Music Fest 2013

0

Hello Creeps.

It’s crunch time! With only two days left to get everything secured and in order, we have to work really hard. Saturday is the day of the music festival! The fundraiser is going to raise funds for The Igloo Parlor. All proceeds go to opening the establishment. Right now we need to do the following:

  • Find Tents for our refreshment table & PA System
  • Get tables ready
  • Finalize workers of the event
  • Get donation boxes

After all this we will see all of our hard work come into play. I can’t wait and hope for a smooth and fun fundraiser.

Music Festival Update

Creeps,

June first is creeping up upon us and I’m hoping that the weather man is incorrect about the weather on that day. 85 degrees with a chance of mild thunderstorms. That would piss me off after all this hard work has been done and we’d have to switch stuff. NO!

I might want to check with the adult center to see if they’ll be our indoor venue just in case. Other than that, I have no idea. The high school would be alright, but looks poor considering its a fundraiser for a local business.

We’ve had an act cancel on us, so we have 2 more band slots available and time working against us! Other than that, bands are all secured. I have to rush Saturday morning to pick up my PA system and rush to the venue.

This is going to be an interesting Saturday and I’m very frustrated at this point because I still haven’t heard from the group that’s supposed to be doing the bake sale table! It’s quite irritating when everything comes down to this one day. One chance at a first impression.

On a great note, my festival is being advertised on BIC: http://www.bicproductions.com/

I appreciate their time in advertising for us! It’s an honor.

I have gotten a lot more confident than I ever was during this whole endeavor. Now, it’s crunch time to take those daydreams into a reality.

I’m pretty happy with how this festival came about and all the struggles with it. It shows that I can tackle the worst situations and become better at what I do! Life is a learning experience!

What I’m looking forward to – not only the festival and the opening of my ice cream shop – but also getting back into music myself! I’ve been saying this for a long time, but this time it’s going to happen!

I’ve already gotten back into doing my vocal warm up practices. I’d really like to get my hands on a bass again and do keyboards again.

Inspirations are all around me. I’ve been working hard for two damn years to create a better life for myself, my boyfriend, and my family. I’d love to see it pay off.

I’m also going to get back into doing the film and album reviews once a week on this blog after the festival. Unsuccessful Entertainment will be back doing videos after the festival as well.

We appreciate all the new follows and subscribers! Thanks for Creepin’!

Hello Creeps! Here’s an update on my music fest fundraiser. We are currently working on some merchandise while we wait to hear our confirmation from the venues. The artwork above has the cheese factor of every D.I.Y. person and was created by my love.

Me and my love, Will – We’re the founders of this festival that we want to have twice a year. We have locations in Northern and Central New York.

We have a facebook “like” page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dissident-Overdrive-Music-Festival/444357902319781

So… here i am… raising funds for my business, attracting investors, and working ever so hard on accomplishing my goals. Funny thing is, my dad has no idea I’m putting this fundraiser together. I wanted to have everything set in stone before we present it to him.

I took charge, and I deliver.

Music Fest Fundraiser?

0

With the clock ticking and me waiting to hear back from potential investors — I can’t just sit around and not try to raise funds for the family business. My boyfriend, Brother, and I are all three musicians and have put our creativity to work. We’re thinking of hosting a Music Fest to raise funds and promote the ice cream shop and utilize the Unsuccessful Entertainment Youtube channel as our way to promote other performers that will be playing. The Fundraiser won’t only help the ice cream parlor, but our youtube channel will be used to help promote fellow musicians, artists, photographers, etc in the area and get recognition.

I will have to think fast and correct when coming up with this fundraiser. My investors are on a stand-still looking over the information I had forwarded over to them. So, I have to act now and get things in order. The problem is, I only have $30 to create this shin-dig. Unless, partial of the funds raised goes towards the venue.

I’m thinking of hosting this as an outside event. So people from 13 and Up can come see bands play and enjoy a meal of hot dogs and ice cream. I do have contacts with my old high school that maybe willing to help me put this all together. In order to get this started, I would need to make a Facebook like page for the Igloo Parlor and spread it around rapidly to gain attention.

Not only am I doing the fundraiser in person, but I am going to re-vamp my GoFundMe for those quite a distance away to put inside the donation pool. This will also be advertised everywhere. I am very goal driven and stubborn, and this will be accomplished.

If you guys have any tips for me to accomplish my fundraising goal – don’t be shy! Share them!
