HOST A TOONMADE HOUSE CONCERT

INTERESTED IN HOSTING A HOUSE SHOW? FILL OUT THE FORM DOWN ON THE RIGHT AND HIT SUBMIT. DON'T WORRY, FILLING THIS OUT DOESN'T OBLIGATE YOU TO HOSTING OR US TO COMING, IT'S JUST AN EASY WAY TO START THE CONVERSATION. WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU!

HOW IT WORKS

  • The main thing Toonmade needs is a space that can hold around 30-60 people (or more if you want!) 

    • Like a living room/rec-room or open concept area of your home, an outdoor space when the weather is nice, an art gallery, a photography studio, an unconventional space, a classroom (we played an empty butcher shop once) 

    • We bring our own gear and set up according to the room

  • There’s no cost to host : ), and of course, the hosts and members of their household don’t have to buy tix!

    • Hosts are welcome to purchase a Host Ticket Package at a discount if they wish to sell tickets and make a slight profit 

SOME OPTIONS 

It’s up to the Hosts (and availability, of course), what kind of concert you’ll have: 

  • Toonmade: Stephen and Lisa both come and share songs from all things Toonmade, mostly badgentina, Fort George and Lisa’s solo stuff. 

  • Solo: Stephen or Lisa Solo or together but showcasing one particular artist/project. Totally doable. Depending on our schedule, (like if we’re already on the road), you might get both of us present even if it’s booked as a solo. The other Toon promises not to sing any of their own songs though, haha! 

  • A Time of Worship: A time of intimate worship led by Stephen and/or Lisa

Two Options are available in regards to "PUBLICITY" (OR PRIVACY):
 

1) PRIVATE CONCERT: Invite Only, Invited by Host. Tickets and details will only be offered to YOUR GUEST LIST, meaning, the HOST decides who is coming to their place. With this option, you will be required to provide a Guarantee (minimum fee) with the purchase of a HOST TICKETS PACKAGE which is priced at a discount. Hosts can then resell them to friends/guests at full price. This is great for providing some cash to buy food and drinks if you want to provide that, or pocket some change to go out after and buy ice cream! 

2) Somewhat OPEN CONCERT: Both Toonmade and the Hosts will promote the concert among local friends and fans, directing them to the website to buy tickets. There is, of course, a bit more risk that is taken on the part of the Hosts, but so far we haven’t had any strange or unruly fans show up to our shows! Haha. The Event doesn’t become full-on Public: attendees will have to pre-purchase tix, no unexpected tix available at the door, and the ADDRESS of the LOCATION WILL NOT BE SHARED PUBLICLY, but only with Ticket buyers via email closer to the Date. Essentially, this is still "INVITE ONLY" and a Private Party, but word of mouth Invites are not frowned upon. RSVPing happens in the form of purchasing a ticket. Please see this Disclaimer if you have any questions/concerns.

TICKETS for Southern BC Events

  • Tickets are sold on the Toonmade Website (for both Private and Public Options)

  • Cost for tickets:

    • For a solo Toon Performance $12 per ticket

    • For a duo Toonmade performance $17 per ticket

    • For full Band (if your space permits), we’ll negotiate based on space/number of attendees, and travel cost for our bandmates

    • If you want us to play a more intimate show with less people (so anything under 30), we will raise the ticket price accordingly to cover our costs.   *Keep in mind, tickets bought in a HOST PACKAGE will be discounted to benefit the Host while assuring Toonmade that their costs are covered going in. 

       

    • There is no Group discount, but for families of 5 or more, we offer a 25% discount at checkout.

TICKETS for EVENTS Outside of Southern BC

  • Our goal is to show up to any region with Toonmade fans whenever possible. In order to do that, we need to cover our travel costs. When we get invites from outside of our Southern BC region, we'll try to book other dates in and around that area so ticket prices don't have to increase drastically. If you REALLY REALLY want us to come play and you want to cover our travel costs, let us know in the form (there's a section for comments/questions etc).

CHILDREN

It's completely up to the host whether the event is open to children, but nursing babies are free of course! 

  • whatever the host decides, we'll need to know beforehand so we can communicate that on the ticket sales page

ARRIVAL/DEPARTURE/ACCOMMODATIONS

  • Toonmade will arrive 2 hours before a Show to set up and connect with the Hosts 
  • When we need to stay overnight in a town, we’ll figure out our own accommodations 

After the Concert, typically we’ll hang out for an hour, depending on what the Host wants or has going on. We’ll need 20-30 minutes to pack up our instruments and merch setup, then we’ll be on our merry way and out of your hair! Of course, we’re in no rush, but we don’t want to overstay our welcome. If you want us to scram asap, the secret signal is throwing rotten tomatoes at us while screaming gentle obscenities in our direction. If you want us to relax and hang a bit, the secret signal is turning on a high powered fan so our hair blows in the wind while you give us a standing ovation. No roses please, Lisa prefers Lilies and Orchids. Stephen enjoys being adorned with Wysteria. Tips are welcomed in the form of Manolo Blahnik shoes or Gibson Guitars : )
