Here at Cardi's we love to get involved with the community. Whether it's collecting
gifts for Toys for Tots or loading trucks for a food drive, we lend a helping hand whenever possible!
Right now, we are partnering with The Rhode Show for our annual Big Break contest. A local artist (or group) can enter to win a professionally recorded music video produced by NiRoPe Studios, which will be aired during American Idol, and also have the opportunity to perform live at the Lighthouse Bar at Twin River.
Last year's winner, Kevin Herchen, has really benefited from his win. I spoke with him recently, and he told me that he was able to leave his day job and just play music full-time. It sounded like a real dream come true! He entered the contest as a solo act, and won with his song 'Stronger'. He has since started "The Kevin Herchen Band" and is currently in the studio working on a EP and will be recording some music videos to go along with that. He was also was very excited to share that his songs have been recognized by the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) and has been added to their "Ones to watch list".
The time for entries has passed, and there are well over 30 deserving entries on the list this year. There are a couple rounds of voting to pick the winner, and the first round is now open! Voting is open until March 2, then the list will be narrowed down and the second round will open up from March 18th until March 23rd.
