Raystock 6

Wow, so it's hard to believe that it's almost a year since the last Raystock, for everyone who has helped me out last year, and in all the years past (and you know who you are) thanks a lot! But of course, since it is that time of year again, I am again going to be needing help. First off, if there are any cover bands that anyone knows of that might be interested in playing at this years raystock, please let me know. We have plenty of original bands that want to play but we had like almost all original bands that played last year, so I thought that it might be good to throw in a few good cover bands too. Let me know what you think on that.

Alright so here is a tentative schedule of the few bands that may be on board again this year. Leeds Kin of course, although they haven't told me so, so im taking it upon myself to just say they are. Disciples of Groove have been asked and accepted, Human, Tribal Scream, and Mortal Decay, which actually wasnt going to be asked but someone else in one of the other bands took it upon themselves to ask them before i could say i needed to think about it. Yes, I definately need more bands. Which i was thinking about asking Rare Breed although they are kinda considered heavy and besides having too many original bands we also had too many heavy bands. But, they play with Leeds Kin a lot and they are good people and all, so Im sure they will end up in the lineup somewhere.

Another thing I was thinking, last year we had 14 bands play. We like to keep it at at least 10 bands. I thought maybe it might be better to start it this year at 2 instead of noon, which will cut out a few bands, but how many people actually get there at noon? and it would give us a few hours to get there and set up and everything before the first band goes on. Please people give me your opinion on that as well.

The last thing I can think of is, if everyone can just try their best to promote this thing as soon as i get the definate times and all...that would be a big help. I know there are like bulletins you can post too and stuff, but if everyone just like posted making it sound all great and stuff it might help, who's an idea, and its one somebody told me to try so im going to.

I guess thats all for now, but like I said any feedback or input or whatever that anyone might have for me feel free to give it. I am going to need all the help I can get, it is coming up very soon, and it just so happens to be like my most extremely busy time at don't be surprised if i am extremely stressed out by the time november rolls around.

It's definate. I just got a call from the Shrub, and they told me that November 13th was ok. They had to cancel this big band that they had playing there on that night, so I was hoping it would work out and everything. It's this old rocker type band that plays like lynard skinard songs, like Simple Man :) Alright just letting everyone know the date.

Let me know how I could possibly help even though I'm kinda far away. Is the site still around from lart year? Maybe I can try designing flyers for you this year, if you'd like? Let me know!

a friend of mine made up the flyers already. um, the site is still around. i guess your brother is the one who will be working on that, but if you want you can ask him, cause who knows maybe he doesnt want to anymore, and there is something you can do with that, or maybe he is going to but there is something you could help him with. you know i dont really know whats going on in that area.

as far as anything else, if you find any like websites or bulletins or whatever they are called that are devoted to south jersey events or whatever you could post on there for me. that would be great...any way we can get the word out or whatever. lastly, and this you dont have to let me know until later, if you want to like make some kind of food for the band room, and that way you can get in there and eat for free too, let me know alright.
