Durango Night @ Compound Grill

Monday, April 18, 2011

Nashville Showcase Hits The Road, Jack


For the next three months we will be hosting a Durango Night the THIRD MONDAY of the month in three different cities: Phoenix (Scottsdale) AZ, Woodland Hills, CA and TBA (trying for Boulder!). These shows will showcase our local Durango-ites and maybe some new people as well.

Here is the dope on the Monday, April 18th Durango Night at the fabulous Compound Grill (6-10pm) in Phoenix/Scottsdale Arizona...a very cool place!!!

The Compound Grill PHX



Ear Candy CharityThis special show will benefit one of our favorite charities, Ear Candy Charity. Ear Candy Charity, a popular local Phoenix organization, exists to promote music and raise funds to acquire musical instruments for children who wish to learn to play, and to "Provide Youth Access to Music Education."

"Music in the Family" will be the theme for this showcase featuring some of the Durango Songwriters Expo's youngest and most impressive performers. Approximately six young singer/songwriters will be featured, including Lizzie Garn (AZ),Courtney Cotter (AZ), Jeordie Schekeryk (AZ), Zoe Zelkind (CA),Jamey Geston (CA), Sierra Reeves (CA) and Nicolette Hayford(TN). 

MELANIEFollowing the performances by the Expo's featured up-and-comers, the show will close with a short set by MELANIEand her children Beau Jarred and Jeordie, also grown professional performers.

MELANIE is most known for her memorable performance at Woodstock '69, perhaps the most famous music event in history. MELANIE and her music still thrive today. Her 1971 #1 hit Brand New Key" is currently featured in the "Happy Baby" HP printer commercial and the hit movie Jackass 3D. MELANIE performed at the Expo in Boulder 2010 and is a recent transplant from Tennessee to the greater Phoenix community.

There is no set cover charge for the show but donations are requested and will be accepted at the door to benefit Ear Candy Charity.

Special thanks to Compound Grill for hosting us!
