Make Music Topanga


Who “runs” Make Music Topanga, exactly?

April 17, 2021

Nationally, Make Music Day is sponsored by the NAMM Foundation and there is a team of organizers who provide support and assets to all the cities that want to participate.

Locally, it is 100% volunteer-run…so all the ‘ideas’ are pure Topanga.

Our volunteer steering committee is all Topanga residents. Our role is publicity about signing up and attending, communication, “match-making” between venues and artists (when additional help is needed), and various logistical stuff.

Our venues/locations are all Opt-In and can request specific performers and curate the vibe of the music at their location for the day. Each location “runs” its own performance schedule — and is responsible for all equipment provided, communication with the performers about the time to arrive, etc.

The core organizers are always here to provide guidance on making arrangements and securing performers, but alas, none of the steering committee members are running to Topanga Lumber to get you an extra extension cord on the day.
