Be sure to put this September date in your diary - a get together for City Showcase Club members at The Regal Room in Hammersmith on 9 September from 7.30pm.
A panel of experts (including David Stark - Editor of SongLink, Sean Devine of ASCAP and Ian Richards (Promoter at The Academy Group) will be listening to and mentoring club members who have signed up to perform tracks live at The Regal.  This is a unique opportunity to perform live at our open mic night, be mentored by top industry executives as well as having a fun evening meeting other club members and saying hello to the City Showcase team (the room has a bar and serves great food).
Headlining the night will be two acts who have been attending City Showcase masterclasses this year - Von Kleet and Dan Raza. As part of the masterclasses they were encouraged to try co-writing and they’ll perform these on the night.
