stix starter project

December 1 - January 31

Rallying our local music scene while funding the launch of "Stix Together"

PAY WHAT YOU CAN PRICING - for all live music pre-paid bookings through 1/31/24 (live music for all!)

10% OFF ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR LIVE SHOWS - 1, 2, or 4 monthly live music sets from our solo and duo options ...our best deal ever for local live music!

LIVESTREAMS & ONLINE CHATS - Acoustic guitar with Doug, chats with fans, and a return of Mellow Marimba streams!

ADVERTISING & PARTNERSHIP - Through tips, bookings, sponsorships, and input, you'll be a VIP to the development & launch of our new band "Stix Together" and get access to supporter rewards as we hit our goals!


We are committed to bringing music to Whitley County, the greater region, and across the United States as we grow. In tandem, we are restarting our livestreaming to serve those who may not be able to attend a live show or want to be part of our online fan family. All financial goals outlined are to cover EXPENSES - we do not profit on anything from at least the first $6200 generated (and likely much more than that)! Our planned activities just within the STIX STARTER 2-month timeframe includes:

**Developing ideas for Stix Together as a band that will include marimba, hammered dulcimer, percussion, and other instruments as we collaborate with musicians (This band will likely play 80s-current pop/rock covers with the hopes of creating original work in the future. The heart of the band is friendship, fun, and community-building.) Development includes proper branding, merch inventory, business activities, and work on the music itself.

**Creating a Facebook page and group to gather and organize other local musicians for support, collaboration, and an online resource for Whitley County to discover live music.

**Making our live work accessible to any budget with the help of tips, sponsorships, and advertising (your support makes the “pay what you can” and subscription options possible!)

**Attending the Association of Performing Arts Professionals (APAP) conference in New York City to gather industry knowledge and network with artists, presenters, and industry experts (we can then bring this back to the community and share to grow our economy and music ecology together!)

**Investing in necessities to move forward such as a new PA system, restocking inventory for a hammered dulcimer service no one else offers, and mentorship in areas such as vocal coaching, music engineering education, etc.

Your support of this work is critical for its success and we look forward to thanking you in meaningful ways through merch perks (for fans), logo placement and advertising (for sponsor business partners), and genuine personal engagement with our fan family!
