Sponsor a BluStage Live Performance

The “Live at BluStage” performance series is what BluSeed Studios is best known for in the community at large, drawing more participants than any of its other program offerings. The high-quality, culturally diverse, affordable performances are geared towards year-round residents in a non-bar environment. They take place approximately once per month September through April, and average attendance is 60 people.

A Live at BluStage sponsorship of $500 helps subsidize the cost of bringing nationally recognized performers to our small community. Direct costs of a Live at BluStage concert include the performance fee, Sound Tech, artist lodging and dinner, marketing and publicity.

Sponsor an Open Minded Mic Night

One of BluSeed’s most popular events is the Open Minded Mic series. There are 4 Open Minded Mic Nights per season (October, November, February and March). It is always on a Thursday night and attendance is typically 45-55. We charge $3 per person and offer complimentary refreshments. A host band or performer MC’s the event and a professional Sound Engineer is hired. This event is known for providing a welcoming audience to first time and emerging performers, especially young people, including bands, singer/songwriters, poets, comedians, impersonators, storytellers and more. As a result, Open Minded Mic Nights draw an audience and performers that are diverse in age, performance type and economic background.

An Open Minded Mic Night sponsorship of $400 allows BluSeed Studios to provide the following. (The sponsor will receive recognition in the press release, on the posters and at the event.)

  • Professional Sound Tech = $100 per event
  • Best of House Award = $50 per event given to the performer selected by the audience
  • Honorarium for host artist = $125 per event
  • Refreshments provided free (coffee, tea and cookies) = $25 per event
  • Posters (will feature sponsor’s logo if provided), Marketing (Bootstrap Communications) = $100
  • BluSeed will provide overhead costs, additional advertising and two employees = $210 per event
