At least 6 to 8 weeks before your event is the right time for hosts to: provide event listings in local community online and printed calendars; a Facebook page for the event; a friendly email invitation sent to the whole mailing list; hand delivered invites to the local community. You could also get the local paper involved be suggesting a they do a feature story in this unique event. Here is one example, or you could work with local radio to get the word out.
Preparing for the event
Food - Whether this event is in a home, banquet hall, gym, theatre or church, food is a wonderful way to bring people together and a dessert buffet at intermission is about the best thing ever!
Decor, Seating and Lighting – can make a world of difference. A comfortable social and listening environment make everyone relax. Also think through how guests will view the stage and how well it will work for the performers. Unobstructed sight lines and stage lighting can help immensely.
Sound and Staging - Russ and band will come with their own instruments. When groups over 30 are envisioned please see the Tech Rider
Ideal stage size is a minimum of 20' X 15'. If it’s in a home things can be crammed in tighter.
The actual program is a mixture of music and storytelling and is best when a full 2 hours is allotted. This would include a short intermission. Length can easily be adjusted to adapt to time constraints and other locally organized elements in the event (shortest version 55 minutes).
The Music: A trio of musicians deliver and engaging array of creatively arranged traditional and original Christmas music. The audience is invited to sing along with the better-known tunes and will easily find themselves connecting with the new ones. Music on iTunes
The Story Telling is propelled by Justyn's skill with accents and hilarious commentary. He is completely captivating and, with a story as powerful as the first Christmas, it's an absolute delight.

The day of the event
Load in, set up and sound check 2 - 4 hours before event depending on event size. We have a helpful tech rider so we can make everything sound and look great.
We also have some hospitality information to help hosts what the performers will need.
Books and CDs will be made available for guests to purchase, so a product table will need be set up in an appropriate location with a volunteer to help guests with their purchases.
Justyn, Russ and the team have already put many hours of work and preparation into offering “Christmas Tales” to guests in your town. They can’t wait to partner with you in this celebration of Christmas.
