Opportunities for Artists

The Music Room at Whistling Willies


Hope this finds yo well and happy. I have some booking opportunities for Tribes artists. I have been producing a new series called The Music Room. It's Thursday nights in the small back room at Whistling Willies from 8:00 to 10:30. I to 2 sets, 8:oo usually 3 writers in the round and 9:00- a Featured trio or band. The 8:00 set is not paid, but you get a meal. the 9:00 set is paid 100% of the door...usually between $120.00 and $160.00 and everyone gets a meal. We have a great sound system and Rick Gedney of Open Book is running the sound and doing a beautiful job. If the owner likes what he hears, he books artists in the big room for weekends.

FIRST: Thursday April 1st. "Harmony Fest Spring Sing" ~The Music Room @ Whistling Willies"

Looking or a cappella or very harmony-rich short sets of songs (3) Artists can collaborate and mix and match. It's going to be an informal evening of harmony/sing-along songs. The songs/sets need to be songs you know and are sure the people you are singing with know too... ; )

I think this would be a perfect introduction of Tribes Hill artists to the Cold Spring listeners; they are major music supporters. This audience LOVES to sing, so it works really well. Also featured will be LeRoy Hankins leading some kirtan singing, more of that is welcome...anyone have a harmonium?

I know it's last minute, but I had a few unexpected cancellations.  Interested artists should email me pronto: PLEASE put "April 1st The Music Room" in the subject heading.

SECOND: I have openings for bands from May13th, and openings for In-The-Round artists sooner. PLEASE put "submissions The Music Room" in the subject heading.
