Attention Entertainers!

Promoting your shows and dances in the entertainers section of the Winter Texan Connection is a FREE service to all entertainers and bands who perform for the Winter Texan population of the Rio Grande Valley in Southern Texas.

All I ask in return is that you promote this website, at all of your performances.

I also offer paid advertising using the "sidebar banner spaces" you see on all of the high traffic pages.
I will rent these spaces to you on a monthly basis during the Winter Texan season.
Call me to discuss details ... 956-457-8600.

Please also consider using some of the other services I offer including CD/DVD duplication, photography and video, graphic design and website design and creation. See My Website

Guidelines for Entertainers performing at the Showcases

To be placed on the Showcase, please fill out the application and return that and the required payment to Billie Ferguson. Addresses are listed on the application. You will be placed on the Showcase when your application and remittance is received. Download a showcase application

The Day of the Showcase
We ask all entertainers and activity directors to come at 8 a.m so everyone is ready to go when the Showcase begins at 9 a.m. Check in with the M.C. and receive your information packet.

Your time spot will consist of 9 minutes. You will be timed and will be given a one minute warning at the end of 8 minutes so that you can prepare to end your act.

Please be ready to begin and end on time.

There will be a separate room for booking.

Remember, the Activity Directors are usually hiring for the following season. Most will have contracts with them but you may want to have some of your own.

You will have four foot of table space to display your information. You may bring brochures and CDs to distribute that day if you would like. If you have CDs, please realize that you are responsible for them. If they are left on the table, people think they are free and will pick them up.

You may visit with the people before and after the program and during the breaks. Please hold the conversation down to a minimum during the program to be courteous to the other performers.

Lunch will be available at a nominal charge and you will receive a coupon for 1 lunch when you check in.

If you have any further questions, please call Robert Ferguson at 574-361-2947.

The Winter Texan Connection has no affiliation or responsibility regarding the Entertainer showcases. I simply am providing the information.
