Camp Fuego Karaoke open to singer and musician members

Post by DeanisGatsby » Sun Jun 12, 2016 2:12 pm

Camp Fuego is opening to new members wishing to sing and play on our stage and dance on our bar. If you have gifts more along the lines of being a good bartender, that can work too. We host daily KARAOKE, an OPEN MIC, our TOP SHELF BAR, ORGANIC SNOW CONES and ITALIAN SODAS. We are recruiting veteran and new burners to help keep the stage sounding great with beautiful songs and music. One of our karaoke games include "Mo' Mercy or No Mercy Karaoke?". If the contestant chooses to sing Mo' Mercy Karaoke, talented singers stand by on 3 additional mics to jump in and sing the song with them to makes sure the 7:30 sector is filled ONLY with the most beautiful sounds of song. Ambitious singers can opt for No Mercy Karaoke, where they sing solo or duet and a panel of judges will either award them a prize for a beautiful song or CUT THEIR MIC and fade back to dance music if anything less. Oh yes, it can get brutal, but it's all love and fun on the playa!

Fuego invites 2016 Renaissance travelers into a free-thinking and personally expressive environment of striking art, prolific libations, songs of the heart and bold human acrobatics. Fuego, a life-sized flaming stretched barbed wire horse, halts would-be passers by with her prancing form and fire-blazing eyes and mane. Top shelf drinks, Italian sodas and organic snow cones pour at our very danceable bar with a "dancing" pole for the talented. Beautiful voices crone karaoke from the stage with 4 open mics. Bodies gyrate with DJ NIKO from Verbier, Switzerland, and display perfect human form on the 24/7 slack line. Minds, ages and cultures meld in the air-conditioned hookah lounge. Prizes are awarded for special performances on the Fuego Stage.

We're mostly in the SF Bay Area but also have people from Australia, England and Switzerland this year. We have special places reserved for you if you sing, play music, DJ, or have other use for an open mic and 2000 watts of sound. We have no fixed fees but are looking at about 40 members to split the costs of consumables (bar, snow cones, propane, grey water tank rental). Campers bring their own food and water. We don't have shifts or specific duties for our members, but each of our members takes pride in opening and working the bar and stage. If that doesn't sound like fun to you, Fuego is not the right camp. We can accommodate anything from tents to RVs, and will even be making Shiftpods available to members who want to go for luxury accommodations. If there are some elements of cross over that might make it a good fit, let's talk. And we're open to adding anything that would be cool!

Each year since Burning Man 2012, Fuego has located in the 7:30 Sector and we to be there again this year. We are proud to serve the playa's only organic snow cones (for which real fruit has died to bring the organic deliciousness) and organic Italian sodas. New for 2016 is our Air Conditioned Hooka Lounge and international DJ jams. Have mad heckling skills? Use them to bring strangers into the fold with a PA system that reaches far and wide.

Our public and interactive spaces include: 1) Fuego sculpture, a prancing (and burner-made) life-sized stretched barbed-wire horse with flames coming from his eyes and mane; 2) fireplace cauldron with chairs around it; 3) a 25' slack line (lit for 24/7 use); 4) an elevated and illuminated 20x20' tarp-floored pole tent housing the 10' bar for drinks and dancing upon and a separate snow cone bar and adjoining
tarp-floored dancing area and audience area; 5) an adjoining illuminated 16x30' tarp-floored party tent housing the 8x8' stage, 2000w sound system, 4 microphones, and adjoining tarp-floored dancing area and audience area; 6) a 50x20' audience and dance space in front of the pole and party tents; 7) an enclosed trailer 7x14' air-conditioned hookah lounge; 5) and bicycle parking racks. Non public spaces include a covered camp kitchen in a 20x30' space, including a gray water tank and some RVs, "Shiftpods", tents, hexayurts and shade structures and cars.

Camp Fuego is entirely committed to the 10 principles of Burning Man, has always gotten a green moop rating, and seeks only members likewise committed. If you are interested in joining, contact Gatsby at dean@deanhanley.net.

I'm hoping to visit, and will attempt to simultaneously enjoy as many things on this list as possible!

When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.
