Katrina’s Bar & Grille presents SUMMER SESSIONS The $1,000 Singer-Songwriter Challenge: an 8-week, performance event open to all musicians. Starting on Tuesday, July 18th, this weekly event will select a finalist at the end of each night for 7 weeks. On the 8th week, all of the weekly finalists come together and perform for a piece of the $1,000 cash prize.

Sign up by emailing your name, phone number and whether you are a solo artist, duo, trio, etc. to

How it works:
This weekly event, hosted by Chris Langathianos, will showcase musicians – solo performers, duos, trios & bands (no drums as setups must take less than 5 minutes) – allowing them to perform up to 3 songs. Performers will play before a panel of judges. The judges panels will change from week to week and will be made up of local musicians, business owners, etc. After each performance, judges will provide their live feedback to the performer and audience. A confidential score card will be kept, and a weekly winner will be announced at the end of the evening.

After the 7 weeks of preliminaries, all 7 finalists and 1 wild card will return for week 8 to perform 3 songs – at least 1 MUST BE AN ORIGINAL – before a panel of celebrity judges. 3 winners will be selected and will go home with a piece of the $1,000 cash prize. 1st place / $700, 2nd / $200, and 3rd / $100.

Other details:
1. Performers may participate on a weekly basis but may only win one week.
2. In the event of high demand for performance spots, the event host reserves the right to move previous performers further down the list.
3. All audio equipment is provided – PA, microphones, stands, and monitors.

This Thursday at the RhumbLine you must come and see the world-famous wallet-emptying Sexophonist and frontman : Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle.The big man on the hippocampus is guaranteed to loosen your platelets and cure your dishpan hands. I’m lucky I can induce him to play 3 times a year.

Of course, the diaphanous “MR.Ed” Scheer who musta swallowed a radio when he was a kid, will be on hand to help with the proceedings.Four singers times ten!

Little Helen Rose


“Let me tell you a little bit about Helen Rose. Little Helen Rose stands 6′ 1″ and that’s without high heels! You do the math. In the meantime, she’ll sing the songs dipped in the muddy waters of blues, country and soul. I guess that’s what happens when you got a dad who is an actor, and a singer songwriter in his own Wright (pun intended). She grew up on this stuff when she was a tall as her papa’s boots. I met her through 21 year old guitar singer songwriter Jonah Tolchin. Jonah’s got his record coming out called “Clover Lane” and he plays electric on Helen’s record like nobody’s business. They went to school together. Chemistry is there. Me, I produced the album, and I’m damn proud to be a part of her world. She’s 25, and well, the future ain’t what it used to be. Stand back, lean in, she’ll tear your heart out with her voice and horn playing. She is a wonder to behold. After all SHE IS…LITTLE HELEN ROSE” -Marvin Etzioni (Producer, Lone Justice)


Jonah Tolchin: singer, songwriter, guitarist, blues enthusiast, Americana artist.

Listening to the New Jersey native’s latest album, Clover Lane, you would never know that the man wasn’t born and raised in the South. Incorporating folk, country, blues and southern rock into his music, anyone would assume that his veins run with muddy water and whiskey.

No matter where he’s from though, Tolchin brings a fresh sound to the Americana scene. Instead of folk or singer/songwriter vibes, he digs deeper and mixes his love of blues with the badass-ery of Johnny Cash’s outlaw phase. Add that sound to gritty, clever lyrics, and you have Clover Lane.
