The Center Street Cafe Songwriter Series is hosted by Jeremy dePrisco and based out of Center Street Cafe (formerly Café Mooset), a small art gallery and sandwich shop in Bloomsburg, PA. Performances feature the tremendous songwriting and musical talent in and around the Bloomsburg Area. Most shows run 7pm to 9pm with light meals available for purchase (panini, soup, chili).
Here are some photos from past events:
Past artists at the old 10th St location included Ed & Kim Rhoades with John Sweeney, Michael Hickey, Alf Bashore II, Bruce Barr, George Potor, Rich Ahearn, and KJ Reimensnyder-Wagner. After relocating to downtown, the format has changed to one solo act per evening.
Info for Artists
(Revised 2/10/13, 5/9/13)
The series in on hiatus while I concentrate on relocating. Check back in the Fall.
Booking: To be featured, please contact host Jeremy dePrisco via this web site. All booking is done electronically. Read below first.
This is not an open mic or a workshop. Other venues in town already have open mic nights, so there seems little point in reinventing that wheel.
Recording: In this age of portable audio recorders, cell phone cameras and he like, we know artists might want to record themselves for use on YouTube or for their personal archives. Artists may record themselves, but not other artists, unless previously discussed. We want to keep an open environment were writers can try out new material without feeling self-conscious about being on camera.
As a recent Facebook post once noted: There wouldn’t be international music without local music!
