Wondering how a street-concert works? Read these FAQ's.
Q. Who is this guy playing all these street concerts?
A. Martin Kerr is a professional musician who has performed at Rogers Place with Sarah McLachlan, The Winspear Centre 3 times, toured the world and has had an album in the Canadian Top 10. Due to COVID-19 Martin had his entire summer tour cancelled - so instead he's bringing music to neighbourhoods across the city, one block at a time!
Q. Is there a cost?
A. Yes. We ask for a starting donation of $500 (negotiable) to confirm a booking, plus tips from the neighbours on the day. The initial donation can vary based on location, layout of the street, and expected community engagement. In normal times to book Martin for any event costs a minimum of $1000, so you're getting a great deal!
Q. What does Martin need from me on the day of the show?
A. One extension cord running to the end of your driveway/front yard, 15 mins before the show. We will provide everything else.
Q. Do you have a flyer that I can give to my neighbours to tell them about the concert?
A. We sure do! We can provide an e-flyer and/or printed postcards. Please inform everyone on your block.
Q: How long is the show?
A: Roughly 45 mins. This is one full set. It seems to be a comfortable time for everyone to enjoy while being outside.
Q. Can I invite my friends and family from nearby streets to watch the concert?
A. We don't encourage this. The concert is intended for you to enjoy from your own home. If you choose to invite guests to your property, we ask that you please follow the social distancing guidelines provided by Alberta Health.
Q. We don’t want to ask the neighbours to tip, but would Martin come and perform for our anniversary/birthday/grad?
A. Yes! This will be considered a private booking so different rates apply. Contact us directly to agree a fee that works.
Q: How loud is the concert?
A: Loud enough for everyone on your block to enjoy it, but not loud enough for anyone else to be bothered by it. We have played dozens of these already and not had any noise complaints.
Q. Will Martin perform for a graduation celebration?
A. Absolutely! Send us a message.
