48 Top Performers Compete to Win $1500 in Cash & Prizes Audience Tickets Qualify to Win $500 Bike
Competition Dates: Wednesday October 29th -- December 10th Rivertown Showdown Quarterly Final: December 17th

Columbus, GA -- The Loft Live announces Rivertown Showdown, a songwriter-performer competition. The inaugural Wednesday series begins Oct 29th and runs through December 10th, with the first quarterly final scheduled for December 17th. Music starts each Wednesday at 8:00pm with eight performers programmed nightly in fifteen minute slots. Judges will select finalists to perform an additional song or two, with the weekly winner and one finalist advancing to the December 17th "showdown".

The top contestant wins $500 in cash, an eight hour block of studio recording time and a new guitar. NSAI coordinator and Rivertown Showdown host Nona Christie comments, "We're getting terrific response from our homegrown talent as well as confirming competitors from Montgomery, Newnan and Atlanta -- we'll even have Nashville represented. Plus, the audience response will be factored into the overall score -- and, their tickets will be entered for a chance to win a bike from one of our sponsors." Veteran music promoter and proprietor of the Loft Entertainment Group, Buddy Nelms states "Our goal is to provide an exceptional entertainment evening for music fans in our region. Over the last sixteen years we've enjoyed stellar performances on our stage. I expect some of the forty-eight performances in this series will get added to our growing list of magical musical moments -- but, you have to be there to experience it!" Sponsors include The Loft Live, The Loft Recording Studio, Gorilla Guitars, Ride On Bikes, and Music In Columbus (MIC).
