So, with #SpeedIdeation having left this site I guess it’s about time to do some more thinking on this project.
I’ve chatted with a couple of befriended musicians and got really positive feedback and also some initial volunteers; not enough yet though – need to e.g contact #GlobalJam members and a real lot of other bands to reach what I lay out as my new goal now:
#1 One-Gig-Band should actually be a big event, with a big bunch of musicians coming together for a 1 or 2-day concert
#2 While I’d hope a lot of bands join in, this should not be a festival with a row of bands playing, but rather a continuously changing mix of musicians from different bands performing together
#3 This will be a benefit event – no money to be made; all income above costs will be donated to charity
I am still targeting to set this up for late next year, so I’ll need a real lot of help; this is not my profession but just an idea I would love to come to life.
Please let me have your thoughts, let me know if you’d like to support, perform on stage or contribute in any other fashion.
