There are a few simple rules to follow at the Walk Up concerts.

Everyone is welcome to attend and participate.  It is about having fun and entertaining the audience.

If you want to perform you need to get your name on the whiteboard near the stage and be ready to go when you name is called, ie all the members are assembled and tuned up.

Rules:

  • Each 'act' gets to do three songs with a maximum performance time including set up of 15 minutes.

  • If you have more than one singer then you still only get three songs

  • When your three songs are done you must vacate the stage quickly and allow the next 'act' to set up

  • 'Acts' with more than three singers can perform again once all other 'acts' have completed their walk up performance

Please note that non members are only permitted to perform twice in each calendar year.  Members are not limited. 

REMEMBER the 4 simple guidelines if you wish to perform:

1) Get there before 1:30pm to get your name on the whiteboard. We want everyone to have a fair go.

2) Make sure your instruments are tuned, if it has a battery in it, make sure it's not flat !, and that you have any music charts available if you might end up having backing muso's playing ... (Sochsie and Mike Morrissey are general available to help out playing). This will save on wasted time and we want everyone to have a fair go.

3) Be ready to go on stage BEFORE it's your turn. Your performance time includes set up and getting off stage. The longer you take, the less time you have. The MC or stage manager shouldn't have to chase you. We want everyone to have a fair go.

4) Please consider that if you are part of a duo/trio you might want to restrict your performance to that group. If the number of performers is low, perhaps then discuss with Jeremy (the President) or Bev (all round nice person coordinating the Whiteboard) whether you can do a solo performance as well. We want everyone to have a fair go.

 

Anyway, the point is to have fun, but at the same time we want to entertain those who have come along to watch. Not every member is a performer. Please keep that in mind.
