Staging is on land at a private home. Audience will be on water in boats. Friends of the house party will be allowed on land but others are requested to enjoy from afloat.
A professional sound system will be employed for all events. As possible, it would be wonderful for musicians to involve the audience. A sing-along portion of their performance involving participants in singing along with old folk songs, familiar contemporary tunes, fun and playful music of all kinds that folks will know! We’d like folks to hear and understand the lyrics and enjoy the full sound rather than be blasted with noise.
Second Sundays in June, July, and August. The event will start around 5pm (set-up at approx. 3 PM). Dates are June 10, July 8, and August 12, 2012.
There will be boats anchored out in the cove, folks grilling out,
swimming, drinking, and a generally free-spirited Summertime energy. This
event is early evening (5 - 7 PM),
so the family-diverse feeling is important- and no
foul language. Musicians will be expected to be charismatic, fun, able to
energize a crowd.
AUDITION NOW (yes, you!)
