Organizing A Concert For Charity

Posted on

 

If you are passionate about a cause and you want to raise awareness for the cause as well as earn some money for the cause or charity, one of the best things that you can consider doing is to host an event where all of the proceeds go directly to your charity or cause. While this may seem simple enough, it does involve a lot of work in terms of event organizing however if done right you will be likely to have a lot of patronage and therefore bring in a lot of money to charity. Similarly you will find that your event itself will attract many people because it says on all advertisements that the money is going directly to charity. Therefore even a person who has never donated to charity in their life will feel good about themselves for attending your event even if their only intention is to experience the event.

Pick a charity and choose an event

The first thing you will need to do is to pick a charity that you will want all of the donations going toward. There would be a hundred causes and charities that you can choose from however it is advisable for you to choose the one that is closest to your heart because this will serve as incentive for you to give your hundred percent best into organizing the event. Once you have picked the charity you will then want to think of what sort of event you would like to have. One of the most popular types of charity events around is a concert or a stage play that is popular among the younger generation. Alternatively you could organize a tribute show of one of the most popular oldies bands such as the Beatles or Abba giving the younger generation a chance to experience the music of yesteryear.

A tribute show can be exciting because there are many things that you can do with an event such as this. For example, you may have a tribute to a band such as Abba where you will also be able to ask all of the concert goers to come to the event in seventies themed outfits and there after host a seventies themed party after the event which will bring in even more funds to your charity. Another idea is to sell seventies themed clothing and accessories at the gate where all proceeds will again go towards your chosen charity.

Raise awareness for your cause

While raising money for your cause and charity is extremely important as is giving your party goers the best possible experience for the money that they have paid, it is important to keep in mind that your event is being hosted to raise awareness of your cause and therefore it is important that throughout the concert, the party and whatever other events you host you show videos and show facts about the people or animals that the charity supports and why it is important for your party goers to continue supporting the charity even after the concert is over. Uptempo Entertainment Services can help you book the best band to entertain your guests.. You may give out posters flyers and other brochures with information about the charity and its causes.


Sometimes The Perfect Sound Is Not Captured In A Room

Posted on

There are many types of audio performances that are done by musicians all over the world. Some are live, on a stage. Some are open air concerts. Some sing their songs in the basement of their houses, or in their garages. Yet others, in the traditional way, are captured in professional confines.
Yes, creating music in music recording studios is the time tested, sure fire way of capturing the perfect sound. It is no wonder, because these rooms are built with only that purpose in mind. Their walls and floors are made or covered in materials such as wood and carpeting which absorbs sound instead of letting it bounce off the walls. Therefore, no echoing of sounds is captured on tape (or disk, to be more time centric). They provide the perfect lighting, by which to set the mood for the artists, for them to read their manuscripts, as well as to observe the guidance provided to them by their conductor. The audio capture, editing and enhancing equipment is already in place, in every sense of the phrase, because even the physical positioning of each instrument and each voice makes a difference.

But what if, after all that, the best music recording studios in Sydney is unable to capture the essence and magic, indeed, what is known as “the sound” that you are trying to create?

Sometimes, the true essence of the clip can only be captured in the natural environment within which is was first perfected. This is why, some famous songs are those that have been created live while on stage (for example, the Eagle’s rendition of “Hotel California”), where the professional recording done surrounded by acoustically perfect equipment actually pales in comparison.

While we are proud of the perfection that we have brought in to our two high quality audio capturing facilities in our modest premises in the beautiful Blue Mountain ranges in New South Wales, we are not limited to carrying out all our work in these strict confines. No one knows your composition, and indeed, your ideas better than you yourself, and should you feel that making the audio cuts in informal environments such as a meadow, or by a bubbling brook, then we will do our part by bringing our equipment and expertise to you.

Please ensure that you speak to us for a highly personalized quotation of what we can offer in terms of timings, equipment, technical specialists and locations. Every artist is unique, and we strive to celebrate that uniqueness as we have seen time and again, how stifling that individuality only hampers the end result.
