HIATVS is an awesome rock-n-roll cover band from Madison WI, focusing on outrageously entertaining house concert performances, with lots of stage antics and popular cover songs. Never dull. Always fun.

The house concert performance will be at singer/songwriter Stefan Chandler's house in Madison WI (west side) on Saturday November 17th, 2012 from 6 to 10 PM.

RSVP window closes on Rocktober 31, so don't delay!

6 to 7 PM: Social Hour (with pizza!)

7 to 8 PM: Singer/Songwriter Stefan Chandler (http://stefanchandler.com)

8 to 10 PM: Madison Fun Rock Power Trio HIATVS (http://hiatusrocknroll.com).

The music, food, drink, bathrooms, and parking are all hassle free and awesome.

Deets and directions provided when you RSVP.

If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask: info@cactusjoeproductions.com

HIATVS does a decent job of rock-n-rolling and our friends and fans agree. We do a lot to create a fun social musical experience.

That is why HIATVS refuses to play at crappy dive bars everyone hates. Instead, we host our own social rock-n-roll house concerts and it has become increasingly successful because people enjoy the friendly, warm and inviting house party environment, the free food and drink, and the ease of parking etc.

At our house concert on Saturday 11/17/12, instead of the usual BYOB and potluck format, we are asking for a suggested donation of $5 from everyone to underwrite the all-you-can-consume food and drink we are going to supply. It's a small price to pay for the awesome value of a HIATVS ROCK-N-ROLL HOUSE CONCERT.

But the beauty of this project is that you don't have to agree with us on that.

Maybe you don't think there is any value in a rock-n-roll house concert. In that case, you don't donate or participate. And that's actually AWESOME.

We only want people at the house concerts who want to be there. It makes it more fun for everyone, including the band members, who incidentally don't get paid anything from the suggested donations. It all goes to the party, food, and drink. Of course, we partake of the festivities along with everyone else.

But there is VALUE to the band in playing a show to a house FULL of happy people who all truly want to be there to have a good time. We are all invested in the FUN and there to enjoy ourselves. We don't need money if we have that kind of VALUE.

I hope that makes sense and I hope you'll come enjoy a rock-n-roll house concert with us on November 17th.

Don't be shy. Lots of new people come to HIATVS house concerts and you will make tons of new fun friends. No haters allowed!

Your small donation means we can keep these fun music shows going long into the future.

If you want to know more about HIATVS' rock-n-roll music, simply visit http://hiatusrocknroll.com. Our set list of cover songs is there (requires SPOTIFY) along with lots of other information.

We'll give you the house concert address (in Madison WI) when you RSVP with your donation. No RSVPs will be accepted after Rocktober 31, because we need a couple weeks to organize and plan the rockstravaganza.

So decide and RSVP early!

You know how awesome our house concerts can be. Tell some friends, would ya?

Thanks!

HIATVS

Risks and challenges

Performance: This project is a musical performance by Madison WI area musicians. The artists have already committed to perform this date and location. If for some reason the show is canceled, everyone will be refunded.

Sound System: HIATVS has a sound system designed for low volume house concert performances. This includes an electronic drum kit (the main hurdle to volume control is drums!).

Overhead: House concerts are underwritten by the audience. We don't want to put on a show to an empty house. So this underwriting approach is win-win. The risk here is that we will have an insufficient draw to achieve the funding goal. If that happens, the performance will be canceled and no one will be charged.
