‘Catch ‘em on the Rise’
Featuring Younger Up-and-Coming Bands & Musicians at GCTC
Calvin Ingram, 18-year-old singer and songwriter of the band Melting Clockwork, is pleased to announce the ‘Catch ‘em on the Rise’ music jam event is being held once again at Gulf Coast Town Center just outside of Blu Sushi and Salado Pedro’s Vera Cruz Cantina and Tequila Bar restaurants on Sunday, March 30 from 4-8PM. The outdoor stage performance will feature up-and-coming bands and musicians performing their original music and songs ranging from folk to rock. All performers are age 21 or under, and have a passion for music and song writing.
Calvin and his 16-year-old brother Sonny of the band Melting Clockwork have been performing for the last few years at various venues throughout Southwest Florida. They feel very fortunate to have been given several opportunities throughout the years to play their original music in front of live audiences at country clubs, restaurants, bars, Music Walks, Art Walks, the County Fair, and private parties. They often play familiar “cover” songs from other artists since that is what crowds often want to hear. However, they truly enjoy entertaining crowds with their original music and lyrics.
Over the years they have met many young artists who share their same passion for writing music and lyrics, but seldom are given the opportunity to perform their original work.
“My brother and I organized ‘Catch ‘em on the Rise’ to provide younger, less experienced musicians with an opportunity to perform their original works in front of a live audience,” says Calvin. He adds, “At this event young musicians will have a chance to show off the real heart and soul behind their music, as well as introduce folks to a different side of the regional music scene than what they are accustomed to seeing.” Joining Melting Clockwork this year will be singer Angela Nizza and the band The Art That Changed Me.
