Laila debuts at the Deer Head Inn Saturday with NYC band!
January 31, 2014

This Saturday night, Laila debuts at the famous Deer Head Inn, the longest continuously running jazz club in the country situated in historic Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania. The Deer Head Inn also happens to be where Keith Jarrett (one of Laila's most beloved piano heros) recorded a live album back in 1992, so it is hallowed ground in the world of Jazz. Zach Brock, Downbeat magazine's "2013 Rising Star Violinist," Ike Sturm (bass) & Jared Schonig (drums) will join Laila for 3 sets of music in the Poconos.

Win a chance to perform live with award-winning jazz pianist, singer and songwriter Laila Biali at SubCulture in New York City on July 29th!

Here's how it works:

Upload a picture of yourself with the instrument you play (make it as fun or funny as you want!) to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram by July 22nd.

In the text of the post write “I’m entering to win a chance to perform with @LailaBiali at @SubCulture on 7/29. Help me #performwithLaila by liking this photo!” (Please note, SubCulture must be tagged as @SubCulture_NYC on Twitter and Instagram.)

Share with your family and friends and ask them to like your photo. Easy! The three people with the highest "like" counts will go into a pool of applicants that Laila can choose from to perform with.

THIS IS IMPORTANT: *Make sure everyone can see your Facebook posts. If your privacy settings are for 'friends only' we won't be able to see your beautiful post. If you submitted an earlier picture that is private, be sure to let us know.*

You will have to email Laila a video of yourself performing by July 23rd to be considered.
