Call for Entry for Sea to Sky working musicians and bands: HEAR and NOW 2019

Arts Whistler is producing Hear and Now: Whistler’s Local Music Celebration outdoors in Village Square on Sept.21 and 22, 2019. Hear and Now was initially made possible with funding from government grants and Arts Whistler now directly funds the event as we are committed to investing in and showcasing local talent. 

HEAR and NOW Event Dates: Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 22, 2019

Where:  Village Square, Whistler 

Programming/Selection:

Hear and Now 2019 has slots for up to 16 bands and/or solo acts. In order to provide opportunities for more musicians, any bands that have played the last two consecutive years will be put on a wait list and preference will be given to bands that haven’t played the event yet, or who haven’t play the past two years. The following bands have played the event in both 2017 and 2018:

·         Spiritual Warrior
·         Blame the Weekend
·         Bad Habit
·         Emily Molloy
·         Small Town Runaway
·         Lozen and the Get Down Brothers

If musicians in the above bands are in other bands, please feel free to apply with a band that isn’t on the “two-years in a row” list.

 

Artist Fees/Membership:

In order to meet our modest budget, we need to continue our policy of paying every musician $100 per 40-minute set. If you have a four-piece band, that band will earn $400. If you are a musician in two bands, you will personally earn $200, etc.  This is an excellent showcase for the local music sector and we appreciate you working with us to make it happen. As Arts Whistler is now directly funding this program, we need AT LEAST ONE MEMBER of every band to be a member of Arts Whistler. Membership is $30/year for an individual membership.
