These shows are Fly-on-the-Wall, Sneak-a-Peek, DHC-Does-a-Dress-Test, Beta-Testing, Live-Streaming dress-rehearsals for my live show Sat. Apr. 13th at the Altamont Theatre in Asheville, NC.
If you can come to the Live show, Apr 13 in Asheville, NC – that’s GREAT – because it’s in one of the sweetest little listening rooms in the whole USofA. But if you’re just too far away, then, fine … I will come right into your livingroom.
All you need is high-speed internet and a computer monitor. There’s nothing to download.
Wanna know what you get?
GENERAL ADMISSION: $6 Gets you (and a friend, if you’d like) in to the show via your computer screen. And in those interactive moments of the show you’ll be able to interact via real-time text chat.
VIP TIX: $12 If you choose VIP tix, I’ll actually see you on my screen, and in those moments when I talk with the audience (as I often do!) you’ll be able to respond live, and I’ll hear you. So, while ALL ticket-buyers will see the SHOW – if you buy VIP tix, I’ll also see & hear YOU! So it’s like we’re really in the same room together. … somewhere in the ether.
GROUP BROADCAST: $12 If you want to have a small party – the group broadcast ticket lets you ‘broadcast’ via a single computer to up to 10 people and to interact with me via real-time text chat.

Read more about how it all happened (“The Recording Conundrum” blogpost), and how we came up with the name (“What would a Beta-testing Live-Streamed Dress-Rehearsal be called?” blogpost) — or watch some of the studio video tests we’re doing below.
Video Studio Tests
I’ll be adding more videos in the coming weeks as I record them. Here’s one of the first studio tests. Like all my shows and albums, this one is a combination of many different kinds of music: serious, off-the-wall, and tender.
Cirque du Lune
This video is a short version of “Cirque du Lune” about the adventures of Doña Quixota – a female Don Quixote.
One thing I learned from this test was that I need to tweak the sound coming from the looper so the background loops don’t overpower the melody-playing. That was a great improvement over Test #1, where I learned that tripping over the cables isn’t as much fun as you’d think.
Stay tuned for more videos as I get them done ….
I love your taking the harp where it has never flown before. I wonder if the background mechanics are louder than the harp? I would love to hear more of the harp, and less of the repetitive background. Still lovely and enjoying all the videos and blog written by you. Thank you and Many Blessings! Sherj
Thanks so much Sherj! That was exactly part of what the test was about – thanks for pointing it out! One of the things I learned from the test was that the background was too loud. And that kind of balance is one of the things I’ll be working on between now and when we do the actual LiveStream shows. Thanks so much for noticing and saying something about it! – Deborah
still as fab a player and as gorgeous as ever xx
Why, thank you kindly, sir!! (She said, fluttering her fan … and eyelashes … though one can’t really see the eyelashes … which is why the fan becomes so important)
I agree with Sherj about the sound level of the background music sv the harp– more harp. I’m not sure you want comments about apparel but since this is a “dress” rehearsal, a comment about attire. I found the striped shirt a bit overpowering. How about a solid colored top with sequins or beads to “set it off” ? Great to know that you are always working to improve y our act, which is a hard thing to do, because it is great already.
I LOVE that I’m already getting critique advice on apparel and sound! An added benefit I never thought about! I was trying to keep this event casual but … hmmmm…. maybe I should glam it up?
…. or perhaps onstage costume changes?
…. I’ll put that all in my thinking cap. (Oh … but where did I put that cap)?
I’m sitting here on a drab gray day, and out of the blue, your email arrives and my afternoons brightens beyond belief! I have floated away for a few brief moments and I do so appreciate your willingness to include us, in your melodies where ever they are taking you…..
Thanks, Cherie! It’s making it all so much more fun being able to share it!
The more I hear about this, the more I’m thinking about on-stage costume changes! Woodnymph, eh? Do they also have Subwaynymphs?
