Well we can’t get together in the Beach Hall, but we can get together over the intertubes, so we’re going to experiment how our Clubnight format translates into an online event.
Doors open as usual at 7.30 = Join a Zoom meeting – details below.
We’ll spend the time till 8.00PM talking, saying hello, catching up with each other, and giving our name to the MC (PaulH) if we want to perform.
First half from 8.00PM – Usual story, floorspots comprising 2 songs, max 10 minutes, you’ll have the focus for the duration of your spot, rest of attendees muted.
We reserve the right to cut short a floorspot if the quality of a performers internet connection isn’t up to it, though the first option will be suggesting they turn off video, and see if that gives us a better audio experience.
There is a chat facility (typed comments) where audience can show their appreciation and comment. Too many people trying to audibly applaud, make verbal comments at this point can turn the audio stream to mush, so we’ll be keeping people muted between acts.
All attendees will be unmuted at half time, to give the opportunity to connect again, but take care, everybody talking at once will turn into an unintelligible mush. You’ll have to provide your own tea/coffee/milo/biscuits.
Second Half – Not necessarily in this order:-
3 mini-spots, we thought to try three 15 to 20 mins per guest, just in case things go technically wrong with any one of them, then we can easily get one of the others in to fill the gap.
That’s it – no chairs to put away, no long drive home.
So, how to join up,
You can join from your web browser via the link below, but it works best if you download the app ‘Zoom Cloud Meetings’ from your Android/IOS store, or from Zoom.us for your PC. Once you have it, enter the MeetingID and you’re in.
You don’t need to sign up for an account to be able to participate, and if you don’t have a camera and microphone you can still listen and watch.
Titirangi Folk Music Club is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
