I am starting to see more of these, e.g.:
( --- above, is EXAMPLE ONLY... seems like a nice crowd, but not about that link, read below... )
However, while they say North Jersey, "Morristown" is borderline "Central" NJ too. Yet, is not. They're mountain folks and we are flat landers ... anyway...
So, rather then "copy" or detract, wondered if could **augment (eventually to them, their venue), but from, ---- in my area specifically, organised first, ---- with a "5-days" in hot August, 7:30 p - 9:30 p, since acoustic and on semi-rural, private land... 10 p could be doable... who wants to stay up late on a week night anyway.
But, not sure of the many "to-do's"... (not an idiot or stupid kid here, --blunt)... **but, seeking the council of many... anyway...
--- My specific location has so much musical talent, it's disgusting.
However, **more disgusting is that they just can NOT, seem to get together, easily. Unsure of why.
I know, if it makes the 6 o'clock news... many of my "almost famous" friends, then will be a calling, --but, not what I am seeking (another venue for their stuff anyway, primarily, others-first this time ...). Rather, pure "CBGB", original only, but of a Folk, Folk-rock, Christian-fork, R&B, Spiritual (acapella even, in the field spiritual -chants, prayers, Rap, even), ... of that skew-nature... gathering in the Piscataway, New Brunswick, Dunellen, Bridgewater, Manville -- Central, New Jersey area. (Dead center to that and, like 30 min south of the Morristown crowd, -- long, far, by NJ standard, hahhh... :~)
I've got a Venue on a quiet road, off of Rt 22 East/West, a major road, loops back too... ~3+ acre field, with an old elementary-school connected to Chapel building, guessing roughly 4K sq feet (meaning bathrooms in basement, etc.) However, no, -- no AC... --just fling open the Front doors that face the Road, add a modest 300 Watt PA (prior to 9 pm) with, industrial fan at top of the steps, and vwah laugh, ~~ "Dog days of summer - hot August nights, Original Music Festival" central NJ ... ? :~) ... like Friday to Sunday 7:30p - 9:30p as I said, or even Wed - Sun with big BYOFD Pic nic... -- It's a poor church in a wealthy area... but, know they/we can handle the electric bill for "that", --no summer Bible Study for kids this year -- no kids... . So, the legistics are minimal for that, other than, why I post...
- Worth attempting?
- Council of many say what?
- Take donations... if even $1 per, would cover the light bill, if got to 50, 100? even?
- What am I missing?
- Bad idea?
- Good idea, but, doomed to fail, because....?
I know I could just show up, and sit there with the doors open and play to the road... (barring my carpel tunnel issues lately...) ... why couldn't 100 new friends show up, too?
---- Anyway, just thinking... probably should just keep it to myself, but had some time today and have not been able to write much, so it, creativity seems to ooze out other ways that I an't seem to stop it.
