THE FOUR LEVELS OF ENGAGEMENT
1. HOUSE PARTIES with a live music performance of 3-4 musicians are used to connect the nonprofit with smaller more intimate audiences. The low cost and risk of house parties makes them especially appealing to first-time Band Central nonprofits and/or small nonprofits.
2. APPEARANCES at pre-existing events, such as donor appreciation gatherings, are a good way to experience working with Band Central. A Band Central appearance is a cost effective way to meaningfully enhance the value and draw of the nonprofits event.
3. PUBLIC CONCERTS involve renting a venue and selecting a music theme such as: Motown Revue, A Night At Studio 54, Latin Dance Party, Arena Rock, Classic Rock, Country, 1990’s Party, Beach Party, British Invasion Rock, Rock & Soul and Acoustic Rock. Public concerts with Band Central can significantly increase revenue while maintaining a relatively low-cost profile.
4. FEATURED CONCERTS involve using Band Central’s extensive music industry contacts to book a named artist with an audience draw to attract existing and new donors to learn about the non-profit. These events have a higher cost structure and therefore more opportunity. Former featured artists include The Temptations, Ronnie Spector and John Oates of Hall & Oates.
