LI Musicians Network Presents: APRIL ACOUSTIC FESTIVAL

           

        LI Musicians Network (LIMU) offers a warm invitation
        to all members -- and the general public -- to its
        April Acoustic Festival and mixer at Medley’s
        Restaurant & Lounge in Islip on Saturday, April 26, 1
        p.m. - 5 p.m. )

        LIMU has been drawing a torrent of talent at these
        Festivals.  April embraces that trend.

        (Many thanks for all the kind words on this site about
        the previous Festival.  You can check out video
        highlights from the previous Festival at these links:

                                          Festival-at-a-Glance
                Mark Mamolen & Sarah Azarra    Charley Rich

                              Chameleon     Kenn Withtwoenns)

        The April show will feature four hours of live
        acoustic music from our current members, as well as
        music from newer members who'd like to get
        better acquainted with LIMU.

        Currently, a number of acts are already signed on to
        perform.      

        The event will also be an excellent opportunity for
        members to meet in person -- get to know that
        drummer you've been swapping emails with, meet
        with the singer who's interested in joining your
        band, or simply network with any number of other
        musicians on LIMU who've peaked your interest.

       Cover is $5-at-the-door, which comes with one free
       drink* and free appetizers -- wings and jalapeno
       poppers.

      
       PLAYERS WELCOME

       While the roster of live acoustic entertainment is
       nearly full, there are still a few spots left for
       acoustic music soloists and combos who'd like to
       take the stage at the Festival and play a 15-minute
       set.

       Essentially, it's a perfect opportunity to finely polish
       three or so of your favorite tunes, get up under the
       spotlight, and show your friends, your family and
       your neighbor's Aunt Wilma (you're bringing them all
       along, of course), that you've got it.

       Every soloist or combo will also be introduced on
       stage with their bio and credits, as well info on a Web
       site, Facebook page or similar digital haunt that the
       crowd can visit for more details on where they can see
       you next, how they can book you quick, or where they
       can download your music.

       The festival is being heavily promoted to the general
       public in addition to LIMU members, so performers
       will be sticking to cover tunes from major labels.  (If
       you'd like to sandwich an original tune between the
       covers, that'll work, too.)

       To get on the roster, simply send an email with an
       .MP3 -- or a link to an .MP3 --  recording of you or
       your combo playing the kind of acoustic song you'd
       you'd like to play at the festival, to:
       takethestage (at ) longislandmusiciansnetwork (dot)
       com.  As long as your .MP3 doesn't cause small animals
       to scatter in horror, you're in. 

       (Basic sound recording quality on your .MP3 is fine. If 
       it's something you'd send to a friend with a note like,
       "Hey, check this out," that'll do.)

       (Players also pay a $5-cover-at-the-door, which comes
        with one free drink* and free appetizers -- wings and
        jalapeno poppers.)

        SOME ELECTRONIC INSTRUMENTS WILL WORK

        As long as your electronic instrument is programmed
        to play in acoustic mode, that’ll fit in just fine with
        the spirit of the festival.  If you program your electronic
        keys to sound like a traditional piano (and bring your 
        own amplification), for example, that’ll work.  Ditto for a
        drummer who brings an electronic drum kit with
        amplification – most welcomed.

        The plan is to record the festival in its entirety,
        and post audio/video of a number of individual songs on
        YouTube after the event for everyone to enjoy.  (If
        you’d rather not be recorded at the festival, no problem.   
        Mention that preference when you email in your .MP3.) 

        GETTING THERE
 
        Medley’s Restaurant and Lounge is conveniently
        located at 526 Montauk Highway in Islip, NY
        11741 – a few minutes south of Sunrise Highway.
        Voice:  (631) 650-9500.  There’s plenty of free parking
        in the back.  (For more info, Google, “Medley’s
        Islip Facebook.”)

        QUESTIONS?

        If you need more details, simply post a question
        here on the LIMU Meetup.com site, or zip an email
        to joe (at) longislandmusiciansnetwork.com

        SEE YOU THERE ; )

       ======================================
       *For your free drink, choose from select wines,
       well drinks, draft beer (except Guiness) or a soft
       drink.
