Great show last night at “Chrystal Hartigan Presents…Songwriter’s Showcase”! I was one of the featured artist of the night along with Roger Houdaille (Ex-Norwegian-www.ExNorwegian.com) and Alex Martinez (Sound Sleeper – www.SoundSleeperMusic.com). I’ve known Chrystal for quite some years now and since she’s been doing this event. It’s the only place in South Florida, where not only the feature artist gets the spotlight but also the new and up & coming songwriters get the same treatment to showcase their talent like a pro. I saw great talent yesterday and it was amazing to see such a great turnout for a Monday night. Chrystal and the entire team that put together this event, have gone above and beyond to really make sure that the songwriter gets the perfect environment for them to showcase their craft without any distractions.
For you the fan or live music aficionado Chrystal Hartigan Presents…Songwriter’s Showcase is the perfect setting to enjoy music at it’s raw state. You don’t have to worry about the noisy bar crowd, smoky environment and any other of those things that you might find not too pleasant when all you want to do is enjoy some great performances and have a drink (which by the way they also got tea & coffee plus snacks…what else can you ask for).
It was also cool to see that the community of songwriter’s who attended, also stayed though out the rest of the show to support their fellow songwriters. Like I said on the image above, this event has been going strong for 5 years and is one of the best, if not the best, in South Florida where you as professional or as a music lover can really appreciate some great songs in a very top notch environment.
Finally I have to give prop’s to the Broward Center for The Performing Arts for giving this event a home that not only serves the purpose of showcasing great talent, but also they are placing the seed for future talent to come back and pack the main room when they climb up the charts. Nurturing talent is what will cause the future of our careers to flourish into what we now call, those artist that started in events like these in the past… “The Classics”.
