Songwriting Contest! Cash prize!
Attention all Songwriters!
In an effort to show support and promote local artists, The Lounge at Tom & Johnny’s and TL Songwriting (Tita Luisa) are bringing you an exciting monthly Songwriting Contest!
The goal is to encourage all songwriters to be active in their craft and experience the creativity, camaraderie and support of the local music community.
There will be a $50.00 cash prize for the 1st place winner paid by The Lounge at Tom and Johnny’s, and recognition for the “runner up”. The winner will also receive a free song entry in the new Song of the Year event that will be taking place in 2013!
Here's how it will work:
The contest will be held on the 1st Saturday of each month starting at 8 p.m. at The Lounge at Tom and Johnny’s. Before each contest, Tom will choose the topic that the song must be written about. Once Tita receives that information, the topic will be posted on the TL Songwriting Group Page, as well as sent to anyone on the Songwriter email list.
The first contest will be on December 1st. The first theme will be MISTLETOE.
The owners of The Lounge at Tom and Johnny’s, along with all the performing artists, will judge each song to determine the winner. (No voting for your own song, and non-performing guests cannot vote).
Songs must be performed live, and the songs must be original material. Acoustic Solo performances only. We ask that performers refrain from the use of offensive content.
21 & over only.
Sign-up time starts at 7:30 p.m., performances start at 8 p.m. Artists will perform in the order they appear on the sign-up sheet. We will fit in as many performers as possible, but the performances will end at 9:30 p.m. or earlier depending on the turnout. At that time we will tally the scores and the winner will be announced. The winner will be invited to perform up to 6 of their original songs, if they would like, so be ready! Tita Luisa will close the evening with a few original songs.
Be sure to join the TL Songwriting Facebook Group or get on the firstname.lastname@example.org email list for updates and networking.
Good luck and Happy Writing!
