Subject: Le QuecumBar Django January festival

Hope you all enjoyed your summer holidays and welcome back.


We have a great weekend coming up and hope to see some of you here relaxing and enjoying some fine live music.



Django Reinhardts 100th Birthday would have been 23 January 2010


So of course we have to do something very special - we are in the process of planning a 9 day festival from Sunday 17th to Monday 25th January inc, this will be a non profit event as we have to get all the musicians here from all over Europe and of course as usual they only earn the ticket money from our events.


We will be having high profile Gypsy and non Gypsy performers playing every night

We will also be setting up workshops for them here and around London


This will be the first event of its kind in London


The EU commission have pledged their support in helping us produce a 2/3 commemorative cd of the highlights of the 9 days which is very exciting for us - we are taking advance orders already on info_at_leqrecords_dot_com


We are also trying to negotiate a limited number of special room rates with a local hotel to help customers who live further afield and would like to stay over and drink as little.


As you know I run QuecumBar alone and Monika and Kevin work usually without reward to keep Le Q Records going so we are also seeking volunteer sponsors to assist with printing pr marketing and anything else related to this project putting up posters distributing leaflets etc or anything you can think of to help make this event a great success - Tickets of course will be limited because of space here to 70 per night and customers will be required to dine as that is the only way we can earn any revenue for the venue.


We have had several fans propose £250 cash or services (which of course is tax deductable if you have a business) in sponsorship to help with musicians costs in getting to uk and helping towards their playing fees - in exchange we will add their names to all our information going to press and all web site content plus a VIP membership to Le QuecumBar for 2 years and preferential seating at any of the concerts for arrivals before 7.30


As always we thank you for your support all year round and hope to see you soon as the summer has been very quiet for us and musicians alike and as always support of live music is imperative to keep it available and alive.

Thank you Sylvia Monika and Kevin
