Huntsville Songwriter's Round

Come on out! 
All Homegrown Songwriters from Our Sweet Home Alabama!!!
New venue especially for songwriter's rounds!

Friday Nights ~ 6:00pm - 8:00pm
401 Pratt Avenue NE
Huntsville, AL 34801

Rebekah Klein

Most of Huntsville has had lunch, an elegant "tea" party or other special occasions at Emma's Tea Room ... had jewelry making lessons, cupcake lessons or shopped the upstairs gift shop. But, Rebekah has gone and done it! This forward thinking lady has now added an evening of cozy "listening" pleasure by opening up Emma's Tea Room especially for our talented songwriters. 

Friday, December 7th, the first event will begin at 6:00. 
Door opens at 5:45.

Message Rebekah on Facebook at Huntsville Songwriter's Round to get on the schedule. There will be three or four rounds of three singers each, so get a couple of songwriter friends and put together a round.

And, if you need to "chat" to catch up with that long lost friend,  to plan an event  or get an overwhelming inspiration to do a co-write while that pesky little lyric is fresh, there is a nice room with table and chairs just for that purpose! 

How much sweeter can it get?  
Ohhh, yes! There will be some awesome food!

To schedule contact:

Note: Rebekah has already booked a songwriter all the way from Gulf Shores, Alabama! 
Get your round booked!

This past week in Huntsville, Alabama, has been "Hero's Week" in honor of our Wounded Warriors 

People gathered all day at the Huntsville International Airport to welcome our Wounded Warriors to Huntsville for a week of events honoring them and their service to our country. The sacrifices they and their families made  for us.

Veterans from Vet's Motorcycle Clubs all wearing vests with their campaign buttons and ribbons!

See them, cheer them, thank them all in the parade!

Look at this little guy who came out to welcome them!
