The Half Moon Rising: Songwriter Showcase is a new musical venture for Laurel.  Laurel and Ben began hosting this songwriter showcase in April 2018 at Ziggy's in Stillwater, MN.  The showcase continues once a month on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. The event features 1$ beers and 50 cent wings for patrons enjoying the show.  Each showcase features 3 new songwriters playing all original music in an in-the-round style format. The amazing Paul Mayasich officially joined the group to play lead guitar after the 3rd showcase.  His expertise on the guitar and his amazing ear creates a full band sound for even the most bare bones of songs.  Come on down to Ziggy's and check out this great event!
