Musicians' call: Stan the Record Man Fest on Sat, Sept 26, to be produced by Shreveport Regional Arts Council
Having pleased the public with a tribute to Stan the Record Man in the March 2014 UnScene, Shreveport Regional Arts Council is promoting another Stan Fest. "Singers, songwriters, bands and musicians of all backgrounds are invited to apply for a chance to perform on Saturday, September 26," says Pam Atchison of SRAC. "All we ask is that you be able to perform/cover at least one song Stan Lewis produced or wrote."
Bands (current and past) from the area who have at least one professional studio recording related to Stan may apply to "The Art of the Bands" exhibition. This will showcase - in Artspace - the artwork that goes along with these recordings. Also needed: t-shirts, album art, stickers and more.
Apply for the Festival. Deadline 11:59 PM on July 30.
