On Thursday, July 25, 2019, we’re hosting the annual SongStudio Gala, where participants take over the stage at Hugh’s Room Live stage for performances of the songs written or worked on during the workshop week. Up to twenty-four (24) performers will join the all-star backing band, who “wing it,” learning the songs on the fly. It makes for an exciting, unpredictable evening of music with everyone on their toes, listening all the way.
For some participants, it will be their first time performing with a professional band, and for all, it will be the first time performing with THIS veteran band, who include:
Allister Bradley / keyboards
Steve Goldberger / bass
Ryan Granville-Martin / drums
In the past, workshop co-founder Rik Emmett (Triumph) was the band’s lead guitarist, but this year Rik is opting to keep it casual, and will be present for in the judging panel if his schedule allows. Meanwhile, expect to hear from several other hotshot guitarists, but workshop organizers haven’t yet made a decision about who it will be. Admission is FREE FOR EVERYONE, and while the seats must be reserved by phone, the audience is encouraged to make dinner reservations early as this annual event fills up quickly.
