I want to thank you so much for joining me at GenCon this year. I had an absolute blast. I also got some ideas for next year. I’d love your feedback.
The Firefly Drinking Songs was once again a big hit. 175 seats sold out quickly. The sad part was that only 115 people attended the show. The show still rocked, but I met a LOT of people who said, “I really wanted to go, but it was sold out.”
Did you go to the show? Were you unable to get tickets?
One thought I had was to charge for next year’s show. My hope is that if the show cost more than a generic ticket, perhaps people who be less inclined to order and not use them.
What do you think? Would you be turned off from a $4 ticket instead of the $2? Or would you be happy to pay the extra to insure that you have a seat?
The Irish Drinking Songs for Cat Lovers show was disappointing. The performance went rather well, but hey had me in a big ballroom. That was tough enough, but add the amtgarders and I think most everyone would agree the sound was terrible.
I have two options here:
One, is to add a show before or after Friday Night Live.
The second is to get one of the smaller rooms. We would be limited to 30 seats. The chance of scoring a seat would be tough. We had 75 sell out fairly quick. So I can only imagine what a 30 seater would be like.
I guess a third option is to just make sure I have a bigger sound system which could handle that better. I have one, but I prefer bringing the smaller system.
What are your thoughts? Which would you prefer?
That’s about all the thoughts I have regarding next year. Please, please send me some feedback. What would you prefer?
Anyway, thank you so much for being a part of GenCon. You are awesome.
