Q. When is the Showcase held?
A. The singer-songwriter showcase is held every 3rd Wednesday of the month. Check the calendar. Also check the newsgroup for any changes due to holidays and such. The R&B / Smooth Jazz showcase will be on the 4th Wednesday of the month, or as announced in the newsgroup, so plase double check with the MC.

Q. How much does it cost?
A. It's free. Free to perform. Free to attend (no cover, although we encourage you to patronize the venue...buy coffee...juice...anything). Oh, and if you were wondering, you're also performing for free (But you just might sell some CD's!).

  Q. How many songs do I play? How long is my set?
A. The singer-songwriter showcase is a 2-song set for each performer, and the list is a flexible order, but you must arrange that ahead of time with the showcase coordinator. The evening lineup usually allows for up to 16 performers. Please no last minute cancellations, rescheduling, etc. If you are there before 7:30pm, you can sign up for any slot, as long as space is available. If it is a busy night, you might have to wait for a slot to open up, or possibly just be scheduled for the following month. Stick around though, because we do get some last minute no-shows, unforutunately.
  Q. What instruments can I play? What equipment can I bring?
A. The singer-songwriter showcase is a quick-moving evening, so ... Keep it simple, fast setup & pulldown while the MC covers. Most performers will bring a simple instrument, like an acoustic guitar, that can be quickly plugged in to the house sound system. The microphones (2) are all set to go, either for 2 vocalists, or a vocalist plus acoustic instrument. Keyboards are allowed, but please get there early and work it out with the MC.
  Q. Who is Bob Stane?
A. Bob Stane.
