you again for being part of our New Year's Eve celebration in Sandwich
Village! I hope you have been enjoying the holidays. I wanted to remind
you of some last-minute details regarding the event Sunday afternoon and
We have no alternate date. According to current forecasts, it looks
like there may be some snow on the ground, and it will be chilly. So
plan ahead and travel safe!
Now's the time to share the website link with your friends and mailing
lists, encouraging them to come and to purchase a button in order to see
- thanks for your help in promoting First Night Sandwich!
When you arrive that day, you should head to your venue first to sign
in and pick up your buttons -- even if you're not performing for a
while. Ask for the volunteer who will be at the venue -- they'll have
your buttons and any additional information you might need.
you need to unload your equipment, you can do so at your venue quickly
but then find a legal parking spot please. If a road happens to be
closed in preparation for the parade, just let the police there at the
barricade know that you're a performer and need to get through to your
venue. So again, please plan ahead to allow time to get situated.
We do not provide sound systems for performers unless it happens to
already be part of the venue so please plan on just an electrical outlet
and your own equipment unless you've made special arrangements to share
with someone else.
When it's time for your performance, you should arrive 25-30 minutes
ahead of time at the venue ready to go. At about 15-20 minutes before
your performance time, the prior act will finish up, unplug and gather
up their equipment, allowing you time to prepare your stage. Please
offer the same courtesy in terms of finishing up your performance with
15-20 minutes to spare before the next act goes on. This also allows
time for the audience to move to their next show.
The volunteers at the venues are there to help make things go smoothly
(particularly traffic flow) so if you have issues or questions, let them
know and they will do their best, including any change-up with chairs,
etc. Others, including myself, will try to circulate continuously
through all the venues.
If you have any questions or concerns this week or the day of the
event, please do not hesitate to call me on my cell phone and I will try
to get back to you as soon as possible: 508-989-4218. What am I
You are awesome! Thanks for making this so memorable!
