SG Musicians Meetup at Clarke Quay! Thursday music sharing - 24 Feb 11

Credit Information from Jerry (Organiser of The Singapore Singers & Songwriters Meetup Group)

When:
Thursday, February 24, 2011 7:30 PM
Where:
Players Bar Lounge - 29 Carpenter Street, Games Haven, S059923 Singapore

Hi all!
Our last meetup was last year in November'10 which was held at Orchard Central, I must say it's been 3 long months since we last had this musician meetup! Thanks for the many messages sent and we have now found a new venue sponsor.
This time round it will be hold in a cosy bar pub lounge at Clarke Quay area. It is an acoustic setup and you will be able to freely perform, showcase your talent on a mini stage (it is really small, no stage fright yea). Do bring your own guitars, keyboards and other instruments you might have. Here are some of the features and lineup:
7.15pm - 7.30pm

Registration to play is on a first come first serve basis. You must register here first: https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dHQzUjI2ZGFBQVNqdWpJVDRsT01qeFE6MQ
This is free, no charges involved

7.30pm - 8.00pm

Say "Hello!" to one another. Mingling session, get to know each other on the ground and make friends. You can interact and possibly even find like-minded music friends to jam together. Time to socialise!

8.00pm - 9.30pm

Music sharing session time. Each group or individual will be allowed to perform 3 songs in this first round.
Here are some special incentives for those who wish to perform:

I will encourage you to dress well if you like us to help you take a video. It will be a free portfolio for your future usage to showcase for other events or performance opportunities.
As a talent scout for music performers, you will be featured in this NEW segment under "Featured Musician" on http://www.expressinmusic.com/home/musicianprofile.aspx. You will get the chance to be marketed for opportunities in the music event gig arena. I just set this page up, more will be coming up within the next 3 weeks.
A surprise prize money $ will be awarded to 1-3 musicians who perform either exceptionally well or simply bring in friends/fans to rally like a concert. The cash prize is awarded on the spot.
9.30pm - 10.30pm

Contractual paid performance. Our friends at the Players Bar have agreed to give this performance showcase an added value. Besides him, there will be another fellow entertainment outlet manager who will scout for good musicians, excellent performers. Based on your performance in the 8.00pm-9.30pm slot, if you are chosen to perform between 9.30pm-10.30pm, you may be considered for a paid 'live' gig on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Alternatively, between this slot, we will also like to encourage a merge of friendship among the attendees. Jam together on stage, perform with strangers (after that you will be friends). This could be really interesting!


I been there twice only. The venue is not very big (but really cosy with nice ambience!), therefore there is limited space for RSVP. Once the RSVP numbers are reached, we will cease registration. As it is with courtesy of getting the venue sponsor at a pub to open up the space to us, if you can kindly show your appreciation by getting at least a drink, this will be a nice gesture too.
If you have your own EP or CD or original songs to market, feel free to share! It is a simple gathering for musicians and music lovers to network with one another through music.
Come on down and play, share your music!
Cheers!
Jerry
