A social open stage to sing (and play) with a real band!
REMEMBER KARAOKE? WELL FORGET IT!
Palco Sempione, our social open stage, is different and more than this.
We'll set up all we need in order to let you know when and where will take place the next show of the No Singer Band, the glorious band with no singer, that needs your help and ask people and pedestrian passing through to get in.
NO SINGER BAND is a band composed of 4 super musicians (bass, drums,
electric guitars and keyboards) whose singer never performs at concerts.
Every time, then, musicians have to ask for the help of passers-by.
Everyone can either go on the spot, raise their hand, or book their performance online.
The band plays, the singer sings. But not only.
Since the musicians of this band are good but lazy, if there is someone who knows and wants to play a song, they gladly give it to the instrument.
So if a guitarist passes, he can play the guitar.
If a drummer passes, he can play the drum.
And so on.
The No Singer Band performs four times a year (May, June, July and September) at the Locanda alla Mano in Milan, a beautiful outdoor setting in the heart of Sempione Park. The idea is to make it a band available to perform wherever there is a stage or people who want to sing. And therefore square parties, parties, private parties, and even conventions.
The evenings can be themed on some kind or absolutely open, with repertoire created by the demands of those who want to perform greatest hits ever (no worries, the No Singer Band knows them all!).
What we need is therefore a site that always signals the dates of the NSB and give the opportunity to those who want to book their online performance until exhausted seats, which is, however, half of the evening will be dedicated to those who will be doing uplifting their hand, even without online reservation.

We have already organized 5 Palco Sempione and every time we see the same miracle: at the beginning there is no one going to the stage, in the end we struggle to get them down :-)
We are convinced that this simple format of a "social band" available to those who want to sing, if appropriately organized and managed, can have a great follow up and give great satisfaction.
