Showcase (PERFORMERS) Miller's Grille (Lafayette)

NOTE:  This Showcase on 2nd Wed. of Nov (the 13th) but since the 4th Wed. (27th) is the night before Thanksgiving -- I may decide to do the 2nd showcase this month on the 3rd Wed. again: the 20th. Potential performers -- LMK know your thoughts on this ~ Thanks!

SHOWCASE at Millier's Grille Downunder -- This SHOWCASE is announced as TWO different meetups: one for the performers--which will have 5 performers slots available 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 5 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: 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 9:30pm 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

    Hey guys... I left my patch cord at Miller's last night. It's a long one... did anyone happen to grab it? It was fun last night! :)

    Also, just wanted to say a BIG THANKS to Jaka and Valerie (and my kiddos) for accompanying me on stage that night. It was so fun to play and sing with everyone on stage! Gives me more confidence :). And it was amazing having Jaka play bass and harmonica at the same time! -- along with me on that one song. Thanks again everyone for coming out!

    It was a full house and the energy in the room was great! I think that was the biggest crowd ever!

    Sounds like folks pretty much agree that the 20th would be better. I haven't posted that one yet, but will tomorrow or the next day. So keep your eye out for it :)

    We'd like to have two slots, one for Robin and for me/Denise. The 20th probably would work better for us.

      Not sure what you mean? I think I can only do 5 slots per evening, and there are 5 signed up for the 13th already. I'm planning to play, but perhaps I will switch to the 20th (which I haven't posted yet). If I do, there would be another slot.

    I would love to play a slot on the 20th if you decide to change it from Thanksgiving eve. I hope to be able to catch some of the later acts on the 13th too from the audience but I will be late.

    The 13th & 20th work for me!

  • Jaka

    Yay...it's full. Happy. I would play if until the last minute it's not full and no others're available to play.

    Hey Cath, If you change it to the 20th I might not be able to make it (unless I can bring my kids). Let me know what you decide. :)

    I'm trying my hand at this again. I'm currently bribing all available friends and strangers to come out and applaud loudly.

    October 25, 2013

    • Cathy K.

      Yea! Sounds like a great plan! :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
