I hope everyone is having a great summer. To make it even better we are welcoming back Steve Poltz for (I believe) his 6thperformance at Patchwork. Last time he played here he was up on the furniture singing a new song about the Higgs-Bozon particle! We’ve seen Steve perform at least a dozen times and no two shows are alike. So whether you have seen Steve perform in the past or not, you haven’t been to this show:
STEVE POLTZ – Saturday, August 17 @ 8 pm, $20 per person
RSVP** by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by calling 434-8355. It helps us to plan (for chairs, brownies, etc.).
Shows are BYOB. Snacks and non-alcoholic beverages will be available. You are welcome to bring a shareable snack but only if you wish. All that is required is cash for the show (plus maybe a little extra to buy some artist’s merch) and a desire to listen to the music. Directions and reminders will follow to those who reserve a chair or two.
Monique & George
Patchwork House Concerts, First Ave., Bedford
**When you commit to attending, your seat is reserved for you (or for an alternate if you can’t make it at the last minute). The artist(s) counts on the number of people who have committed, and so do we to keep our house as a good and reliable venue to continue to bring fantastic musicians to you in such an intimate setting. In short: if you say you’re coming, please do so. Thanks
*A Patchwork House Concert is a special experience. It’s a chance to really listen to live music by great Canadian and international artists in a relaxed, intimate atmosphere. It’s kind of like having your favorite artists play in your living room. Heck, that’s exactly what it is!
Shows generally start early (at 8 pm) so we begin welcoming guests around 7:30pm to allow everyone time to get a soft drink (or if you have brought your own, something stronger), grab a snack, find a seat and get comfortable.
Usually we have 2 sets with a break in between for enjoying some refreshments, socializing, and maybe having a chat with one of the artists. CDs and other musician merchandise are often available for purchase so it is wise to bring a little extra cash to pick up a cd or two for your music collection. At the break, we also collect money for the show. All the proceeds go to the performers.
Why do we do this? Well, we like listening to live music in small spaces. We like the little bit of extra chaos this brings to our lives. We like the fact that we are supporting hard-working musicians. We like seeing old friends and meeting new people. We hope to see you soon!
