We're doing it AGAIN!!
Our guest Celebrity Songwriter is Katherine Rondeau!
If you thought our Challenge night was a bit wild before... well, you had better take precautions so your sides don't split!

Two "Best Of" artists, selected by a panel of industry celebrities, including Jeff Rusch of The Crows Nest (WNTI) and Joe Pszonek of Radio Nowhere Internet Radio, will open Groove in the Grove Songwriter Festival Saturday, June 9.

** Please remember - this is an acoustic (keyboard ok) all original material event.

We will have two categories:

AMATEUR - Someone relatively new to #songwriting or has limited professional recordings and does not normally play in public as a singer-songwriter. Can be a performing musician who usually does cover songs and is now venturing into working on their own material.

OPEN - Fairly established #songwriter with professionally recorded CD, who is known for performing their own original songs on a regular basis.

This has always been great fun - we've been amazed at the talented artists that have participated in past years!!!

Pre-register here:

Remember to fill out the form as well as pay your fee!
Each winner gets a 15 minute spot to open Groove, admission to the fest and $25.
