Speaking of tomorrow, Monday Feb 15th, PLEASE JOIN US FOR DURANGO NITE at the Blue Bar. Special guest this week is hit songwriter and Curb recording artist Amy Dalley. Plus Amanda, Matthew and the usual suspects! FUN starts at 9pm!

The Expo Goes Hollywood! We'll be making a "green-screen" promo for the Durango Songwriters Expo with Scott Monahan. Find out how you can use this technique to build your footprint in the online music world!


This year’s Durango Songwriter’s Expo will open with a free showcase as part of a meet-and-greet at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club, 1221 State Street in Santa Barbara on Wednesday, February 24. Due to the popularity of the showcase with its performers from around the country, the hours have now been extended from 6pm to 10pm. The show will feature winners of the Durango Songwriter’s Expo songwriting contest and professional songwriters, as well as some of the expo attendees. In addition to prominent members of the music industry, the public is also invited to enjoy this free event. Dinner reservations can be made by calling SOhO at (805) 962-7776. Local songwriter Christina Grimm is the producer and emcee for the showcase.

Christina says, "It's important for songwriters to get there as early as possible and check in with me right away. I'll have a clipboard!"


The winners will get to write with hit songwriters Tim Fagan (POP) and Brice Long (COUNTRY) at the upcoming Expo! For more on our fantastic line-up of talent for Santa Barbara click here.

VERY IMPORTANT HOTEL UPDATE: If there are no rooms available at the Marriott, try adjacent Buellton accommodations Motel 6, Days Inn (The Windmill from the movie Sideways), or Quality Inn (mention the Durango Expo).
