Booking and Performing at Fairs and Casinos" with Vinny Ribas Note: This will be 2 separate talks at one meeting.
Casinos: A casino can be a very different animal than any other kind of venue you've ever played. Did you know that you can be too good to play a casino? Did you know that your job is not always just to entertain the gamblers or the people in the bar? If you understand the nuances of these venues you have a much better chance of getting the gig, and definitely a greater chance of being asked back. Former casino entertainer and casino booking agent, Vinny Ribas, will walk you through how to get and keep these often- lucrative gigs.
Fairs: Playing fairs can be very lucrative, and you'll never play in a happier atmosphere! However, fairs have their own ins and outs just like any other kind of gig. And if you know what the fair really wants and you are successful at delivering it, it can quite easy to get booked by multiple other fairs. Former fair entertainer and NV State Fair Entertainment Director, Vinny Ribas, will walk you through the ins and outs of booking and playing the fair circuit.
