Jamelle describes how this all came about….
My husband, John Bejarano, is turning 50 in November. I asked him what special activity he would like to do for his birthday. After some thought, he said he would love to see his favorite three bands in concert, but as Northern Kind is from Leceister, England, Future Perfect is from Wales, and Johan Baeckström is from Sweden it wasn’t likely that they would play together in November. The three bands have not previously had a group concert. Also, we are in California. I immediately told him I would make it happen. I started on the journey of trying to put together a concert of the three bands from different continents in a country an ocean away from our home. John is a large synthpop fan and was already Facebook friends of the three bands. He reached out to them and they all rapidly agreed to be part of the concert. It was a very exciting start to this plan.
We decided to call the concert eLectronic singularity. The name of the concert represents electronic for electronic music, singularity because it is a one time event, and the L in eLectronic is the only letter capitalized and it represents the Roman Numeral for 50. I reached out to the bands to determine what they need for the concert in equipment and space, and fan size and began my long search for a venue. I was impressed by the newly refurbished Nambucca in London and booked the concert for Nov 15, 2019. Next step was to find a way to sell and distribute tickets. This was a challenge but determined that Eventbrite.UK would be a good fit. The concert is also listed on Evensi. I am enjoying my challenge and sharp learning curve of putting together an international concert of three fabulous bands. As an Accounts Payable Director, I never expected to become an international concert promoter.
