Hello a cappellists,
There may be groups out there who would like to perform as a cappella features in Boulder, Colorado. For the most part, we have been scheduling groups who are included in a list of CASA and CVJS partners that we know to be capable and audience favorites. That by no means indicates that other active groups out there would not also be welcome. If you have a potential group, here is information currently being distributed among the 20 groups we now contact. If you have interest and feel your group is appropriate for these series, please respond so we can give you fair consideration. These programs are at Redfish Brewhouse on 13th just off the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder:
The "Holiday-time A Cappella" series:
One of 4 nights:
Sundays, December 8 and 15
Wednesdays, December 11 and 18
Format: 2 groups share two 1-hour programs at 7pm and 8:30pm. Work out your own setup and time-sharing arrangements once you have been scheduled. Redfish will provide sound and $100 fees to each group. You may use Redfish mics, your own mics or share those of your partner group. We will attempt to to identify diverse and compatible partners, although you may recommend same. Depending on the "style" developed for each evening, you may perform on the show stage or acoustically in the front dining room. Please state a preference. Obviously, holiday music is the theme, but may be interspersed with novelty and other appropriate selections.
These will be "Redfish Family Nights" that concentrate on a cappella music, all-age audiences (Redfish will carefully card attendees) and the holiday season. So far, two groups have been scheduled, one for each of the Sundays, but the "partners" and other dates are still tentatively open.
The "Bolder A Cappella" series:
We are in the first stages of scheduling a Bolder A Cappella Series for the Winter quarter. Working with the following dates, some preference will be given to first-time participants, but outstanding repeats will also be welcome. The proposed schedule is Tuesdays, January 14 and 28, February 11 and 25, and March 11 and 25. These are also "Redfish Family Nights" that concentrate on a cappella music and all-age audiences (Redfish will carefully card attendees).
Standard fees are $200 with sound, $150 with Redfish sound. Fifty minute shows at 7:30 and 9pm. Please indicate your possible interest.
In fact, come by Redfish on the remaining two evenings in the fall series: November 12 and 19, to hear two great Contemporary A Cappella groups: the relatively new guys' sextet, FACE! and the long-standing Boulder favorite, Cool Shooz. You'll see how warm and generous Boulder audiences can be. No cover, no minimum, good food, good music.
