Members who bring a song to the face-to-face meeting for commenting, should provide 30 copies of the lyric sheets to be passed out to the attending members. Songs can be played live or with a recording. Note, if you bring in a song that has already been posted to the website, it must be the same song you bring to the Face-to-Face meeting. You cannot bring in a different song during the month. If you are planning to upload your song in the June Song of the Month Contest, you must do so by Tuesday night, June 13, 2023.
