That was a rather cryptic post on social media but now I need feedback. Please share this and reply.
I’m a stay at home dad. So when dad has to miss an event or wears a suit to a “meeting”, well, let’s just say interests are piqued. The last few months I’ve been trying to figure out if Westchester NY is a good place for a small music venue. I think so. A few others I’ve met with also believe so. Most small spaces for music are restaurants that tuck the musicians in a corner. I want to focus on music. Not cover bands. Original music. The kind of music you’ve gotten via my charity concert series but on a daily basis.
OK, quickly back to the Penny Jar. So my 9 year asks me about missing events and wearing suits and “having meetings”. I tell her about my music venue idea. She is excited. The following day she wakes up and comes into the kitchen with a jar of pennies (and lose change) to help me buy a place to open a small music venue. I almost cried right then and there. HOW BLOODY COOL is she? None more cool.
I need a bit of feedback. I’m going to crowdsource a bit of the venue (and to gauge interest).
What would reward would you purchase? And Yes I want to offer something for Non-NY Nexters also.
Here are a few ideas I think may be of interest but please add your own and the price you believe people might pay.
Your name on a brick or embedded in the bar top or a stool/chair: $500?
Tickets to Opening Night. $125?
Naming rights to the Stage(s). We’re hoping for small acoustic and a main stage: Let’s Talk
Limited Edition Tee Shirt: $40?

MP3’s (5) of Live Songs: $20?
10 Pack of Tickets (I think the range for shows will be $8 to $40 Mostly $15 to $25): $175?

I truly need your help and want (NEED) your feedback.
Enjoy it all
