A place to play: “Summer Concerts at Hiawatha” seeking musicians

(8/6/09 photo from Summer Concerts @ Hiawatha: Neil Young tribute band Ragged Glory)
Presented for the first time last year, the Admiral Neighborhood Association‘s Summer Concerts at Hiawatha were an instant hit. Planning for this year’s Thursday night outdoor-concert series (7/29-9/2) is now under way, and ANA president Katy Walum has put out the call for musicians. If you’re interested, e-mail her at katy.walum@gmail.com; she adds, ” It helps if they include their fee for a 90-minute performance (with a short break in the middle, if desired), and any special setup or sound requirements.” (The series also is still seeking sponsors – WSB is already signed up for the second consecutive year – e-mail Dave Weitzel at dave@weitzelconstruction.com.)

    As a Hiawatha neighbor, my “sound requirement” would be less volume please. I applaud the organizers’ efforts in producing this concert series, but is it necessary to flood the entire neighborhood with such volume when the audience is seated within 75 feet of the stage? Please keep the neighbors in mind during your planning so that we will continue to support Concerts at Hiawatha. :-)

    Actually, I thought they did a great job last year with the sound. I live a block away and loved to be able to sit out and listen. They did keep to a strict 8pm music off policy.

Sorry, comment time is over.
