BMI’s May edition of the Acoustic Lounge series provided a hearty scoop of soulful grassroots, rock and pop sounds. The performances took place Monday, May 5 and featured singer/songwriters Ashleigh Flynn, John Kappas, Michele Zaccone and The Fader Brothers. The Acoustic Lounge is held on the first Monday of each month at Genghis Cohen (740 N. Fairfax Avenue in Hollywood), and is free and open to the public

The Acoustic Lounge is one of many opportunities BMI offers to artists to showcase their talent in front of their peers and a supportive audience. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun, offering a great opportunity to network with other aspiring and working singer/songwriters. For established writers, it provides a chance to monitor new musical trends and be involved in the grass-roots/DIY musical movement.
