What is “Showcase”
1. With “Showcase” Rafael Unplugged and Roger B&R aims to be the next step in a new musicians path, where you want more time on stage and where the standards are a bit higher.

2. We are asking for a nine (9) minute set, giving you the opportunity to practice it to the minute. No lyrics or music stands allowed on stage. Set must be memorized. Setlist on the floor is allowed.

3. We are going to attempt to livestream the event, so that your performance lives online. We reserve the right deny any requests to take down video’s from a lack luster performance. If you are not ready for the performance, sign up for next months Showcase. Come back when you are - and we’d love to help you get a great recording of that performance.

4. The expectation is to stay and watch all performers, but during the mixer we will show you how you as an audience member can help a fellow artist with their content and socials, and we can all help grow each others brands.

5. Win something! If you are chosen as the act of the evening, you will feature at the next open mic. Also, we're reaching out to sponsors who will hopefully be donating prizes to the winning act, and some of the participating acts who do not win the feature.
6. Get a chance to be featured in Sets in the City - run by Rafael unplugged.

Show Up. Show Off. Show Love.
