This week’s roundup features soul, funk, jazz, and groove gigs closing soon that artists in up-and-coming music cities (i.e., not NYC/LA) will want to jump on and fast.
Fair warning: this week’s Gig Roundup doesn’t include any traditional gigs. Instead, we’ve handpicked some of the best shots for Sonicbids artists to market their music through avenues like TV, Licensing and Songwriting Contests. With past Sonicbids Grand Prize Winners including Megan Trainor and a judges committee consisting of George Clinton, Natasha Bedingfield, 311, Switchfoot, Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jimmy Cliff, Sheila E., Bob Weir, Bootsy Collins and American Authors, The John Lennon Songwriting Contest (JLSC) is an unconventional star-power machine. Read on for more info on this and two other opportunities to launch your career into the stratosphere.

One of two opportunities this week sponsored by Defalco Presents, Brooklyn Night Bazaar (pictured above) welcomes Sonicbids artists of all genres to play at the 400 person capacity performance space.
