Concert Share is Thursday, January 15, 2009
Postcard says to “Look for program flyer in November”
Diamond Bar Center
1600 S Grand Ave
Diamond Bar, CA 91765
Vendor Fair is from 10am – 1pm (probably arrive at 8am to check-in/set-up)
There will be a registration period and a fee to pay (around $25, I think), but doesn’t mention it on this postcard. Then, you want to bring about 50-100 promo packs with CDs/DVDs for the attendees to take back to their committees.
This is where many cities come to see who they might want to hire for their summer concert series. It has worked for us…however, we have been doing these concerts for many years, and word-of-mouth from city-to-city has worked at least as much as Concert Share. Concert Share is not a guarantee you will get hired, but it is a good place to start to learn who the contacts are. It’s also a fun day to meet some of the other bands/musicians, exchange info, and gossip. We hung with Eclipse in the same room last year…California Jammin’ was just outside the door. Nice to hang with those folks for a few hours….lots of other recognizable local bands from around So Cal, too.
January 15, 2009 – Concert Share 2009 Promotion Seminar, Diamond Bar, California 91765 Dates for future concerts and shows for 2009 To Be Announced
My wife, Claire, and I attended the Community Concert Share meeting
in January and picked up promotional packages about bands that perform
in Southern California summer park concerts. I am pleased to announce
that every Wednesday between June 20 and August 22 is now booked for our
annual “Music in The Park” series of concerts. Of course, we will continue
our tradition of beginning and ending the series with the classic rock ’n roll
music of The Answer, and we were again fortunate to secure The Fenians,
the great Irish band that has proven to be such a crowd pleaser at The Park
for a number of years. We’re also planning some surprises that we hope
you’ll enjoy. Watch future issues of Heights Life for details.
