Salon on Buffalo FUND

My name is Susan Krebs and I’m a musician seeking support for my Salon on Buffalo Series 2024. To produce this growing series properly and responsibly requires underwriting, and so for the second year, I’ve created this Salon Fund.

Listening venues in which to play one’s music are in short supply. These salons offer a rare intimate concert environment for musicians to play what they may and with whom they may! And it gives the fully-engaged audience – many regulars – a stimulating concert experience followed by a stimulating hang. It is a balm of a gathering! There is a ripple effect I believe with the in-person or live-streaming salon’s good vibrations going out and about into the world.

> The salons will stream on FaceBook. One good camera with good aux mic, aiming to share the good music and good vibes in the “parlor” with more folks.

> All musician participants will have DropBox access to/download of a good Video document of the concert.

Your Underwriting will ensure:

> Guaranteed Minimums for Musicians and for my Tech/Assoc Producer.

> Covering my Cost Outlay for each salon.

(Food & Bevs, Paper Goods, Piano Tuning)

> Covering much of my one-time Streaming Set-Up cost. 

Salon Gate is $25 – includes libations and tasty bites.

Average Attendance: 15 – 20.

Sometimes the Gate will meet my guarantees and costs, sometimes with surplus going to the musicians;  sometimes it will not, and that is when I will draw from the Salon Fund.

A suggested $25 DONATION to this fund would be most welcome.

It gives me great pleasure to present these very fine Jazz artists from our community in my little corner of the world. Thank you for your support in allowing me to continue. Let’s make Jazz not War ! Slide on by the parlor ~ Suze
