This is actually about an event which will take place on MONDAY, but I
thought I'd take advantage of the Friday gig posting rule and get it out
Please join us for the West Coast Songwriters Competition at Joe's of
Lafayette, 3707 Mt. Diablo Blvd. in Lafayette MONDAY, JANUARY 12th at 7:30
pm. Performers' sign-up begins at 7:00 for a performance slot.
The show will be a competition among WCS members for Best Song and Best
Performance Awards for the night. Best Song of the evening receives studio
time from Deva Productions while Best Performer receives blank recordable
CDs and jewel cases. The event will be judged by one or more industry
Anyone can perform in the showcase, but only WCS members are eligible to
compete. Each participant receives written evaluations from our judges, or
from their peers at the peer-judged events.
In August, each Competition location invites its Best Song winners to return
for a playoff. The winners of these playoff events perform at the
Songwriter Competition Finals held at the Freight & Salvage nightclub in
Berkeley. From that final, three winners are chosen to perform at the 28th
Annual CREATION:CRAFT:CONNECTION Conference at Foothill College in Los Altos
September 13 and 14 in front of numerous publishers, producers, booking
agents, hit songwriters and record company executives.
This event is presented by West Coast Songwriters, a Bay Area-based
non-profit educational organization with more than 1,200 members. West
Coast Songwriters hosts Songwriter Competitions each month in these nine
locations: Berkeley, Santa Clara, Hollywood, Manteca, Mill Valley,
Sacramento, San Francisco, San Luis Obispo and Sebastopol (Sonoma County).
