Greetings GreyHaven Community

I hope the new year has begun well for you.  As GreyHaven begins in 2013 there will be a few small changes...

Caleb Chancey, the creator and driving force behind GreyHaven, will be taking a break this year.  His current schedule has precluded him from investing the time into GreyHaven that he knows it needs.

I plan to continue scheduling GreyHaven events but I need some help.  If you'd be interested in playing an ongoing roll in the organization, promotion, or hosting of GreyHaven events, please email me and let me know.

Here are the roles I need filled:
Organizer
- Help schedule events & venues
- Help coordinate the run-throughs
Promoter
- Get info to any outlets possible
Hosting Shows (2 or more people)
- Help set up for shows.
- Take money at the door
- Emcee
- Coordinate set changes
- etc

Questions? Comments?

Thanks,

Corey Scogin

About

Who we are:

Grey Haven is a community of musicians in Birmingham, Alabama, US open to anyone who is interested in making good music with other creative people.

What we do:

Grey Haven hosts a music performance event at a local venue about once a quarter.  At this event, 10 songwriters will perform 2 songs each with other musicians and songwriters in the community.  To be notified about upcoming performances, sign up for our newsletter.

How to get involved:

Sign up for our newsletter and we’ll send you an email prior to upcoming events requesting songwriters and musicians to sign up for that event.  Of those that sign up, 10 songwriters will be chosen to perform 2 of their songs at the next event.  (see guidelines for details)  If you are a musician but not a songwriter, let us know that you want to play and we’ll send your info to the songwriters so that they may contact you if they can use your particular skills.

Caveats:

New songwriters must perform with an existing Grey Haven member.  If you have performed as a songwriter or musician in the past, then you are a Grey Haven member.

Guidelines:

Grey Haven is about community and collaboration between musical artists in the Birmingham area.  To this end there are some guidelines for participation in Grey Haven events:
  • Every song must include musicians outside of the songwriter's usual band.  This is to promote collaboration and keep Grey Haven from becoming a showcase of bands.
  • Every song must also include more than one performer.  At least three performers are recommended for each song performance. This is to keep Grey Haven from becoming a showcase of solo singer/songwriters.

Misc:

  • Almost every performance is recorded and posted on the website.  By signing up to perform, you give permission to record and post your portion of the performance.
  • There is usually a run-through on Monday evening before a show.  This run-through is mandatory for all performers.
