Cafe Coffee Garden ..."The Show is a GO, and looking like it may be an incredible night.
I thought Evan was a perfect fit for Occupy Sac, and comments by some people after hearing some samples have confirmed it. Also, I am overjoyed to have Joe Stevens of Coyote Grace. The program is not completely booked, but will be soon. Featured performers are wecome to join the 30 minute jam session at the start of the show.
"OCCUPY NEEDS MUSIC" (working title)
APRIL 22nd (SUNDAY)
Coffee Garden (confirmed for the back garden)
Capacity: 50 people
Show starts at 7:30 (2 hours)
Four 30 minute sets (maybe 5)
Sound: SImple PA system. I will ask more details, but expect a basic, simple set-up. I will ask more details soon and add that to this thread.
1) Local string players jam session, everybody welcome (30 minutes). We did this once at Caesar Chavez park and it was a great success. Encore.
2) (not confirmed)
3) Joe Stevens of Coyote Grace (confirmed)
4) Evan Greer of Riot Folk (confirmed)
(May extend show 30 minutes to include one more act).
Co producer - Kim Sloan (local organizer)
(Kim, please add your contact information below)
$5 requested donation, solicited from mic and collected by passing can in between acts, no pressure. Total amount divided equally between acts (total amount divided four times). Expecting 35 to 50 people. Occupy Sac is requesting 20% cut of total gross before the split, in return for sponsoring the show, and I think that is reasonable. I have gotten wonderful response from Occupy Sac members who will repost on FB - and spread the word, so turnout should be good. Good fortune has also smiled on me recently, and I am so happy about this show I may stuff the can with a couple or three twenties when nobody is looking.
A rather large parcel of property in Sacramento made available by the owner. Currently there are 12 people living and working together, 5 of whom would otherwise be living on the streets. If you want, you can crash here the night of the show at least. Help out with the organic garden and dig holes, you can maybe stay a few more days.
Please do not hesitate to ask me any question, either here or through a private message or email.
Can't wait to see you soon!
