Strings Attached to Discontinue Donation Based Shows April 30th Unless…
Do you Love Strings Attached, Strings on Grass, and Will’s Dance Night?
Listen to this post here.
We do too and have enjoyed the last 18 years, but we’ve need more patron sustainers or business sponsors to be able to continue bringing [Strings Attached] shows that feature new arrangements, amazing local artists and cool classic rock re-imaginings to you week after week and year after year.
Unfortunately, the devaluation of live, recorded music and the saturation of the market, even right here in Austin, the supposed “Live Music Capital of the World”, and the demands and time involved in producing a high caliber world class experience each week have made the weekly residency UNSUSTAINABLE without patron support. Ways you can help. (Most of the at no cost)
We have set a goal of 200 patron sustainers by April 30, 2017, in order to continue.
Go here to help us….
Special Thanks the Patrons that have already joined us here:
Holly & Larry K, Dave Marshall, Don Traylor, Holley M, Vickie Flaugher , Holley , Oscar Madera , Howieee Zow , Charles Paulsen , Melita Noel , Robert a Richey , Kathleen Clark , Martha Norwood , Cindy Goldman , Susan T. , Tammi , Margaret , Barbara Roeling , and Rachel Trudell, and Elaine Christine.
We truly want to continue the work we love: shining the spotlight on the talent right here Austin with high quality rehearsed shows every week with folks like David Grissom, Redd Volkaert, Guy Forsyth and more, producing moving themed shows, all on a donation basis, helping local college students learn about music production through our internship program, visiting folks in need, broadcasting and archiving the live shows for the world to tune in and discover/enjoy, and composing new original music and arrangements. To do this we need your help! See here what to do…
If we are short of our goal, I will discontinue all donation-based public concerts, but will continue the patron-only quarterly house concerts.
Here are some amazing things we’re planning to do this year with your support.. You can be a part of it and help make it happen!
See here.. Music of Steely Dan, Zeppelin Tribute, Music of the Police, more outreach concerts to the elderly and hospice care folks, more local features with folks like Jon Dee Graham, Warren Hood, and your suggestions taken here.
We want to continue the work we love bringing to Austin and have done Since 2001, but we need your help by April 30, 2017.
