Q: Which students does The Jellyfish Project's assembly target?
A: The Jellyfish Project is designed to be presented to middle school and high school students of any grade and background. The material is relatively simple and the music can be universally appreciated. It’s up to the principal to decide who is in the audience.
Q: Our school doesn't have a theatre, can we still have The Jellyfish Project here?
A: Absolutely! We’ll set up in any room you have. We’ve played small multi-purpose rooms, band rooms, theatres and gymnasiums. We have all our own sound gear and we know how to operate it.
Q: How large of an audience does the assembly require?
A: Ultimately, it’s up to the band. The Jellyfish Project assembly has been presented to anywhere from 60 to 1300 students at a time. However, we generally ask that the audience is a minimum of 400 students.
Q: How long is a Jellyfish Project assembly?
A: Sessions are typically 75 minutes which breaks down to a 30-minute performance, a 35-minute presentation, and a 10-minute question and answer period. A band may also be willing to do two assemblies at a school in one day.
Q: How long does it take the band to set up/tear down?
A: It takes the band about 90 minutes to set up and about 60 minutes to tear everything down.
Q: Is it really free?
A: Yes, the program is free of charge. However, if your school is able to make a donation of any size, it is most appreciated. Donations can be made out to 'The Jellyfish Project Society' and given to the band at the time of the event, or mailed to the address on our donation page. Your donation helps to compensate the band for their time, talent, and travel expenses.
Q: I'm a musician. How can my band or I get involved?
A: Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and introduce yourself. We’d love to hear from you!
