Please pardon the cross-posting. I am organizing an evening of musical performances during the ACRL Conference in Philadelphia at the end of March. The event will be held in conjunction with a Lyrasis reception, from 8-11 p.m. on Thursday March 31 at a downtown hotel. The performers are going by the name of Marc Fields & Bad Data.
At present we have a solid group of about 12 people lined up to be part of the event, with the ensemble configured in various ways through the evening, starting with acoustic material (folk & bluegrass) in the opening set, and moving through rock, R&B, and other styles (possibly including a few jazz standards) in two additional sets through the evening.
We expect to have a loose (possibly very loose) horn section as part of the R&B set. We are still looking for instrumentalists and singers.
We are holding a rehearsal weekend in the Phila area March 12-13 but if you are reasonable accomplished as a performer and can provide specifics on what you could contribute (including song titles, preferred sample arrangement, and your performance key if you are a singer) we might be able to get you on the set list even if you can't make the rehearsal. At this moment, for our planned firs set, we especially need a penny-whistle player and someone who could play bluegrass / traditional style fiddle. But we're open to anything.
Reply directly to me if your interested in being part of this. it is going to be a blast.
