How To Book A Show
Booking a Peter McCory show is easy. Here are
some facts you might fide helpful.
How Long Is A Standard Show?
Peter's standard show runs 45-minutes,
but if the kids are having fun, it's not unusual for it to run over a little. He's happy to play for
longer, if you wish. He always offers a half-price discount for
a second or subsequent back-to-back show. That's because he's already there, and he doesn't have to
set up again! So sponsors often ask him to play two sets, one for one group, then the second for
another. This works great for school assemblies, where there may be too many students to fit
comfortably in the space.
How Much Does A Show Cost?
It's hard to quote standard prices
because the costs vary depending upon a couple of factors.
Please call or e-mail, and Peter will be happy to give you a specific cost. Here are a few of the
things that affect cost:
* How far away is the function? Rates for the Northern Virginia nd DC area are pretty standard.
But for shows where distant travel is involved, an additional fee may be added.
* Are overnight accommodations necessary? Sometimes sponsors get creative and get local
motels to donate a room. This saves the additional expense of lodgings for Peter. But he's
happy to make his own arrangements.
Does He Require A Sound System?
Peter always uses a microphone when he plays! You'd be surprised how much
noise even the smallest group of happy children can make. You have to be able to outsing them
if you want to stay in control. Most of the time Peter uses his own PA system, and it is included
in his costs. However, he's happy to work with your sound engineer if your event will
have a professional sound company providing PA services. Peter's system can accommodate groups of up
to approximately 1,500. He also has a small battery-powered system for street shows and places with no AC.
Assuming the date is
available, you'll get a contract/invoice to sign which specifies all the details.
Nobody likes poor communications, and no one wants to disappoint little ones if there
is confusion regarding a date or place. So Peter tries very hard to stay organized and keep
a formal contracting procedure in place to prevent mishaps. Seems to work pretty well.
Peter is committed to offering
quality musical programs for children. If you are not fully satisfied
with the show, there is no charge.
Peter has hundreds of satisfied
sponsors all around the mid-Atlantic area. If you would like references, please ask!
