
Winners will play a live set on the terrace of the House of Commons and prizes include music equipment and the chance to play at high-profile festivals.
