Call for Submissions 2019

Hello everyone.

Submissions can be mailed or dropped off between March 4th and 29th . If you have any difficulty with getting in a physical demo package, let me know. The address is below. Late submissions will not be considered. All are welcome, but space is limited.

What I need:

  • a statement of interest in playing the park and introducing the band
  • a recording on vinyl, cassette, or cd (home burns are perfect, just test them before mailing to ensure the music is there)
  • contact information
  • as always, be as creative as you want to be in your submission; this isn’t a typical venue so we are fortunate to be able to allow bands to move away from the standard press kit and be more personal in their introduction.

Fort Reno Concerts
c/o Amanda MacKaye
645 S. Florida Street
Arlington, VA 22204

Shows will be happening in July and the goal is eight shows but fundraising will be a factor. As always, they will be on Mondays and Thursdays, with music from 7 to 9:30 PM but the park is open for folks to be present for the pre-show festivities which will include cleaning the park and loading gear; the perfect backdrop for your dining experience.

The concert series is run completely on donations which go to the permit, security, sound and various required materials. Please consider donating for this summer and summer days in the coming years. Part of the mission of the concert series is to keep it about the music and the players by way of keeping it commercial free and only “brought to you by the people who love it”.

Checks made payable to Amanda MacKaye/Fort Reno Concerts can be mailed to the address above. We also have PayPal.

Sincerely,
Amanda
