Hello all, I am hoping to hold a trumpet hang in Buffalo NY for sometime in February. I am looking to you who have hosted or attended such an event for advice as to time of day VS a bar being available, whether to offer food for a price or not and security, (how do you ensure against an unscrupulous individual from walking off with a nice horn)?
My tentative plan is to hold it at an American Legion Post. My initial thought was to schedule for 2:00 PM but If it were scheduled to begin at say 5:00 PM or 7:00 PM the bartender could be staffing the bar. Admission $5.00, pizza and wings $5.00. Intention is to invite individuals to bring their horns and perhaps invite local music stores to bring in a selection of horns they sell.
Please tell me your opinions on such an event besides that the weather can suck in Buffalo in February.
