The Write-Off Songwriting Competition

July 11, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

- Free

From the venue that brought you two of Rochester’s most exciting live competitions – The Choice (formerly Lovin’ Cup Idol) and Laughin’ Cup  – comes a brand new series that focuses on another topic integral to the performing arts: songwriting.

Lovin’ Cup is looking for Rochester’s best songwriters to take part in “The Write-Off”, where local original artists will duke it out for the title of “Songwriter of the Month”.

Competitors will perform their original songs live before a panel of esteemed contemporaries who, along with the audience, will determine the outcome of the night.

The catch?

The songwriters don’t find out their subject matter until the month leading up to the show, and have only from then until show time to write it.

Along with cash and prizes, each contest’s winner will receive something much more valuable… bragging rights for having written the best song of the month! ☺


Lineup for  July 11th:

Ervin Russell

Stephen O’Riley

Nate Predmore

John Vadas

Hannah Weidner

Greg Maslyn
