What happens to an outdoor concert if it rains?

We play outdoors a lot, and we enjoy it. We've learned how to plan ahead with both the organizers and the audience for a successful outdoor music event.

CANCELLATION: We will be happy to discuss your event cancellation plan when making the booking. Unless we have received 24 hours notice, we will expect to play (and be paid).

SHELTER ON STAGE: Our acoustic instruments cannot play in the rain, nor can our sound system. We must reserve the option to delay or cancel if no shelter is available on stage.

SHELTER FOR THE AUDIENCE: We have had audiences happily singing and dancing in the rain! We still recommend a rain plan that provides sheltered seating for our listeners wherever possible. 

RAIN DATES: If your event has a rain date, please include it in your contract. With the understanding that one or more band members may have other commitments on alternate dates, we will make every effort to provide entertainment on your chosen rain date as needed.
