HOW TO SET UP A PEARL FOUNDATION LRC
1. Make sure you have reviewed the conditions
and can live with them.
2. BEFORE YOU SPEND ANY MONEY, send an e-mail query to email@example.com . This
is the first step in determining whether Janis will be able to do
this, so please include the following information:
Address where the living room concert will be held (we need at least
city, state or province, and country)
Name of person organizing the concert
Contact details for that person; phone numbers (work, home, mobile)
and e-mail address.
Preferred month (and preferred date, though we warn you that this
is usually not possible as we attempt to route LRC's around Janis'
other performance scheduling to hold down your costs)
Reason for the LRC, if any (anniversary, birthday), and whether
it is a surprise
3. Someone from our organization will get back to
you quickly and tell you whether any of this is feasible.
4. From there, you will pay for the concert through
check, money order, cashier's check, or wire transfer. (*You can pay by credit
card on line, but your card will be charged to Revenge Touring,
which is NOT tax-deductible. We will provide you with a tax letter
on Pearl Foundation stationary thanking you, which you may use in
support of your claim for deductibility.)
5. The monies will be deposited in the Pearl Foundation attorney's escrow
account, and held in escrow until the concert is over.
6. We will contact you a month before the concert
to discuss details (eg when Janis will arrive at the LRC, any special
song requests you may have etc.)
From there, it's smooth sailing!!
* Please note: Janis and her crew truly do need to stay in a hotel
or motel; they cannot stay in private homes. Janis is more than
happy to greet your guests at the door, arrive unannounced for a
surprise, etc. We strongly suggest you hold the concert before dinner,
if you are having a formal dinner affair. Janis and her crew will
not be able to stay for dinner, sorry!
Upon acceptance, Living Room Concert will take place within 1 year of purchase within the continental United States. * We are not currently accepting dates outside the United States, though you are welcome to make an offer.
Depending on Janis' schedule, purchaser is required to provide two to three hotel rooms the night before and/or night of the LRC for Janis and her crew. Depending on routing, Purchaser may also be required to provide two round trip airfares from Nashville or Janis' current point of origin. If Janis is driving, gasoline expenses will be covered instead.
Show will be coordinated with Janis' travel schedule whenever possible; we will work with you to find a mutually agreeable date.
Purchaser may not sell tickets to this event or charge participants in any way, nor distribute copies of this show to any entity without specific written permission. Purchaser must be willing to sign a contract to this and various other effects before this event can take place. Violation of this clause will result in cancellation of the concert with no prejudice to the rights of Janis Ian or The Pearl Foundation; in the event of such a violation, all monies will be kept by the Pearl Foundation and no refund will be accorded.
A maximum of 40 people may be invited, including those living in the household and catering staff. We reserve the right, in our sole judgement, to refuse any offers, without explanation or obligation.
