Best of Original Concert Series - How it works:
Each show is a concert. The venue provides regional level club, lights and sound. Stage is set, sound checked and ready for show at 7PM. Tickets are $9 in advance or $12 at the door. Contact venue for table reservations. The performer who brings the most fans through the door wins cash. Cash winnings are determined by total tickets sold and tickets sold by each performer. Guests will be asked who they came to see at the door when presenting or purchasing a ticket. At the end of the night we will announce the winner. After costs to produce and promote are excluded, a sold-out show (100% advance) at Tannery Row Ale House would pay entertainers as follows.

  • Entertainer payment:  4 act show, 30 minutes set  /  3 act show, 40 minutes set
    • Most crowd attendance  $350+  /  $425+
    • 2nd most crowd attendance  $250+  /  $250+
    • 3rd most crowd attendance  $175+  /  $175+
    • 4th most crowd attendance  $75+  /  not applicable

​Number of entertainers per show is determined by scheduling availability. Tannery Row Ale House, The Station room capacity is 150 for this event. Each show in this concert event will record entertainer crowd attendance. Entertainers performing more than once in a concert series are eligible for entertainer pay each performance. However, Semifinalists and Finalists for this event are determined by who brings the most fans and will use the single highest crowd attendance night for entertainers performing multiple shows within a concert series. The top three (3) in crowd attendance go to the Finale. The next eight (8) in highest crowd attendance perform a two (2) night Semifinal – four entertainers each night. The Semifinalist with the highest crowd attendance advances to Finale. Four (4) entertainers perform a single night Finale.  ​Entertainer payments subject to ticket prices, promotion and/or production cost changes which could produce higher or lower payments to entertainers on an individual show basis.

Series schedule:
Monthly performances held on Thursdays, 7PM-11:30PM, beginning February 15, 2018 and will conclude as series dictates. Selection round winner, Grand Prize Winner and Grand Prize Runners-Up are decided by the Entertainer's crowd attendance. In the event of a crowd attendance tie, a judges panel vote will break the tie. Selection round winners advance to the Finale. Selection round Runners-Up advance to the Semifinals. This is a reentry event at discretion of Original Series. The top Semifinalists are invited to perform in the Finale. Semifinal and Finale dates and times to be determined. Event schedule may change as event needs demand.
