This weekend I was able to secure the support of Alderperson Brenda Konkel and Old Marketplace Association President Lee Christianson for the Madisonic Music Festival. Yahoo! Did you hear me? Yahoo! Thank them for their support the next time you see them.
Now, I just have to obtain approval from the Parks Commission at their next meeting on April 14th. I don't see this being a problem, however, I will keep accepting band submissions until that date.
REMEMBER!!! All bands selected will be required to split the costs associated with this event. At this point, permit costs are estimated at $367.50. Could be lower if we decide to set up the second stage on a "designated site." This does not include the cost of sound. As it stands, $367.50 split between 20 bands comes out to $18.38 each. Peanuts. This will be updated once I determine what our sound needs and expenses will be, but since we will have a permit to sell merchandise, most bands shouldn't have a problem recouping their participation fee. Cool?
Also, Joe Williams of ChopShop Design http://www.chopshopdesign.net
has volunteered his services and will donate a poster/handbill design for the event. Way to go Joe! Thank you very much indeed. Now we need to find someone willing to design and host a webpage for the event. Any takers?
If anyone has any questions or concerns, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks everyone! You rock and you know it.
