Big Gig FAQ’s

What is The Big Gig?

The BIG GIG is a live performance event that takes place at the end of every semester.  After months of rehearsal, students from our Cadets Plus, Get Started, Core and Adult Night Sessions, jam out some of their favorite tunes on stage.

I’m in a band...how early should I show up before my scheduled Session at The Big Gig?

Please show up 30 minutes before your scheduled Session at The Big Gig. Full schedule listed below!

Where are the venues?

The Jersey Shore Arts Center is located at 66 South Main Street in Ocean Grove and The Saint is located at 601 Main Street in Asbury Park.

What should I do when I show up to the venue?

What should I wear?

Anything you’re comfortable in!

Are you performing? here is YOUR BIG GIG CHECKLIST:

  • Drummers: Warm up off-stage (in green room) on a quiet drum pad, have drumsticks/stick bag in hand (2 pairs of sticks recommended in case you drop one), ear plugs, percussion, and anything else you need ready to go. Look at the drummer’s setup before you and make a mental note of what setup changes need to be made (seat height, cymbal heights/angles, snare height, toms).  Make your own checklist.

  • Bassists: Warm up off-stage, tune your bass off-stage in advance no more than 5 minutes before, have your guitar, strap, pedal board, picks, ear plugs, and anything else you need ready to go. Make your own checklist.

  • Guitarists: Warm up off-stage, tune your guitar off-stage in advance no more than 5 minutes before, have your guitar, strap, pedal board, capos, picks, ear plugs, and anything else you need ready to go. Make your own checklist.

  • Pianists: Lakehouse keyboard is provided, ear plugs, etc. If you wish to bring your own, let your teacher know.  If so, remember to bring your keyboard, power adapter and any cables required for your keyboard. Make your own checklist.

  • Vocalists: Warm up your voice off-stage, have a bottle of water in hand for the stage, ear plugs, etc.
