We are having tryouts on April 16th for the Performing Contest at Winston’s in Ocean Beach. Mark your calendar.
A new twist on this year’s contest has added flair to the Performing Songwriter’s Contest. Instead of listening to CD’s and MP3’s to qualify for the Live Performance Finals, members and supporters are invited to come to the live venue and perform their two songs live before a welcoming crowd and our panel of judges.
From each of the three live events, we will choose 3 Finalists who will perform at Humphrey’s Backstage Lounge, and compete for the winning prize. We will also choose a Wild Card. The Top 3 from each live event are also automatically chosen to be included in the 2011 Best of SDSG Compilation CD. This CD will be given to every guest throughout the year who participates in pitch sessions, legal seminars, etc…
On Saturday March 26th, at Davina’s Cabo Grill in Oceanside, we had our first live auditions. The Top three songwriter’s chosen that day were:
1. Candace Graham
2. Maynard Evans
3. Miff Laracy
Our Wild Card was Newcomer, Morgan Kat Becker. Morgan will compete with two other wild card picks for a spot on the compilation CD and a chance to compete in the finals. Wild cards go to Humphrey’s the day of the finals and play one song for the judges. Then the Wild Card winner, will get to play again later that day! (Go Wild Cards, you can do it!)
Entry for this year’s contest is only $5 per song. The next date available is April 16th at Winstons. There will be two segments that allow 12 people in each segment. So, only a total of 24 people can compete, hurry up and sign up: (email – Sanditarium@hotmail.com)
