3rd Annual SiS BBQ & 1st NWME Awards

  • August 24, 2013 · 3:00 PM
  • Chris Klimecky's Studio

Come celebrate the progress of Songwriters in Seattle and the incredible talent of the Pacific Northwest! Thank you to everyone who's been a part of it. In addition to the annual BBQ, we will be presenting awards as a first step toward the Northwest Music Experience event that we worked on heavily last year.




Event schedule...http://nwmusicexperience.org/performance-lineup/


Performers will be invited based on submissions (not open mic as it was previously). Chris will fire up the grill, the PA, and some other surprises for a summer evening of fun and music. Please bring SO's, kids, friends, and blankets/lawn chairs, as well as BYOB. Let's have an SiS party - This has been a blast the last few years, so let's keep making the celebration bigger and better!


We'll go from roughly 3pm-9pm, rain or shine. It's a festival atmosphere so come when you can and stay for as long as you want. $10 suggested donation (not required - help if you can). See you there!

    Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate and honor the broad range of talent in our community. It was a blast and my pleasure to host such a great group. Cheers to another successful year for Songwriters in Seattle!

    Besides the weather being great for my body chemistry, I enjoyed the food and music, but the most fun was playing HORSE at the basketball hoop out front around 7pm. I had never been introduced to that game before, and was a blast to give my biceps a workout with two others while the music played in the background. Because of losing a job that I haven't replaced yet, I couldn't contribute any beer to the beer coolers, so I also didn't drink any for that reason. But, I had a fun time anyway.

    My husband I had a great time but left a little early when the temperature started dropping, otherwise we would have stayed until the end. Next year I will remember to wear layers :-) Or maybe it could start a bit earlier?

    Thanks Erica and Chris for job well done. Things have grone considering the first two years we were able to get a group picture of everyone on the stairs of your back deck. I had a great time thanks again.

    Awesome day. Got a little chilly at the end for some of my entourage, but I had an excellent time. Amazing talent. Great organization. Chris rolled with the punches and kept it moving. The support staff was awesome. Couldn't have been better unless I had won my category. :) Congrats to those that did win, and even those who didn't; it was an honor to be a finalist.

    I'm really excited about this. I'm bringing my 2 boys, ages 8 and 10. I love that they get to come for two reasons 1) no childcare needed :) 2) I'll take any opportunity I can get to surround them with great music.

      Welcome to the group, Allan. You will get regular e-mail reminders of upcoming events, but I encourage you to look at the group calendar to get an advance view and to find open showcase events you may want to sign up for. See our FAQ for more info: http://songwritersins...­

    There are a lot of talented and dedicated writers and performers out there who believe in the magic of creativity.
    It is great to be "connected". I guess you could call it that.

  • Leslie V.

    What a great way to celebrate our fantastic batch of writers. Thank you for taking the lead once again to provide value to the group. Let me know what kind of help you need to make this easier and more fun for YOU.

    Very glad to see the re-birth of this endeavor. Can we submit more than one song for the recognition award? Thanks. Cheers for now. David.

    June 3, 2013

    • Chris K.

      Only one song per genre, one genre per song, please. We just don't want artists to spam a single category. If you have another song that you'd like to submit in a different genre, that's fine. There is a link to all the official rules from the submission form site. Thanks David!
