Silent Auction for 2013: Studio time, video production and pool!

Whew! We have a lot of things for silent auction this year! In addition to studio time, we’ve got video production and an after work pool party (billiards, not the water park type) for 20 people.  There’s more coming in all of the time, but get a preview of the auction items in the gallery.
We also have some big news from our friends at Uber, as well as many, many other people and places who are donating items for the raffles happening at each of the four nights this year!

In case you’re wondering- YES, we will have JP Licks gift certificates!  YES, we have Redbones gift cards!

What a weekend!

I’m still recovering from this weekend! Check out just a few of the photos Mick Murray took both nights! There are a TON more, and a bunch from other photographers as well!

Our silent auction for studio time ended on Sunday at 8pm and the winners have all been notified.  In case you’re wondering who to get friendly with really quickly, it’s:

Four hours at Woolly Mammoth Studio with Dave Minehan

Mike Oliver, ‘Hoods fan extraordinaire, won the Woolly time.

A Day in Studio B at Q Division with Ed Valauskas
Two songs mastered at Peerless with Jeff Lipton

Well planned bidding earned Ken Rothman and his band studio time, not only at Q Division but at Peerless as well!

A Day at Zippah with Brian Charles

Frank D’Urso(aka FrankD from the Noise Board) clicked away with Zippah time!


Thanks to all of the bands, the Davis Square Theatre and all of the folks who donated raffle and silent auction items!
Thanks to all of the fans who came out, and to new friends met both nights!

MS doesn’t rest, so neither do we.  The ride is 10/21 and next year’s shows are already being planned.

More raffle items


Let me just say this first: the idea of a raffle came from Pete Hayes.  He wanted the shows to be more interactive and fun, because pretty much anyone can get their friends together to play a benefit, but not everyone can get a Djembe.

It was offered as a raffle prize before we had the shows. Maybe it’ll be offered up this year?  I leave all of the drum equipment stuff to the expert.

As you may have seen, there are already two prizes ready and waiting for forever homes in September.  The first is from Brian Charles at Zippah. That’s more of a silent auction item, so get your pens ready for that.

Our first raffle item came in almost as quickly as the request went out: two $50 gift cards to Redbones.

Redbones folks love bikes, and they’re neighbors with the Davis Square Theatre, so it makes all kinds of sense. I don’t know if it affected the decision to be involved or not, but I did mention a little factoid in my request: The Night Ridah! and I got married at Redbones. Then we had corn fritters.
