The Playlist Sessions
Festival of Friends "The Playlist Sessions" format is simple: community musicians (a mix of instrumentalists and vocalists) sign up for the "musician roulette pool". Musicians who are registered in the pool are invited to participate in a pre-scheduled, studio-based band session. You won't know who your band mates are until you've received your session invite.
Each band is provided an hour and a half studio session to play and "perform" your session's songs. Band members will self-coordinate for a pre-session, informal meet and greet (in person or online) to say hello and determine what the band's session "set list" will be. Bands can choose up to 4 songs per session.
Musician Roulette will bring together many facets of our musician community that may seem incompatible, as well as musicians whose interests may conflict. The challenge for these musicians is to go beyond their musical differences and work together to create a unified group that represents personal styles of the individual band members while honoring and reflecting the session's theme.
