Right now I am actively looking for some special people to feature at Spirited. I am working on doing better than I have in the past with All Of Us. And I would like to find a team who I can hire and pay fairly that I can establish a good relationship with for this and future projects. Maybe even more than one team.
In the past I hired a head DJ and gave that person a budget and said … do your thing. However, in 2017 it was clear there was an element missing which included Technical Support and in 2018 we hired someone to that specifically, so I think whomever comes on as a team has to have someone in that group to be technically proficient so the talent can do their jobs with fewer people stressing over equipment.
Going forward, I am seeking a package deal where I can hire a producer who might also be the head DJ who:
- will hire, schedule, and pay talent to play the scheduled parties at a Queerburners event
- will provide all supporting equipment and have a technician who can repair and setup as needed and be ready for showtime
- will provide all lighting needed for their needs at the DJ section
Queerburners will pay the Producer a negotiated contracted amount as a budget item for our records and either treat you as a contracted entity or will work with you to see what is the best solution. This will have to be in writing with a clear understanding of what is expected for your protection and ours.
- Must have music programs in place for all scheduled dance events for a Queerburners Production
- Must provide all equipment including speakers, decks, cables and power cords. In some cases that may include generators (Spirited).
Additional production design, lighting and decoration is the responsibility of Queerburners unless that is also negnotiated.
Sound must always be in compliance with local laws and may need to be managed or limited based on the direction of the production team leadership.
Basically you and each person on your team will also get:
- paid a negotiated rate per set preferably through the Producer
- one ticket to the event for the performer and a plus 1 without charge
- access to the event as any guest
