Julie is bringing Andrew Hammond to open up the evening in the first set. You do not want to miss this show. Andrew is like a modern day Guthrie and Dylan combined. His songs are so moving …I could listen to him for hours…his music and vocals make your heart melt. Please do, come out and hear for yourself.

Photos and winners of last week’s challenge

The first week of Katrina’s $1000 Singer Song Writer Challenge 2017 was one of the best nights in live music entertainment I have attended. Quite a few players came from the Boston area. Some were nervous but that did not interfere at all with the awesomeness they put out.. At some points it felt like we were in the presence of the likes of Joan Baez and Judy Collins, combined with the Jakals duo. You have to believe that many in the audience found themselves in awe of what they witnessed last night. No wonder the word goosebumps was mentioned so many times.
Here is a list of the players and judges and winners.
Steve Caraway
Zion Rodman
Jakals (duo)
Greg Guba
The Only Humans (trio)
Prateek Poddar
Patrick Nelson
Phil Holub

Judges: Annie Brobst, Susan Coviello & Brian Alex (who also, happened to do a real fine job on sound)

3rd place Zion Rodman
2nd Place The Only Humans
1st place a tie Jakals & Prateek Poddar

Chris Langathianos did a real fine job hosting the event. Katrina’s had a great vibe all night long and the food and service was excellent,
Special thanks, to Steve Caraway for performing “Quanah Parker’s Band”
