Band Registrations close on Friday, and we can all catch our breath.. except the Curtis who will crank out the first draft of the playing schedule this weekend. Yet another Committee meeting to finalise the venues (we need around 160 sessions all up)
Apparently ticket sales are already going well, which seems a bit strange as we had sold about three by this time last year. Our cunning Box Office wallahs are devising a system whereby people with pre-purchased tcikets will get the express lane treatment at the Box Office.
A number of regular jammers have indicated they will be happy to volunteer for Box Office, Minibus, Door Manager and Sales Manager slots at the Festival … but nowhere near enough. Just drop us an e-mail or let us know at the Jam Sessions if you can do this – it involves a couple of sessions plus a free weekend pass.
As a regular Jammer, if you would like to be involved, you can start now by visiting the website ( http://castlemainejazzfestival.com.au/ ) and pasting a link to your own Facebook page – go on, we know you’ve got one – we will be using Radio and Print Media advertising, but your input on social media is the most effective marketing of all.
If you can get some posters (A3 or A4) and flyers (A5) put up in your local Newsagents, Laundrette, Library, Remand Centre, School or University, drop us a line and we will get some sent out to you. E-mail your contact details to:
More Bands, more musos
