Register Early for the Park City Expo and SAVE $$!

Jim Attebery

Hi Everybody, this is Jim Attebery, co-founder of the Durango Songwriters EXPO. On behalf of our entire staff, I want to thank EVERYONE who helped make the 2006 (June 1-3) Santa Barbara EXPO another unforgettable event!

If you missed it, there's another chance to participate coming up October 5-7, 2006 in Park City, UT (our first time there)!

Our next EXPO will be held October 5-7, 2006 at the beautiful Canyons Resort.

CLICK HERE to view and print out the October 5-7 Park City Expo Registration Form.

If the Form does not print out properly, try clicking on the following links and print the Form in two pages: Page 1 - Page 2.

If you cannot print it out or wish to receive a Brochure/Registration Form by mail, please send your request and mailing address to us via the Contact Form.

(Register NOW and take advantage of the "Early Bird" price of $225, a $25 savings! The deadline for "Early Birds" is August 25th.)

To reserve your room call 1-888-CANYONS and make sure to identify yourself as being with the Durango Songwriters Group. There are two hotels at The Canyons literally adjacent to each other, The Sundial Lodge and The Grand Summit. Both are spectacular! The rooms are just $89/night at The Sundial Lodge and slightly higher at The Grand Summit. The hotels are separated only by a patio. Get a jump on things and help us out too by booking your hotel and flight early.

We look forward to seeing all our old friends and lots of new ones at the Park City Expo!!

Small Songwriting Events like the DSE can be a BIG PLUS.

A Special Note from Program Director, Jack Hayford

Never been to one of our EXPOs and want to know what it's all about? Listen to my conversation below with someone who's "been there, done that"... many times... hit songwriter, Walt Aldridge.

"By far and away, the Durango Songwriters Expo showcased the best talent that I've ever seen at any songwriter conference. I'm currently meeting with and working with three songwriters I met at the Santa Barbara Expo..." —Frank Petrone, Peer Music, LA

Durango Writers Night in Nashville!

Don't forget our monthly Durango Songwriters Night at the Blue Bar in Nashville. Next DSE night is 8/21/06.

Email if you would like to be added to the line-up. Thanks to all who come out to play, listen and support us!

What is

Not everyone can join us in Durango each year to be educated and inspired by our panelists and hit songwriters. But every songwriter can now have access to the next-best thing- and benefit from many of the same resources provided each year at the Durango Songwriter's Expo. offers Members a chance to hear writers, publishers, producers, managers and executives who decide what songs and artists make it to the big leagues.

Annually, we record the EXPO Panel Discussions and make them available in our subscription-based Backstage. If you can't make it to the EXPO in person, you can still get the same information from our ever-growing library of recorded discussions, as well as songwriter interviews and other special features.
