Two Orange County siblings have a chance to secure the biggest performance of their careers.

Hunter Wolfe and ARE are among just 40 finalists in the nationwide Grammy Gig of a Lifetime competition.

The duo were selected by a panel of judges that included artists Fall Out Boy, Austin Mahone and Emeli Sandé.

The winning act gets to open for The Neighbourhood at a Grammy concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, California.

Hunter Wolfe and ARE say their music is rooted in the Mississippi Delta sound from the 1930s, with an original twist.

Nabbing the most votes in the contest would give them the opportunity to take their sound to a national level

"It's unbelievable what could happen. The amount of people in the industry that are there that would be watching, just the exposure to all the new potential fans, all of our supporters back home -- you're put on the big stage in front of everybody and there's an opportunity of a lifetime," said Wolfe.

Voting ends January 10.
