Showcase (PERFORMERS) Miller's Grille DownUnder (Lafayette)

SHOWCASE at Millier's Grille Downunder -- Repeats every 2nd and 4th Wed. of each month.   ***NOTE:  I skipped a week, just this month, because there are 5 Wed. in May and I wanted to get on a week schedule when I did not have my son staying with me.  Thus, for JUST this month of May, the Showcase will be on the 3rd and 5th week.

This SHOWCASE is announced as TWO different meetups: one for the performers--which will have 7 performers slots available (Trying this out -- so we can end at 10pm) and the second meetup which is for an "AUDIENCE" of our meetup members to come out and watch the show and cheer on our fellow performers -- with an unlimited number of RSVPs available for that one, of course.

Once the 7 performers have been solidified --I will email each of you with your time slots and ask that you let me know if there are any NECESSARY required time slot changes, which I will try to accommodate. Also I will need a sound person or two to volunteer for the night, and will probably need extra mics and stands as last time.... so speak up, if you can do either of those. THANKS!

Structure/format "rule": In order to give everyone who has not YET played a chance to perform at this event -- if there are people on the WL who have not yet performed at Miller's, they will get priority over others on the WL. AND -- those who have just performed the previous time, should NOT sign up for the following showcase, but are welcome to sign up as many times as you wish in the future -- just not 2 weeks in a row. I think this seems the best way to make it fair for everyone from the meetup group who wishes to perform at this event to get a chance.

I plan to post 2 showcase events at a time, for each month -- after the last showcase in that month occurred.

Note on timing for the slots: I will try to keep an eye on the 30 minutes, so everyone gets their fair amount of time to perform (but won't always be perfect :-( )-- and I will try to keep everyone's time roughly set to 30 minutes total so we don't go much over 10:30pm at the end -- esp. since this is a week night. There can sometimes be up to 5 minutes of setup time involved, esp. when there is more than one person doing a set -- so I guess it would be good to factor that in, if you are having multiple people perform with you.

    I just wanted to say, once again, what a great job Cathy does with these music showcases. It's a fair amount of work to put it together and I like the format much better than an open mic. One suggestion I made to her is that when she gives out time slots, they have a +/- half an hour to them to help in case things get shifted around. That way you wouldn't get a time stot at 8pm. Your slot would be 7:30-8:30. Yes - your friends wouldn't know exactly when you were going on, but it would make it much easier for Cathy and since Cathy puts the effort in and pays for the group and is generally too nice for her own good...

    See y'all tonight!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
