    Posted: Dec 09 2012 at 1:04pm
   I am building a very new kind of songwriters show case and will be playing the tri-state area.I was asked by Hoosiers Lounge to have my show opener at there bar.I talked to them and we agreed an a few shows thru the yr.This is a paid job.I will tell you more on this when we finally talk.I will always be having a guest songwriters seat open for anyone who wants to showcase there music.I will be playing a 12 string acoustic that's got a pick up in the sound hole cover. doing my Originals.Then I will have my lead acoustic guitar player playing lead on a Alverez 6 string electric.acoustic.then To the right I will always have a guest songwriter in that seat.This is for any and all original musicians to show there stuff to the crowd.I also will be having a keyboard player doing music fills for us when needed.I will at times change that to just a drummer ,for some good thump that's always a great feeling in music.I also will be having 3 people come up on stage and either shake a tamborine or sing song lyrics with me.

Then at the end of the night ,the crowd will vote and pick who the winner is.Then I will give them a black tee-shirt saying.I HAD A BLAST AT: ON THE FRONT OF THE SHIRT.AND ON THE BACK.it will say 
At; 41SOUTH SONGWRITERS SHOW CASE.2013. WELL, Casino Aztar loved this idea when I presented this to them and wants me to make sure I open my show there.They made this very very clear to me.Yep.Big Smile.See I have really been thinking and planning this now for 8 yrs ,but never done anything with it.I did some research on it and there is no other show case like this in the whole U.S.A and No one hardly ever has this kind of crown involvement.Well folks.The crowds are what and how we make our money when we play any show we do .So I'm just showing thanks for these awesome fans and asked many friends that are musicians if this would work.Well everywhere from Fla.to S.C TO Ga. to this are and ST.Louis as well as Louisville.They all said, This has never been done.And that I will probley need a special insurance for the crowd to get up on stage.I said I can cover that .and will cover that.I will also be using "Scott Harvey" as my sound man when I do these shows.We talked about this last week-end and the agreement was made then.Hey, ya gotta have a great sound man.Plus he will be setting up the sound equipment for me.          all's I have to do is plug in and play.I like it being this easy.I know the music business,been in it a long time and know lots of great musicians,big time and not so big time  over the years.Well I use the there ideas and use them wisely.And if I ever need anything.There just a cell phone call away.Please call or leave a message on here.Here's my home contact number for my business office.812-909-0606.        PLEASE LEAVE A VERY BRIEF MESSAGE.I promise I will contact you and we will talk then.Have a great week-end and get out that paper and pen an start writing all the originals you can,because I'm willing to use you in my showcase.I want to be the one in this area for giving people a chance to show what there true creation of music is.I don't think you'll find that anywhere but an open mic night .and that's great too because I love the Improve stuff myself, and do open mic at times when I can.But This show case makes everyone really watching your every move.Scary at first,But once you get over the stage fright.its like giving candy to a kid.and Yes .I'm a big kid ,I guess.and I never want that to ever change..I am looking forward to many contacts in the very near future.talk to you soon.Big Nick.

When a band plays covers and originals both. How can you have a bad night.The main thing is just be yourself and if the music is good for the people then its good enough for any place you play at.

   I have made some very important business connections all here in the last week.
Andrea worth and I are talking and I WILL BE USING HER IN MY NEW SHOWCASE IN 2013.
We both agreeded to this.Then I talked to Monty.and he's another awesome musician here in this tri-state area.I also talked to Theo,another amazing talented man with a guitar that just weeps.lead guitar. . and just last night I was talking and playing acoustic guitars with Rik Hilborn.
Riks Been a friend of mine since 2009 and 2010 when I first did an opening show at the posey county fair grounds for Kendra Creek.So as everyone can see.I am gearing up for some amazing shows for 2013 for my showcase.This is going to be one fun show,and the cool part is .every show will be different in some way or an other. Always a differant musician in the guest seat and many happy crowds once this all gets started.I am pushin for the second week in feb for this to all come about.

People .if you just believe in your dreams,and just do a little work here and there.It will come true.but you do have to work at it to make it all come together for a fun time.and Yes,I love a fun time and Am looking forward to having fun with our crowds as well.they will be a part of our shows too.I have always wanted to have a showcase like this, and thought this up like 8yrs ago ,but I  never did anything to make things happen.Well Now I have. And its time to have some fun my friends.Big Nick

   I got these amazing talented musicians when I went to an "open mic" night at Lamasco bar and grill on Franklin.st here in Evansville,In.Amy Has a great bar and some very cool people filling that place up on Monday night around 9 pm..I always have a blast at her business and hope she thrives in her business, because she really supports Original Music.and I just wanted to show my respect and wanted to say I am so happy to have a place that's like this here in Evansville.This is where lots of musicians meet each other.and in time even do new projects with each other.Now that's just a very cool thing, and that's why I love music.

Great people / great music.and a great bar and bar owner.
That sure sounds like a winning connection to me.
Use it wisely and you will meet many musicians in all styles of music.
Ya gotta love that my friends.Big Nick.Big smile

   I am still interested in songwriters who play guitar and want to sing there songs on my                            41SOUTH SONGWRITERS  SHOWCASE.I will audition you to see what you have for these showcases.I will have many showcases thru the year and in many different areas here in the tri-state area.What I'm doing here is opening a door for original artists to get up on stage with me and play there hearts out to the crowd.have some fun.I want to be the guy who inspires you original artists to show your talents to the people of this area.Please have all your stuff copyright before you do it on this showcase.That's for your own safety.all my stuff is copywrite and I would never do a song in public without doing that first.              I exspect all musicians to do this before they ever contact me.Then come and play like there's no tomorrow.by the end of the night,you've shown your songwriting talent and your vocals and guitar playing talent as well.AND MAYBE EVEN CREATED A FOLLOWING IN YOUR FIRST SHOW.Now how many other bands or showcases do this anywhere in this area like the showcase  that I'm doing here.I'm doing this for a more 1 on 1 relationship between the artists playing the music ,and the fans and the crowd watching you play those songs.This is healthy for all artists and fans of our music.its all one positive thing of energy here.and that's always a very good thing.the right energy for any showcase is very very important.I have one hell of a showcase lined up for my first showcase.I will let it out ina few days.I promise.I think you'll like what I did here.a show everyone will really remember well after its done.God Bless all of you.and follow your dreams,they just may come true if you really believe in yourself.......Big Nick

  Hey Nick, Will it really matter to you if the songs are copyright protected? I have never done a copyright on my songs. I probably should but it gets expensive especially when you have as many as I do. It's not an easy process either. Hope these shows go well for you.

Is this actually happening somewhere? I tried to read through all the posts but I don't see an actual date where I can come see the performance. I'd be curious to check it out. What are you paying the performers?

thanks.

   Thanks Dave.for helping out.
I p.m your friend,Toby.Hope your good with me using him on a few showcases if we agree to everything.I just want to get this baby up and running real real soon.The sooner the better, the way I see it.I'm working with John Cadell this next week here in my studio.I am talking to Andrea Worth  as my first guest seat songwriter,I'm waiting on setting up some studio time with her as well.hopefully that happens very soon.Shes an amazing talent and I have always loved seeing and hering her play her music.I think shes the best female artist here in this area.She knows I talk about her like this,because she is a good friend.                               I have been working with my other drummer /bass player and guitarist .Justin beard.who is an amazing talent.And last night I worked from 3:30pm to about 5:30pm with my keyboard player Kent Byrn out of the Mt.Vernon area.We worked on a song called "HELL YEAH. As well as many more that I have wrote here this year,Some fun stuff I have to admit.........You will have to wait to see this at our showcase or if you come to my studio.I promise to keep it fun.That's my promise to everyone I will work with.

The first showcase is going to be one hell of a showcase .Just wait and see once I have everyone in place.      All this work is very well worth the effort of an amazing showcase at Hoosiers lounge.And I want this show to be up and running as fast as we can get things all together.Its been so much fun the last two weeks.                   I thank God for this awesome blessing.Big Nick
