This is a POTLUCK DINNER, ELECTION and PERFORMANCE festivity that cannot be missed!
And we will once again follow the New Format.
We now have approximately 8 HOOTS and 8-10 Song Circles per month, depending on whether it's an odd or even month or if there's a 5th Saturday, so if you can't get to all of them, this is the festivity to attend. Come and meet all those wonderful people who open their homes for us to make beautiful music, and meet and hear some folks that only go to hoots and song circle’s that you don't attend.
In 2011 we implemented the new Roundup format! It is now a Super Hoot and Potluck Dinner," complete with a fabulous jamming afterglow party.
The format will be very similar to the Saturday Night Concerts held at the various campouts. There will be a sign-up sheet with slots for audience participation/group songs, and more opportunities for everyone to participate in the event.
Performers may be an individual or a group. The sign-up sheet will request your name(s), the song, which Hoot(s) you attend and every 4th entry on the sign-up list will be a group/audience participation song. Participants may sign up one time with one song. Then, after everyone signs up, if there are vacant spaces, you may sign up for a second turn.
We'll be using condenser 'area' microphones rather than individual ones, reducing setup time so we can have more performances.
All performers must wear nametags showing that their memberships are valid at least through 2012. You may pay your dues at the Roundup if you haven't already sent them in by then.
Additionally, we'll have tables for musical items you may wish to sell - including instruments, CD's,
music books, and records.
Please provide your own signs.
Most importantly, we will conduct the Songmaker Board of Directors Elections for 2013 to select the wonderful folks who donate their time and energy to make all our events so much fun and successful.
If you have any questions, please call Patty Quintana or e-mail email@example.com.
As usual, the Songmakers' board will provide dessert, and beverages for the event.
BRING ENOUGH FOOD FOR 10 - 12 PEOPLE, main courses, side dishes, veggies, etc. in disposable containers if possible.
In addition to the great entertainment, there will also be a table where you can buy, sell, trade, donate,
give away any and all music related items, i.e. instruments, sheet music, kazoos, etc.
