West Coast Songwriters (WCS) – Vallejo competition will be held every second Monday of the month at the Empress Theatre, 330 Virginia St in downtown Vallejo.
Anyone may attend, but only WCS members may compete for prizes. Online membership registration is available. There are 2 winners of the Songwriting Competition each month for Best Song and Best Performance. Winners receive 3 hours free recording time, generously sponsored by 25th Street Recording in Oakland along with an invitation to compete at the Location Playoffs for Best Song of the Year on August 14th. All location Playoff winners will then compete at the Grand Finals in late August for a chance to showcase at our Annual Music Conference in front of a house full of industry leaders and fellow conference attendees.
With over twenty monthly events, West Coast Songwriters is one of the most active music organizations in the country. Membership grows daily and reaches as far away as Denmark, Italy and Ireland. With a robust program of music education, collaboration, networking and the Annual Music Conference, WCS faithfully adheres to its mission of Creation, Craft, Connection.
Start time is 7:30PM and Doors open at 7PM.
