MFE is Thrilled to Announce the Return of the Singer Songwriter Showcase Hosted at Tellus360!

Beginning January 20th, MFE will host a singer-songwriter night on the third Wednesday of every month at Tellus360. This showcase is a great opportunity for musician to bring some fresh material in front of objective ears and professional songwriters. While the showcase is a great way for musicians to hone their songwriting skills, it is also a yearlong competition. We are thrilled to announce some new changes to the Showcase’s competition. We will be moving the concert series into An Sheben at Tellus360. This room will create a more intimate listening room vibe. Additionally we have changed the judging of the series. Audience size will still be a major factor, but we have also added other criteria that artists are judged by. This year is going to be the best yet for the series, so get on down to Tellus360 for the MFE Singer-Songwriter nights!

The Schedule for the Singer Songwriter Nights:

January 18 — Matt Wheeler (Opening: Justin Angelo)
February 15 — Jack Roberts (Opening: Hollie Mendenhall)
March 15 — Dan Zdilla (Opening: Steve Ward)
April 19 — Nick DiSanto (Opening: Joshua Cohen)
May 17 — Bernard Sarkissian (Opening: Apes of State)

You don’t have to be a musician to attend the singer-songwriter nights just a music lover. Come support local music at its roots and have a great time while doing so!

 

Check out the video below. This year, the four artists who generated the largest audience during their show had the opportunity to perform at the October showcase finale, which was also a benefit for MFE. The four artists who made it to the final round were Jean Synodinos, Steve Chambers, Mindy Nolt, and The Robert Bobby duo. We had a record turnout for the event, with almost 200 fans of the Showcase in attendance! We would like to thank all of the supporters who came to enjoy live music over the course of the year, and MFE would like to congratulate Mindy Nolt for being this year’s winner.
