FEATURE FILM SEARCHING FOR LOCAL MUSICIANS
The Producers of We Believe, Chicago and its Cubs are looking for local musicians and bands to contribute recordings of classic Chicago covers.
We Believe is a story about the love affair between the Cubs, its fans and the city of Chicago. Directed by Emmy and Grammy nominated Director John Scheinfeld, the film is the first to be authorized by the Cubs in over 30 years and has the complete support of Major League Baseball.
One of the most important aspects of any film is the music. The film will include music by artist such as Frank Sinatra and Steve Goodman, as well as some original recordings by Billy Corgan. In addition, the Producers would like to include an original song by a local artist as part of a feature film
We are asking musicians and bands to cover their favorite song about Chicago. A suggested play list can be found below.
We are interested in any and all genres, so be creative! The winning song will be featured in the film, included on the soundtrack and be sold as part of a CD that will include nine other finalist. Proceeds from the sale of this CD will be split among the artist(s), the Production Company and Cubs Charities.
The winner will be invited to promotional events involving the film, highlighted on the We Believe web site and given a credit in the film. All chosen musicians will be required to sign a release.
This is a great way to expose your music and style to a nationwide audience. Please visit our website for additional information at www.webelievethemovie.com

Announcing a new Meetup for Oak Park Writers, Artists & Musicians!
What: A "No Title" Meeting (Artist's Block?)
When: December 17,[masked]:00 PM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Meetup Description: In keeping with the "artist's block" theme, I can't think of a thing to say here right now . . . except come for some conversation (perhaps about how to get past your artist's block) and even have a piece or your work with you that you seek feedback on.
(Slightly earlier start . . . 7:15pm vs. 7:30 pm . . . because the Starbucks closes earlier on Tuesdays than on Fridays.)
