The Manager of the Holiday Inn Lounge has agreed to let me use the lounge for a meet and greet to introduce the public to new upcomming artist.In my area we only have 2 events and when someone is bold to have a show people don't support it because they claim they have no knowledge of the artist. Sometimes when you want to do something different you feel like the president pushing his healt care bill. We only get's one chance and I need you guys expert advice on how to make it a success, The hotel gas agreeded to furnish the rooms and a percenrage of the bar to pay for traveling. The artist only needs to bring their tracks and products they wish to sell and if it goes well this could become a model for other hotels that have lounges who do not charge cover charges. So give me your input I will appreciate it.

Sister, it sounds like you are on top of your game--although I am new to promotions. But, I would say, you have the groundwork laid out. I would say keep promoting. Get some organization,group, to support the event, have it as part of their monthly planned activities. You might give a certain percentage to a cause. In my experience, older crowds seem to support more when the proceeds are linked to a charity. I hope you will let us know how it turned out.
Love,
Dr. E
Thank you for this very healthful information which i plan to use. Again thank you Much love

thank you for responding and I will tune in to your page to listen.
1.select from your top 10 artist on your show to start, make damm sure there only 2 hrs away from the next show or home.
2.start a month in advance in your promotions an give invites of 2 twice an hour on your show(check with your PD first (smile).
ask the hotel or find a sponsor who can post your event on cups and ink pens. Don't get discourged if the first one don't work as well.
3.your gonna need food. So take all this into consideration and get busy.

P.S. If you do well I want my 10% (smile)
Thank you and after yje justblues award I will start planning and dont forget I am grateful for your advice. Loce ya and remember we all in this together tp [romte southern soul.
please excuse the typos I never said i was typist and I dont know how to edit yet
Joyce, first of all let me commend you for all your effort you are puttin in your vision which many of us share. Where are you located so i can generate word of mouth and pass the information.
I live in Decatur Alabama and it is a relative small town. I received some advice from Dr. E that stated to get the community involved and I am getting ready to meet with the black golfer association to be our first host for this meet and greet. I appreciate every one advice and believe me I'm using it. My station manager is happy to support this idea and after I meet with the hotel manager I will be talking to her for her to promotes the event. I need 3 to 4 weeks to fine tune this idea. Again thank you all for your input.
