Hello All:
I've been wrapped up in classical performance mode the past few weeks so I'm looking forward to doing sound..

Two months ago I took a sound gig (multi-band fundraiser) scheduled for this upcoming Friday in RI.

The organizer of the event came to the last show (March 17th) that I produced - was impressed - and decided to have his committee produce a similar event.

Typical: rent a hall, get some kid/hs bands, get a sound dude (me), print/sell tix, etc.
It is sponsored by a city's Recreation Dept. They mean well, but they are a bit disorganized....

The point person from the Rec Dept "picked my brain" as to how I produce my shows... I told him everything and even forwarded my memo's to bands, criteria, etc. I shared all.

The gig is this Friday...I haven't heard much from the committee as of late.

This morning I received an email from a high school student (a gal) that is supposedly running the event!
"I haven't had a chance to formally introduce myself yet, but my name is "someone" and I am running the "town name here" Battle of the Bands and Showcase.

There are six bands supposedly... I asked the gal (via email) for the link to the event's facebook/instagram/whatever promotion... She said that there isn't any of that...

I guess that it was a committee member's job to put something online.....someone "dropped the ball", maybe....

I can get deeper into this by putting up a facebook page, etc. for them but... but it's not my responsibility.... I just wanna be the sound-dude.

The kid bands need something to reference to and post on their online pages....or else no one will show up!

Hey, not my responsibility....

How can little old (anal retentive/control freak/manic) Mike M put on shows that always realize a profit...
while a civic organization fumbles through things....?

I have a signed contract and will invoice the Rec Dept prior to the event.

Let's wait and see.....

      And when you only have one hand, (or arm)....well, the organizer needs to be more than just a decision maker...the organizer needs to have hands on the entire project and learn it themselves. The... more

        The organizer texted me this morning telling me that the hall won't be open until 3:30 the earliest....the first band starts at 5:00...! I replied that it will take me one hour and 15 minutes to set... more
