Neon Mountain & Tipitina’s Foundation present the first ever
CAPITAL CITY SONGWRITERS COLLECTIVE event!
This is a unique show experience featuring collaborative songwriting and performances by some of BR’s finest up and coming + established musicians and writers.
20 handpicked musicians from popular local bands will meet the afternoon of May 12th in 4 randomly paired groups to write and arrange 2-3 completely original songs. The songs can be of any style or genre and anywhere between 1-8 minutes in length, but they must be performed on stage at Spanish Moon the same night!
Many of these musicians have never worked with each other in a writing setting and play a wide spectrum of styles. It will be a challenge of teamwork, writing ability, musical skill, improvisation, and creativity!
As an interesting addition to the challenge, Baton Rouge’s own Lee High Slam Poetry Team will be providing the words & lyrics for the 4 groups to draw from.
The event is being MC’d by the one and only Justin Efferson!
Most importantly ALL FUNDS GENERATED FROM THE SHOW will be donated to the Tipitina’s Foundation to assist in their efforts to provide instruments and musical education to underprivileged children. Show your support by coming out to the show and of course having a good time!
