Interesting in hosting a Show?
Music for a Warming World is available for a range of events:
music festivals / university symposium conferences / folk clubs
house concerts / faith communities
art galleries / community events
climate action groups / schools ...
(We have done all these and more ...)
Where we perform
The show is not like a regular gig; it is a 'themed concert', with a beginning, a middle and an end.
Running time is up to 75 minutes depending on the event. If the venue/audience size allows, we like to have a post concert conversation with the audience.
Music Festivals: it make a unique eco-music contribution to a music festival and has been performed at a number of music festivals. .
House Concerts: an excellent way to entertain your friends and family and have a conversation around climate change. A house concert is literally a concert in your home, with the band and those family, friends and neighbors you wish to invite.
Concert Venues: the show can be organised in a public venue to provide great music and to engage the community in a conversation about climate change, such as a professional group, community or special interest group.
Conferences and Seminars: the concert can be held as part of a conference or seminar where there is interest in exploring environmental issues, personal well-being in the face of uncertainty and/or connections between art, activism and science.
Churches and faith communities: this show has been performed in a number of churches and multi-faith communities and is a great way to raise interest in climate justice and social engagement.
Community Events: we have played for a wide range of interested community groups, including climate action groups
Schools: this concert can be annotated and provide an engaging dialogue with students.
We do not have a fixed charge.
We prefer to discuss the model that would best work for your situation. Music for a Warming World is not a commercial venture, but we do need to recover our costs at a minimum. These include our travel, meals and accommodation (where relevant) and an honorarium for the musicians for their time. Some of our team are full-time professional musicians and therefore we want to honour their skill and commitment. Normally the costs would be covered by a cover charge/donation to see the show.
We want to make the show as widely available as possible, and ensure it is sustainable for us to be able to do so.
Where possible, we also like to recover some of the considerable investment we have put into the show (sound system, lighting, projection system, images banks, website etc), that would be a bonus.
Good promotion for a show is very important and we will provide photos, images and web-links that will help with this.
Please ask us for images if you wish to advertise or promote the show. There are a number of images found in cyberspace that are of old versions of the band and we take seriously the way the project is promoted.
We ask that if the images or text are to be changed in any way, that you consult with us before it gets finalised.
Music for a Warming world uses BOTH music and visuals.
It is highly entertaining but is not designed for a pub type venue. Rather is is a listening/participating concert.
Because it uses large scale visuals we prefer a darkened venue where the projection screen can be a central part of the performance.
This show uses:
1) Large widescreen projection screen and projector
2) A sound system suitable for the band
3) Lighting to illuminate the band but not the projection screen
4) A venue that can be made reasonably dark
It is easiest to discuss the type of venue with us so we can work out how to make it work.
We can supply large portable projection screen, projector, sound gear and lights for smaller venues or house concerts where needed, but if we have to travel a long distance for a series of shows, then the organiser may need to arrange for these.
Stage plans available.
