December 9th, 2016 marked the date for the first ever Homegrown Hard Rock Showcase. Featuring five local hard rock and metal acts, I was included in helping to promote the event. The creative concept for the flyer was initially far from simple, and organizing the event was involved, but as we worked together we came to realize a core value. If people in the scene consciously supported and promoted one another, great things would happen.
Each band has grown, evolved, and played bigger shows since the Homegrown Hard Rock Showcase of 2016, but what we were all able to accomplish together helped create a sense of unity and purpose. I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity to have worked with so many talented individuals on one showcase.
