What’s the magic age to….

What’s the age in which you let your oldest babysit the younger sibling(s)? Is there a magic number? I am going to go with maturity and behavior of younger siblings.

Does it depend on how many kids? I have 2 kids 4 years apart, one boy one girl. I let my oldest stay home with the youngest probably at 11 years old. Then there’s your families with 3 and 4 kids. What if they are well behaved children in general? Can’t the 11 year old watch the 8,6 and 4 year old?

Oh and to clarify I am talking about a span of 1 to 2 hours, not all day.

Want to learn the concert business? Maybe we have a job for you.


Vickie and I are looking for someone who wants to learn the concert business and is willing to work at it with determined dedication. We’re a very small company. Everybody does everything, from booking to promotion to customer support to data entry to house and stage management to washing towels and shopping for the artists’ back-stage goodies. So will you.

This is not an easy job. Hours vary from week to week. Priorities can change suddenly without warning. No matter how much you prepare, the unexpected always happens. And sometimes it all seems to be going terribly wrong.

If you are an excellent communicator, great with people, thrive on challenge, love to learn, love music, embrace the unknown and can find clever ways to get stuff done with almost no supervision, this could be the job for you. It’s not an internship. You’ll get paid.

Watch our video (below) and get a taste of what it’s like to put on an outdoor concert (most of our shows are not outdoors, but it’s the only video we have that shows some of the work we do behind the scenes).

CLICK HERE. Check the box that says, “I want to be on your Street Team” (Oh, did we say you’ll be managing a street team too?) and tell us why you want to learn the concert business. We’ll get back to you.

Sharon and Leo Have Some Nice Things To Say

Hey Joey!
    Just wanted to drop a quick note to thank you for keeping our spirits up all winter!  …wicked winter that it was!  (Yep..we had snow today, April 23..) Even seeing our favorite vacation spots under the snow made us happy.  Everyday after shoveling we would come in and read your daily blog. We would “catch-up” on news, see what Sista Felicia was cooking, and plan new places to go on our next visit.
