Cartersville Songwriter's Exchange Meeting Now at Antonino's Italian Grotto

Last Wednesday evening marked the first Cartersville Songwriters Exchange meeting at Antonino's Italian Grotto in Cartersville. The owners of Antonino's have agreed to let us meet and perform inside the restaurant on Wednesday nights. This has been a slow night for business. We will also be able to hold special events in the upstairs room. Patricia Owens is hard at work trying to make the room look more like a venue to hear live music and she also has encouraged CSE members to try to think of a name for it.

I enjoyed the meeting, and I thought the food at Antonino's was very good. For dinner I ordered Chicken Francese with a side salad and a glass of chardonnay. The meeting began a few minutes after 7:30 to allow people who were still eating to finish their meals. We did not have the benefit of having a P.A. system in place, so performers generally had to strum their acoustic guitars harder and play material that didn't have quiet sections. As usual, it was a treat to hear local songwriters play their stuff.

CSE always encourages the general public to come out and attend our meetings. Admission is free.
