Want to play your music at a summer concert? Send in your submission for the Hiawatha Summer Concert Series

If you are a musician or know one the Admiral Neighborhood Association is getting ready for their popular summer concert series by accepting submissions for bands/acts for the 2014 Admiral Neighborhood Association Summer Concerts at Hiawatha Park. Hiawatha Park is just adjacent to West Seattle High School in the Admiral District.

This year’s concerts will be held on Thursday evenings – July 24th, July 31st, August 7th, August 14th, August 21st, and August 28th – beginning at 6:30 pm.

Concerts are free to the community and made possible by sponsorships and support from Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Associated Recreation Council, the Admiral Neighborhood Association, and area businesses.

Katy Walum shared the requirements for application for those who would like to be considered for the series.

If you would like to be considered for this year’s concert series, please submit the following preliminary information to info@admiralneighborhood.org:

(1) Band name and brief description of genre/style

(2) Band website or other link to where the band’s past performances may be viewed/listened to

(3) Band’s fee for a 90-minute performance, including a 10-minute break, if desired. Please indicate whether this fee is negotiable

(4) Number of members of band and types of instruments played

(5) Stage size requested and special sound/equipment requests

(4) Band contact name, email address, and phone number

Past artists performing for the series have included The Dusty 45s, Caspar Babypants, Star Anna, LeRoy Bell, Glenn Crytzer & his Syncopators, Fly Moon Royalty, Massy Ferguson, Reilly & Maloney, Pearl Django, and Yogoman Burning Band, to give an idea of the caliber of talent and diversity of appeal we seek.

Band submissions will be reviewed over the next few months (please remember we are volunteer-driven!) and we hope to contact bands and announce our lineup by about May or June.

We also appreciate reader recommendations of bands to consider for the series (that’s how we found The Local Strangers for our 2012 series!).

Thanks so much to all. We look forward to putting together another smashing ANA Summer Concert Series, and we’re already dreaming of warm summer evenings on the lawn at Hiawatha!
