(Victorville) – There is a gathering place for singer-songwriters and spoken word artists at D’vine Wine & Jazz named Maggie Vee’s Songwriter Showcase. It’s designed to connect inspired performers with an audience of their peers and an enthusiastic general audience and it’s back for the Spring Edition this time, with a wine tasting that will run right up until show time.
Singer-songwriter, artist and touring musician Maggie Vee says “The value of each event is evident on several levels. It provides an environment for singer/songwriters and/or spoken word artists to perform who may not be working with a group at the time or prefer to perform solo. They have a stage in which to present material to peers that they may not be currently performing elsewhere and get feedback from the audience members during the event. It also provides an outlet for the creative spirit and preparation for future work which makes for a unique and interesting evening for the general public since you never know what’s going to happen next, both artistically and improvisationally.”
The event attracts serious performing artists, both local and out of the area in a wide range of music genres, including spoken word and performance art which gives the public a unique opportunity to glimpse into the world songwriting, as all original material is presented and sometimes discussed by the artist. At its heart the event is an artist networking event where artists come together listen to material and sometimes form future collaborations or add to their professional contact list. The independently produced and distributed Soul Pattern Project duo will host the event.
As unique as the material may be the audience is equally so, guests never know who’ll they rub elbows with watching and gleaning talent. The event also features guest performers. To qualify you must be able to perform your original piece of music or spoken word live, with a maximum of 1 accompaniment as space and time is limited. Maggie Vee’s Songwriter Showcase Spring Edition takes place Wednesday, April 22, adding a $5 five-wine tasting with a very special and entertaining guide from 5p-7p, then show time and artists from 7p-10p at D’vine Wine & Jazz www.dvinewinebar.net in Victorville, CA.
