My wife and I spend a lot of time working with and raising money for Casa Pacifica, a center for abused and neglected children in our area. One of the events we help out with is their Wine, Food & Brew Festival, where they raise nearly half a million dollars towards their operating budget each year.
This year’s festival is June 1st and although they have a reasonable budget for entertainment, they are having problems finding a band to play that afternoon. In the past, they’ve hired cover bands similar The Spazmatics and Boogie Nights who have played for anything from ‘cost’ all the way up to $15K+ from what I understand. I think they'll be open to anything (cover or not), that's entertaining and wine buzzed cougars could dance to.
Anyone in the LA area have a good contact or method for reaching out to talent for something like this?
The event is at CSU Channel Islands, near Camarillo.
