Sponsor a Song

CalBal 2023 will feature FOUR night of live music from bandleaders Michael Gamble, Keenan McKenzie, and Jonathan Stout PLUS a cadre of our favorite players from near and far.

That's about nine hours of live music or approximately 120 songs over the entire weekend.

For a single night of live music, it costs between $2700 and $6800 just to pay the band (depending on the size)—that DOES NOT include expenses like  musician travel, lodging, and food, or the cost of things like sound engineering, lighting, or videography.

When you sponsor a song, you're sponsoring the ability of CalBal to hire incredible artists and bring them to California from around the country, and you're also telling us that we should keep doing this in the future.

In addition to our regular sponsor perks, as a song sponsor you will have the option to choose a specific song to sponsor during the weekend (first-come, first-served) and our bandleader will read a message of your choosing immediately prior to your sponsored song. We estimate that song choices will be available between Dec 15 2022 and Jan 12, 2023.
