See you at Ziggies Live Music (4923 W. 38th Ave, in Denver) on Sunday, June 9th, by 2pm. Please wear your maroon/slacks outfit (No Adam, Jake C, Jake W, or Copland).
Please bring your June dues, and Vets – please bring your final payment #5 (emails with your balances have been sent out).
Vets – Please realize that all late trip payments must be turned in, at the very latest, by Sunday June 29th.
The 4 new band members who will not be present on Sunday, please bring your June dues to Dazzle on Monday.
Vets – Please bring any past due trip payments, if you have not already done so.
On Sunday, a full drum kit is provided, but some drummers prefer to bring their own throne, cymbals, hi-hat, and/or snare drum. Trevor, you’ll need to bring your keyboard. Andrew, a bass amp will be provided.
Tickets: We use Constant Contact’s EventSpot system. Below is a link to the registration page. Students/parents need to go to this page to get your reservations (“registration”) using PayPal. Physical tickets are not required; please DO NOT call Dazzle directly (as this will cause confusion with duplication reservations).
Ticket are $12.50 (pre-show via the link below) and $15 at the door. Obviously, the incentive to get reservations ahead of time is to save $$. We will split the total pre-show ticket sales (after PayPal expenses) with MJO taking the first $400. I will bring you a check to the gig as ticket sales CLOSE Monday afternoon the day of the gig. Please stress to the students/families NOT to wait until the last moment to get their reservations; depending on what is going on the day of the gig, sales may close early in the day.
We can sell approximately (85) seats ahead of time and leave the remaining (10+) for walk-ins and other reservations.
It is very important to use this system vice just coming to pay at the door for a few reasons:
1. It allows Dazzle to plan their staffing.
2. It allows Dazzle to plan the seating, especially for the larger groups that want to sit together.
3. If they just come to the door, it IS possible (and HAS happened) that between the school and non-school reservations, the room is full and they cannot get in!
4. It’s cheaper!
*** Students/Director do NOT need tickets.
All dates and driving directions can be found on the Event Calendar page.
The set order and reference recordings can be found on the Downloads page.
Please work really hard and be ready for Friday’s performance!
