The Spring Singer-Songwriter Competition at The Blue Light will begin tonight. As we’ve mentioned before, the four week competition will be comprised of three preliminary weeks, March 30, April 6, and April 13 (all Mondays) and one finale on Monday, April 20. Each preliminary round will see a handful of songwriters move on to the finale.
Starting things off, the following 14 songwriters will be playing two songs each tonight:
Dee Carroll, Keith Childs, Daniel Davis, Kyle Graves, Derek Lawrence, Dave Martinez, Austin McManus, Jonny Muhl, Dan Patterson, Daniel Payne, Justin Pecina, Mitch Rambo, Jerry Serrano, and Jon Young.
Doors open at 9 p.m. Music will start promptly at 10 p.m.
Additionally, we’d love to go ahead and get everyone familiar with our intentions of creating a listening room atmosphere for these specific dates. This is ultimately a songwriter competition which values the craft of lyrics, storytelling, vocals, mood, emotion, and feeling. That essentially means giving the one performing our absolute attention and observation. In short, shut up and listen.
