TGIF Showdown

Entries due March 9, 2018

On Friday, June 29th, songwriters and bands from around the region will take part in the inaugural TGIF Showdown competition. Be blown away by the locally grown talent during this special edition of the TGIF Summer Concert Series in downtown Morganton.

The TGIF Showdown is a competition open to anyone who writes and performs music as a band or solo performer. Bands competing in the Showdown should not be signed with a record label. Winner(s) are awarded a cash prize, well-deserved recognition, and a chance to perform during the 2018 Historic Morganton Festival. TGIF Showdown bands will be judged by a panel of local leaders on planning/preparedness, originality, interaction with the audience, quality of performance and presentation. A People's Choice Award will also be announced.

The TGIF Concerts are a FREE concert series. This week’s concert is sponsored by Carolinas HealthCare System Blue Ridge, Morganton News Herald, Burke Board of Realtors, Burke County Multiple Listing Service, Judges, KICKS 103.3, Brown & Neuwirth Work in Burke, and Gregory Jewelers. Thanks to the continued support of all our sponsors, TGIF continues to offer high quality entertainment, free to everyone!
