    OK.....I have some comments..............

    Some of the best shows I remember, from the last couple of years were:
    1964...The Tribute ----- America ----- The Lettermen.

    These, and several other "oldies acts," appeared to sell many tickets.

    I would guess that the Renaissance staff and board should have a pretty good idea of what types of shows have sold well in the past.

    Aside from a few ads in newspapers (and possibly on radio?), where is the advertising?
    It seems that most often, there isn't much advertising done until the preceding week of the show.....especially on TV.

    Look at the upcoming Grass Roots concert in late January. I know this is a Chamber of Commerce event, but tickets are for sale to the general public. I don't think very many people are even aware of this concert.....at least noone I've spoken with. I have heard Rob Grill's Grass Roots numerous times in the past; I shall come to see and hear them again. They should certainly appeal to most baby boomers and younger....including anyone who likes Top 40 oldies.

    A look at the available seats on the ticketing page indicates that not many seats have been sold so far. Many of the UNavailable seats are most likely seats that the chamber has reserved. And...this concert is only 4 weeks away. Sad!!
