just found out that the the JJ ferrara center(philhrmonic center) in Hazleton is available fairly cheap (around $200 for the whole day) its a good size venue and Hazleton is an easy to find location being right off of both I 80 and I 81 and not far from I 476 I'm sure with all are resources here we can pull something together ( peroformings ;advertising;promotion ect...) I am counting on all u guys (and girls) to help me out with this and we can start planning a date and get the ball rolling
so any ideas from anyone about how we can pull this off will be appreciated and I kno Mr Speal can work some of his magic in helping all of us make this happen

that sounds really cool....you thinking show/guzzle fest? we would need a good PA too... would it have to be all cgbox performers, or some folk/blues too? just thinking about the draw factor...
thought about the sound system issue sleeper and I figue we got 3 options :
1. I believe they have a House system but sound quality may be questionable
2' Maybe one of the performers might be wliing to supply
3. C&c music rith here in town does rent them out might be even able to swing a deal with add space and such the owner is a good friend of mine
there are a few other options I can look into around as well but those 3 are the simplest
as far as other non cbg acts go we'll need to play that by ear for now.It will depend on what acts we can get ccbg related first and time constraints and the like but it is deffinitley an option
Sounds great. Hazleton is an hour from my place, if something happens I definately want to go or be part of it. I build and know enough to play a few things, but I'm definately not a great guitar player. Would we be selling our CBG's? or atleast advertising?
i MIGHT BE ABLE TO GET AHOLD OF A SERVICEABLE PA. mY DRUMMER OWN ONE AND HE MIGHT BE WILLING TO DONATE IT FOR THE SHOW, ESPECIALLY IF WE ARE PLAYING IT. KEEP ME POSTED ON YOUR IDEAS
