GARY HANNAN CRITIQUE SESSION, MENTORING, AND PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE
Luna Star Café
Wednesday Feb. 10 and Thursday Feb. 11
Meet the man who carried his guitar through two African conflicts: a former soldier and former commercial deep-sea oil-field diver, and now one of the most proficient songwriters in country music today.
Gary Hannan is a writer on Blake Shelton’s 2013 platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated, ACA and CMA-winning Album of the Year: “Based on a True Story…” and has written #1 hit songs “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off” for Joe Nichols and “Back When I Knew It All” for Montgomery Gentry. He is a BMI recipient of the prestigious Million-Air Award.
What to Bring For Mentoring Sessions:
– Pen, paper, iPad or laptop (we will provide a boombox)
– CD recordings of your songs with them backed up to your smartphone, just in case
– 2 copies of each lyric sheet
– Guitar or keyboard if needed
Be at cafe 15 minutes prior to your scheduled session. Wait for previous session to end and Gary will greet you at door.
Call or text Janet Goodman at 305-297-5695 with your questions, problems, etc.
Use your session any way you wish. Pick Gary’s brain about the music biz, melody writing, get performance tips and critiques.
