Costs We will book both small and large acts Costs for bands will run from $1500- $25,000 Costs for Tech support and Marketing range from $500 - $8000
Absolutely NO student funds are used for these costs.
Limitations We CANNOT book any act that is blacklisted due to the group, the agent or the agency having knowingly or unknowingly participated in the pay for play “Payola Scandal” prosecuted by then State Attorney General Spitzer
So… We serve the entire Finger Lakes We are limited to groups who are not blacklisted We are limited to groups that will agree to be broadcast live We are limited to groups who are touring and have available dates We are limited to dates which the venue has available We are limited to groups we can afford
Relationship to HWS Mission … the Colleges have purposefully expanded our mission to encompass substantive engagement in both the local Geneva community and the greater Finger Lakes region. No longer restricting the scope of our vision to the nearly 2000 students on our campus, we have embarked on a series of initiatives to connect our students, our faculty, and our institutional resources more deeply and more permanently into our larger community…
