Hey Guys and Gals:  
Grab a red hat and a Banjo or Washboard and get out there.
Good gig for one man bands too,  They have one in Albany, and he is a trip to 
watch for about one song.

No St. Gabriel's won't be there, and now you see why we don't play Berkeley 
( Noise ordinance)  but Hookers on the street are OK.   What a City.


The Solano Avenue Association is now booking December holiday-specific 
entertainers.  This could be you!  Here's the info:

• The SAA is paying $50 per 2-hour slot, doesn't matter if it is one person 
or 20, it's still $50.  You are welcome to pass the hat to supplement.  No 
other sales allowed, however.  Rain cancels.

• The days you may choose from for outdoor street performances:
Saturdays    December 4,11,18
Sundays    December 5,12,19
Monday        December 20
Tuesday    December 21
Wednesday    December 22
Thursday    December 23

• The time slots you may choose from are 1-3PM or 3-5PM. 

• After you have chosen a date & time slot, we will assign you a location.  
If you need to use electricity, we will give you the name of a business owner 
who will let you plug into their store.  Please contact them directly and 
confirm with them beforehand as a courtesy.  Lower Albany has electricity in the 
light fixtures about 12' high.  BYO extension cords and something to stand on to 
reach it.  If you would rather be strolling, that works also!  If you want a 
Berkeley location YOU MUST BE 100% ACOUSTIC - NOT EVEN A VOICE MIC.  Otherwise 
we have to get sound permits and we don't want to do that.

• We're looking for holiday music, entertainment, and costume.  We do not 
want loud rock or blues bands, sorry!  Get out your funny red hats, red boas and 
tinsel, or perhaps you'd like to wear blue & white shawls.  We welcome the 
diversity of ethnic celebrations during the winter solstice season.

• Choose your time slots now -- no more than three per group, please, with 
your specific request for date, time, etc.  Your response is DUE BY NOVEMBER 5.

Ho! Ho! Ho!
