THIS REGISTRATION PAGE IS ONLY FOR PERFORMERS WHO'VE MADE ARRANGEMENTS WITH A SPECIFIC HOST WHO'S ALREADY REGISTERED.
All you need to do is:
Clear your schedule on October 9 between Noon and 7pm (why?);
Fill out the registration form below;
Get assigned to perform during just one (why?) of our hour-long slots, leaving you plenty of hours to wander, mingle, celebrate music, or hustle off to your next gig.
The logistics of our schedule are ridiculous and we're just a few volunteer shlubs so we trust you'll understand that we can't accommodate special requests. If you can't meet the criteria above and below we'll see you next year.
-Generosity and good will in the form of a freely given, one-hour performance.
-Watch your email for notifications and connect with your porch host in short order after receiving your assignment (assignments expected late September).
-Coordinate with your porch host about the logistics of your performance (i.e. space needed, electricity needs, etc.).
-Bring whatever gear you need for the performance you want to put on. No PA, sound, or other equipment is provided by the event.
-Perform only during your assigned time (including soundcheck).
- Offer a family-friendly/PG-max performance. Seriously, if you can't recognize what's appropriate when you're being hosted in someone's home and there's likely kids running around, this isn't your kinda gig.
-Play at a sound level respectful to the neighbors and/or other performers nearby. Acoustic levels always work but common sense consideration ultimately truimphs. Think of your venue as the space between the house and the curb and adjust for that.
-Get the word out to everyone you know to drop on by.
