The sunset session (Summer Version of the Moonshine Session) is a possibility for Singer/Songwriters to play their songs in a comfortable atmosphere. After the wonderful and successful previous Sessions, there is no other answer than to keep on going.
The basic idea is to create a room for people who love to play or to listen to live music. Unlike the moonshine session, the sunset session will be in a garden instead of a living-room and we might use amplfication. Of course it depends on the weather and we try to keep an alternative location in case it rains.
Unfortunately open-mics often happen at loud places, which is annoying both for the musician and the listener. At the moonshine session, an important rule is to listen and to respect the person that is playing, no matter how experienced he/she is! Unlike traditional Open-Mics, the line-up will be set beforehand. If there's enough time and people are still open for more, artists can sponaneously play after the «official» session. We can't guarantee for that though.
An important purpose that the sunset session has, is to introduce you to musicians that you probably never heard of or haven't seen live, yet. That's why we keep the Line-Up secret and recommend to stay until the very end of the session. The order of the musicians who play at the session is made shortly before the session begins and there is no preference made in the order. This means that your highlight of the evening can perhaps be at the start, in the middle or at the end. Overall, we try to make the whole evening the highlight of the evening!!! Keep that in mind and keep your excitement until the end.
Here are a few rules and additional information:
-every artist will play 3-4 Songs (has up to 25 Minutes, depends on how long the songs are)
-there will be several artists performing (we keep the line-up as a surprise)
-please follow the house/garden rules as it's a private home
-don't talk when somebody is playing
-bring your own beverages
