La Grange’s The Bugle Boy and founder Lane Gosnay host another of the venue’s Sunday Performance Showcases this month — an afternoon of stage time for up-and-coming singer-songwriters as well as fun time for families and live music lovers eager to hear the next aspiring and inspiring musical artists.
The next Performance Showcase is 1:30-5 p.m. Sunday, March 21, at The Bugle Boy, 1051 N. Jefferson St. in La Grange. Tickets are $5 at 800.838.3006; information: 979.968.9944; www.thebugleboy.org. Doors open at 12:30 p.m.
During a Showcase, acts from across the state and the country get 10 minutes each to perform two original songs before an audience and a panel of three judges that chooses three finalists. The finalists return to the stage at the end of the afternoon to perform one more song, and the judges select a winner based on songwriting, vocal performance, playing ability, stage presence, entertainment skills and audience response. The winner earns a cash prize, a spot in the bi-annual Best of Showcase Concert and a Grand Prize performance at the annual Anniversary Show in January.
The Bugle Boy began hosting Sunday Performance Showcases in January 2008. After March, the next one is set for April 18.
Performers can sign up and audiences can check the schedule (and more information) at www.thebugleboy.org.
The Bugle Boy is an intimate 80-seat listening room with theater-style seating for residents of and visitors to the La Grange area, for true live music connoisseurs as well as newcomers to the thrill that comes when artist and audience really connect. It hosts concerts by new and established independent, professional singer-songwriters and developing artists in blues, rock, country, jazz, swing and other Americana genres. Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights, on select Sundays and on occasional Thursday nights.
