SINGER SONGWRITER NIGHT

For eight straight Monday nights (7pm-10pm,) singer/songwriters will have the opportunity to perform in our theatre. On the 10th week, winners will be announced to perform in front of three highly respected Birmingham judges.

Anyone (16+) can sign up to perform! You can use an acoustic guitar, bass guitar, electric guitar, piano, cahoon drum, or tracks for just singers. (For other additional instruments contact Ellis.).

Sign up early by contacting Ellis Hopkins or sign-up when you get arrive. To begin the night, performers names are drawn for the order of performance each night. Three or four songs can then be performed.

During the performances, the audience will vote 1-10 on a ballot sheet for the artist/performer. Ballots are placed in a sealed box to be opened at the end of eight weeks. The audience participation and voting on the sheets is a big part of our singer-songwriter performances. This is your chance to be Simon Cowell or Paula Abdul. There's a lot of great talent in Alabama and we're going to find it!

We will take the 9th week off to count up the scores, and on the 10th week, 10 winners will be announced. The more nights you perform, the higher your score can be.

For more info, call or email Ellis Hopkins at 205.966.0767 or ellis@workplay.com

WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 24

Johnnyswim w/ The Roosevelts

Los Angeles based duo composed of Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez known as Johnnyswim are a mixture of folk, pop and soul. Johnnyswim can't be neatly packaged into one genre of music. But their sound has been compared to bands such as The Civil Wars (their earlier, happy days, of course), and it may even be suggested that their vocals closely resemble what Lauryn Hill and John Mayer might sound like if they recorded together....more
