RE: Seeking local co-sponsors/parners, or patron for “Acoustic Guitar Spectacular”
In 2012, I invited Australian guitarists Nick Charles, Robbie Long, and young Italian virtuoso Andrea Valeri to participate in a series of concerts to be marketed as: “Acoustic Guitar Spectacular” and the tour will take place in May & June, 2012.
The concerts run for two & a half hours, with each player featuring as a soloist in the first half, and all players sharing the stage in the second half. Here is a summary of the 2012 dates...
May 25 Wollongong Centro CBD
May 26 Sydney B!G Music (plus afternoon workshop, presented & filmed by Guitarist Australia Magazine)
May 27 Green Point (Central Coast) Kantara House
May 28 (travel)
May 29 Brisbane City Mall
May 30 Sunshine Coast Majestic Theatre
May 31 Newcastle Lizottes
June 1 Ipswich civic centre (+ Brisbane city mall)
June 2 Gold Coast Arts Centre
June 3 Petrie Pioneer Village
June 4 Bald Hills (Brisbane) St Pauls school (workshop with Andrea Valeri)
Sponsors or partners are sought to help offset travel costs, venue hire, Visa & marketing costs. In-kind donations are welcome; particularly design & printing, media, and accommodation.
What's in it for you? On offer is the opportunity to have your brand attached to a unique and classy music event featuring highly esteemed & respected guitarists, and including an international 'future star'.
Sponsor branding will be included on all press and publicity materials including posters, flyers, social networking, web advertising, email list. Sponsors will be invited to place banners at concerts, and will receive public acknowledgement. Any other involvement at concerts is open to discussion. Free tickets will be made available to key personnel in the sponsors organisation, subject to individual venue guidelines.
In addition, exclusive photos & interviews with the artists will be possible, and signed copies of artist CDs will be given to sponsors.
It is hoped that this will become an annual event, giving local audiences the opportunity to see high-calibre international artists perform. Currently limited to NSW & Qld, with assistance, this event has the potential to go national.
