Do I have to bring my own guitar for the performance?


What guitar do you recommend?

We will play acoustic guitars. You are welcome to bring an electric but you cannot plug it in or use an amplifier (for technical reasons)
The guitar model is your decision, but we suggest an inexpensive acoustic guitar. There are several local stores in DMV area. if you call them, offered to keep the guitar in the store until you can pick it up. There are other stores in the area like Guitar Center, Middle C Music (In DC), Drums Unlimited, where you can buy (or rent if you do it as soon as possible). You can also buy online or check with people you know if you can borrow one.

Is there a place to store belongings and cases during the performance?

Yes. There will be a storage section behind the stage. We are requesting that you label your guitar case or gig bag as if you were traveling and picking it up at the baggage carousel at the airport. There will be hundreds of other cases and we want to make sure this process goes smoothly. Put something on it that makes it easy to identify. Please do not bring anything you don’t really need.

Is there a nursery/kids care area for participant’s children while they perform?

No. As much as we would like to offer that, there are security policies and logistic issues that do not allow this option. There cannot be anyone on stage either that is not performing, children or adults.
