Brent Kirby expands the 10 by 3 to Musica in Akron

The 10 x 3 a pre-arranged open mic, with the performer requesting a time slot, and the scheduled posted before the event happens. Ten performers play three songs each, two required to be original, and the third can be an original or cover. Originals are the focus, with collaboration encouraged. “Everyone knows what time they will be playing so they can tell their fans, family, and friends.” Kirby says. “There’s so many great people doing great things, each night is completely unique musical experience.” Networking and connection with other musicians, creative types and fans is another goal of the 10 x 3. “My favorite part of the 10 x 3 is watching people meet, exchange CD’s phone numbers, and playing each other guitars that’s what I want to happen.” says Kirby. Kirby has presented over 1500 musicians from all over northeastern Ohio and also features regional and national touring acts for the 10 x 3. Kirby will be hosting the Akron 10 x 3 while Jason Meyers, a songwriter and host of WJCU’s NEO Rocks radio show will be hosting the Cleveland 10 x . On the fourth Wednesday of the month, they will swap hosting duties with Kirby back in Cleveland and Meyers in Akron.

The 10 x 3 Songwriter/Band Showcase was started by Cleveland based musician Bren Kirby in June of 2011, modeled after some of the showcases Kirby had played in Nashville when he lived there. Brothers Lounge in Cleveland has been the home of the showcase, with shows presented every week for the last four and half years.

To sign up to perform at the 10 by 3 email Brent at THE10x3@GMAIL.COM or visit www.brentkirby.com and fill out the time slot submission form on the 10 x 3 page.
