• We use the Facebook Event pages for our main website calendar and we want to start getting people excited about the show ASAP.
If you’ve never done this learn how
The title should be Your Band Name – Live@210. (That’s the band name, then a space, then a hyphen, then another space, then Live@210 (Live@210 is all one word) with a capital L and no other punctuation.)
2. Public, not Private Event
The default on personal page events is private! It cannot be changed after it is created, so this is important to get right at the beginning. Change the event to public. On band/musician pages events are public by default so this won’t be a problem.
3. Description Box on Facebook Event
Describe the type of music your band plays
Include bios of the band and band members. Content is good!
Include links to your website and links to video or audio so people can hear what you sound like and get excited about the show. Hyperlinks should start with http:// so should look like http://www.webaddress.com where you insert your link in place of the italicized.
Leave this block empty
The answer to this is typically yes Wednesday/Thursday/Sunday. Can be yes or left unchecked for Friday/Saturday.
6. Event Photo
The event photo you upload has to work in a horizontal format, because that’s just the way Facebook event and cover photos work. Best is a high-resolution landscape (horizontal) photograph (784×295 pixels, to be exact, but you can try uploading your picture and see how it looks even if not that exact size).
7. If you are having any issues with this, just give us a buzz. Mark from Coffee Cup Productions at 312-545-3865
Logo image (disregard if in EPK)
Other band images that can be used for promotion. You should already have uploaded a horizontally oriented picture for the Facebook page and 2 or 3 other pictures that will show you and/or your band in a favorable light. If not please send now.
• Promote early, late and in-between!
210 will do everything in it’s power to promote the show, but we know you have your people and your connections. Please send emails, make phone calls and get the crowd excited on Facebook right away to ask your people to save the date.
Come by the restaurant for dinner and try a few things so you can share from your heart how great the food is. We make our money from food and beverage, so if people wine and dine, we’ll be that much happier to have you back again.
Two weeks prior to the show (or whenever you thing is right for your audience) send out invites from your Facebook event and another email to your list to ask them to come and to make reservations for dinner so that they can have the best seats in the house! We can even reserve couch sections for customers that are planning to dine at 210.
Note: Coffee Cup Productions reviews all promotional materials to see if there’s any way they can help you to achieve greater success in marketing and promotion. If they don’t contact you and you would like to have their assistance, contact Mark at 312-545-3865

We have a wonderful Hammond A100 which uses 3 inputs. We have a beautiful grand piano, but it is off the stage, so may be of limited use except in jazz groups that play off the stage.
