~ Performers ~
-You may send your music in advance by email to (firstname.lastname@example.org), Google drive, We Transfer, or Dropbox. MP3 format only. This DOES NOT guarantee or reserve a spot. You must still arrive to sign in prior to the show starting. *Please have your song labeled by 'song name' and performers name.
- If you plan to perform, you need to arrive and sign up before 8 pm and have your music ready. All music and devices need to be given to the sound guy before the set starts.
- There will only be 8 performance slots available for each set. Once all slots have been filled, the show is full. When you sign up, that will be the order.
- Please be respectful: Solo performers have 4 minutes max and groups 5 minutes max. If your song is longer, the sound guy will fade out your music to end.
- Performance, Music, and costuming must be family friendly. This event is open to the public
- Try to schedule yourself adjacent to someone with a different style to add some variety to the show.
- You can dance to live or recorded music. All dancers dancing to live music will be placed in the 2nd set. All live music will perform prior to any recorded music in the 2nd set. It is preferred to let the band know in advance which song you want to dance to for live music so that it can be included in their set list.
Acceptable Music Formats -(CD, MP3 players, Ipod, Phone)
- CD - Cd's are preferred. Your performance song needs to be the only song on the CD, in Audio format only, and clearly marked. **Always check to make sure your CD works by testing it in your car and your stereo, not only on the computer.
MP3 player/Ipod/Phone: Your song needs to be in a separate folder, easy to access, and ready to play, and at the beginning of our song. If your phone does not have a regular audio jack for a headphone, you must provide a dongle that allows a headphone jack to be plugged in. If it has a password, please add a sticky note with the password so that our sound guy can open it easily. Please remove the phone case. **Phones are NOT the preferred device and often cause issues that delay the show. Please keep this in mind.
- NO STREAMING MUSIC IS ALLOWED. When music is streaming it can cut out because it is buffering and causes a lapse in your music.
- NO Tablets, Ipads, or any other device not listed above.
