Solo jazz pianist for wedding- Nov. 12

Looking for solo jazz pianist to play for two hours at my wedding reception at the University Club on Library Mall, 12 November. You’d be ready to play at 3 p.m. and jam until 5 p.m. The atmosphere is cozy and we imagine there will be people right nearby the piano having conversations, so we’re looking for relatively soft music. Standards and nothing too outré would make my fiancée happy … I don’t want you to just become “background music,” though, so the occasional left turn into a more fun classic like “Ahmad’s Blues”—or something cool that you like to play, including improvisation—would make me happy.

$200 for the two hours.

String Quartet-Eagle River Wedding, October 1

Date: Saturday, October 01, 2016

Type of Event: wedding ceremony + cocktail hour (directly after)

Time of Event: 1:00 p.m. (still being confirmed)

Arrival Time:

Location: Eagle Ridge Resort (Galena, IL)

Ensemble: Quartet (2 violins, viola & cello)

Pay: $250 each

Need a  string quartet for the gig below.  The indicated per player pay reflects extra for the travel time (I’m hoping musicians would be able to carpool together from the University).

Perfect Harmony Strings has expanded nationwide within the past few years so this is also a great time to join the roster for ongoing paid gigs!  I’m a professional violinist myself who provides fully notated/organized music by mail (which makes for a very easy gig experience where players just need to show up on time, play well and then collect a paycheck afterward)!

Thanks,
Perfect Harmony <perfect_harmony04@hotmail.com>

“Band in Box” music organizer needed

Musician needed…

$14-16/hour

I want to make more efficient my process to assemble binder of lead sheets all in Band in Box format, plus separate sets of words, in addition to those I already have.  Includes original simply songs and some jazz standards.

You can work mostly on your own time and places, interacting with band in a box to create files and edit as needed as I work with them. Eventually will also want to record little demos of how the original ones sound so I can share with others in other places.

Best if student has up to date Band in Box software on own computer and is willing to help me install up to date Band in Box on my MAC computer. I would consider funding
update for a student of BIB software to most recent version  at same time.

Ongoing project. Prefer someone who has already worked with Band in Box and has software on own computer. Recent version best as I am about to update and it has improved. I know other music software exists but prefer Band in a Box right now. Prefer someone who might enjoy the process.

Date place time:
Job is great for student in terms of flexibility. Not sure how often have to get together to make the process work,  maybe once a week at most.
Much of work can be done on student’s own computer whenever student prefers.
Eventually also need to make little demos of each song so can send to friends in other states so they can hear what sound like (for originals).
Best to meet on weekend to go over current binder etc. and set out plan.

Name: Anne S. Miner – Professor Emerita
Not a UW job per se.

I am emerita faculty who writes some songs, does some open mics every now and then and goes to music camps.
Want to shape up my binder of jazz standards, and expand binder of my own songs. Need to translate own songs to band in a box, and for standards take old versions I have and put all in identical format in Band in Box.

In put on the project also welcome, but mostly need person with ready skills, great attention to detail and appropriate software skills for this project.

A paid fee is certainly to be done.

Our son and his fiancee graduated from UW-Madison. My wife and I follow the band at many events either the 5th quarters after football games and other performances outside Madison. It would be very much appreciated if we could do this for our graduates and maybe even keep it a surprise.
