The 26th Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase is drawing to a close, and five of the 17 semifinalists who scored top points in four categories - songwriting, musicianship, originality and showmanship - face off for the title at The Rev Room on Friday, March 9.

The winner of that final round will be named the 2018 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase champion, and will receive a prize package including: cold hard cash, an in-studio showcase at Capitol View Studio, a live spot at Patio on Park Hill 2018, live spot at the Arkansas State Fair Bud Light Pavilion, a live spot at Musicfest El Dorado, a live spot at a reinvented Riverfest, a live spot at Low Key Arts' Valley of the Vapors Independent Music Festival in Hot Springs, a Thursday Night Live performance at Griffin Restaurant in El Dorado, eight hours of artist development at The Hive Studio, a PRS SE 245 Standard 22 Electric Guitar from Sunrise Guitars and more.

Check out the sounds of our five finalists; one winner from each night of the four semifinal rounds and a fifth "wild card" band, determined by taking the top scoring band from the remaining pool of semifinalists.
