Perform on a Friday evening at The Bitter End
Not seeing the workshop of your dreams offered? Do you see an advertised workshop and like the rehearsal schedule and Musical Director but not the theme? Music Makers offers Semi-Custom & Custom Workshops. For a Semi-Custom, here is how it works: You have 4 band members (required), a theme in mind, and a preferred day and time you'd like to rehearse (Mon-Thurs, 6:30-8:30pm or 8:30-10:30pm)
We'll post your semi-custom workshop with 4 members to our website and advertise to fill the remaining slot
Here's what's included: Choice of theme, 16 hours of rehearsal in a premium studio, one of our fantastic Musical Directors, a Friday night gig at The Bitter End, and a full backline and tech at the show. MM takes care of everything
For a complete custom, you'll need 5 band members willing to register at the same time and it's a done deal, no further advertising for additional band members required. This would include the same perks as a Semi-Custom with the addition of your group being able to control specific song choices for your rehearsals/gig

TERMS & CONDITIONS

We ask all workshop participants to please make every effort to attend all rehearsals.  If you're unable to attend any rehearsals, you are required to notify Music Makers NY via email musicmakersnewyork@gmail.com at least 48 hours in advance.  When registering, should you have a conflict with a rehearsal date, please make Music Makers aware of the conflict.  Not attending more than 2 rehearsals within an 6 or 8-week performance program can greatly affect the band as a whole.
