Advocacy and Bookings.
Help Exposé with 2009 Bookings.
With the help of Del Phillips and Shannon Woodsmall, I want to send a message to the fans of Ann, Jeanette, and Gioia to help get more Exposé shows booked for next year. Exposé have perfomed at several concert venues throughout 2006-2008. We want to make sure they get even more interest in 2009.
We want to make sure that Exposé gets several bookings for 2009! Fan demand will help grow Exposé's concert appearances. We want to get a grassroots movement started, similar to what has happened politically this year.
Here's the first wave of gathering interest: Del and Shannon have compiled a list of the Gay Pride festivals around the country. Exposé have performed at many of these outlets and the reception to them has been very good at those venues. Since this is the concert booking season, we'd like to inform them of Exposé's success and how well they have performed at prior concert venues. On my site is an Excel Spreadsheet which contains a list of all the major Pride events around the country. If you can e-mail these venues and ask for them, it may help them get booked for the Spring and Summer of 2009.
Much of this coordination is starting on the Facebook page for Fans of 80s Group Exposé. If you choose not to go the facebook route, you can contact Del and Shannon at expose.fans --AT-- yahoo.com (replace the AT with @ to e-mail).
We also have a template letter you can use when writing or e-mailing the people.
Additional waves we are considering include Rhythmic AC / Top 40 stations, and any concert venues we can think of. When we have gathered a good list I will post them.
