Stage Write Songwriter's Night

Tonight I had the privilege to sing in the Stage Write Songwriter’s Night presented by Plugged In Entertainment.  Joy Collins and Joe Hrasna have taken on the daunting challenge of consistently finding, booking, and promoting talented singer/songwriters with this songwriter night.  Every Wednesday night they are there ready to discover new talent and encourage old friends.

Currently held at the Blue Bar, the Stage Write night is like a weekly family reunion.  On any given night the crowd will be made up of singers, musicians, artists, songwriters, and a vast collection of industry regulars.  Although the line up changes week to week, the goal remains the same… sing your heart out.

The night is typically hosted by one of the songwriters of the evening.  They keep the party rolling while the scheduled songwriters rotate on and off the stage.  I had a chance to m.c. the night and it was a blast.  Most nights the performers are joined by percussionists that sit in on the sets and lend a rhythmic hand to their song.  The songwriters that are scheduled to perform either have a 3 song/15 minute spot, a seat in a round, or they are the featured guest of the evening and then you have a larger chunk of time all to yourself!
