DIFFERENCES IN SEATING TYPES
Putting on these shows isn't particularly profitable. "Angel" seating exists because some of our patrons want to help us continue to present shows and are willing to kick in a little extra. In exchange for that, we give 'em the best seats in the house. Generally, there aren't really any "bad" seats at our venues, but "Angel" seating more or less guarantees that if anyone is going to be sweated or spittled upon by the performer, that person will be you.
THE FLYING UNDER RADAR MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE
If you attend one of our concerts and find it vile and/or loathsome, all you need to do is compose a cogent 250 word essay explaining what it was that got such a bee in your bonnet and email it to us within 36 hours of the concert and your money will be grudgingly refunded.
We co-present many of our shows with other folks, including Sandy & Kathy Martin of Kicking & Screaming, Ray Massucco of Vermont Festivals, LLC and Josh Hearne of Barnaby's Presents. We partner with WOOL 100.1 FM "Black Sheep Radio" on many of our shows http://www.wool.fm. Vermont Festivals, LLC now produces the Roots on the River festival http://www.rootsontheriver.com which we originally founded in 2000. We have no control over it now, except that we rent the name to VTF for, like, a dollar a year. So we can always grab the name back. Now THAT'S power!
THE BABOSIAN ENIGMA
Voice of Radar Under Flying is Dr. H.M. Babosa, whose syntax derived originally from attempted avoidance of use of apostrophes in email missives was. Since then, Dr. Babosa his own persona rather creepily has developed, and would like he to your friend be on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000832601441
