Machaca’s $1,000 Singer Songwriter Challenge

FEB 20th 8pm

Details

The ORIGINAL $1,000 Singer-Songwriter Challenge returns on Wednesday, February 13th at our new home, Machaca! Now starting weekly at 8pm, 8 singer-songwriters will perform 3 songs each before a panel of live judges. See some of New England’s hottest new performers each Wednesday at Machaca. ABOUT THE CHALLENGE: Machaca presents the $1,000 Singer-Songwriter Challenge: an 8-week, performance event open to all musicians. Starting in early February 2019, this weekly event will select a finalist at the end of each night for 7 weeks. On the 8th week, all of the weekly finalists come together and perform for a piece of the $1,000 cash prize. Sign up by emailing your name, phone number and whether you are a solo artist, duo, trio, etc. to clangathianos@me.com. How it works: This weekly event, hosted by Chris Langathianos, will showcase musicians – solo performers, duos, trios & bands (no drums as setups must take less than 5 minutes) – allowing them to perform up to 3 songs. Performers will play before a panel of judges. The judges panels will change from week to week and will be made up of local musicians, business owners, etc. After each performance, judges will provide their live feedback to the performer and audience. A confidential score card will be kept, and a weekly winner will be announced at the end of the evening. After the 7 weeks of preliminaries, all 7 finalists and 1 wild card will return for week 8 to perform 3 songs – at least 1 MUST BE AN ORIGINAL – before a panel of celebrity judges. 3 winners will be selected and will go home with a piece of the $1,000 cash prize. 1st place / $700, 2nd / $200, and 3rd / $100. Other details: 1. Performers may participate on a weekly basis but may only win one week. 2. In the event of high demand for performance spots, the event host reserves the right to move previous performers further down the list. 3. All audio equipment is provided – PA, microphones, stands, and monitors. Sign Ups: Performers may register for a performance slot by emailing Chris Langathianos at clangathianos@me.com or through this Facebook page
