It’s time. With the foot of snow that just fell, it seems like the perfect time to set our sights summer 2014…so if you are interested in playing the concert series speak up in the next several weeks or wait until next year.
Demo packages will be accepted for consideration from Monday February 24th until Monday March 31st. That’s five weeks. Late entries will not be considered for shows.
Please mail your submissions to:
Fort Reno Concert Series
3819 Beecher Street NW
Washington, DC 20007
Here are the submission guidelines:
The Fort Reno summer concert series is not part of the music "industry". Introduce your band and music in a way that is creatively comfortable for you and expresses who you are and why you want to play the big red stage.
We don't need press information or pictures (unless you want to draw something for the refrigerator gallery); lists of shows or bands you've played with.
Include the URL for your web presence if you have that (its fine if you don’t), so there is no need to print out that material.
Revel in the moment that you/your band can be more than a neat & tidy folder with papers in it. Just don’t forget to include your name and contact information.
We still ask for physical music demos...cd, tape, vinyl. Homemade copies are perfectly acceptable, but please provide more than one song. We don't book cover bands and ask that bands not play cover songs in their set. We don't accept EPK's.
The concert series strives to encourage kids to start bands and participate rather than just watch and consume, so please tell us the ages of your band members. We are dedicated to supporting the music life of Washington, DC. Only artists from this area are eligible for consideration. Currently that is defined as within the Capital Beltway. All music styles are encouraged and welcome, however from year to year the aim of the series may change and that can drive selections.
If you have any questions, just ask.
