Local Artist Showcase


Local Artist Showcase is the premier, local music radio show in Henderson County with thousands of people tuning in every Friday and Saturday afternoon to listen to great local bands and musicians. You can catch Izzi Hughes and Steve DuRose every Friday at 5PM and Saturday at Noon on WTZQ.  As local, actively gigging musicians themselves, Steve and Izzi are passionate about promoting local artists, venues, and the overall music community in Western NC.

We are always looking for new artists to highlight here on Local Artist Showcase! So, if you’re a local artist and want your music played over the radio waves, reach out to us at 1600@wtzq.com with an MP3 of your music and let us know what shows or new music releases you have coming up! Additionally, if you are a venue please reach out to the same email address with your music event calendar or if you would like to learn more about how you can be involved with Local Artist Showcase on WTZQ!

Are you a local venue and interested in having live music, but don’t know where to start?  Or maybe you have had live music for years, but you no longer have the time or want to keep up with music booking. No matter what your situation, if you are looking for someone to fill your calendar, handle last minute cancellations, and take over your music-related social media posts, give Izzi at Hummingbird Entertainment a shout!  You can email info@HBEntertainment.net or call 828.808.8366.
