What We Want for Coffeehouse

We want Liberty’s finest and most creative musical performances, videos, skits and whatever else you can dream up. You can draw inpiration from some of the finest Christmas movies out there, such as Elf, Home Alone, and other holiday favorites. Most importantly, we want your act to be as over the top Christmas-y as possible. If you have questions, just ask us!

Musical Acts

  • Drum kit + cymbals will be provided; you may bring your own snare (in an effort to save time, you will need to use the provided drum kit)
  • Provide all other instruments: amps, guitars, keyboards, cables, etc.
  • You may not sing to a track
  • No single acapella performances
  • Everyone from your group/act must be present at the tryout
  • Sign-ups during tryouts are first-come, first-serve
  • Your entire group must be present before you can sign-up, and we do not reserve specific timeslots
  • Individuals in multiple acts inhibit the chances of each of those acts getting into Coffeehouse (i.e. same lead singer in 2 or more acts, same bassist in multiple acts, etc.)
  • We encourage all solo instrumentalists to add other performers to your tryout

Video Submissions

  • Videos can be as long as 5-7 minutes (or as short as you would like)
  • Bring final submitted copy on a flashdrive or CD by 10 PM on the last day of tryouts (Friday, November 14)
  • Video should be saved as a .mov file, 16x9, and DVCPRO720p60. 
  • Submit videos to the Student Activities Office M-F 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. or during tryouts between 5 - 10 p.m.
  • Any videos containing footage of illegal or unlawful activity will not be considered for the show (i.e. walking on railroad tracks, breaking the Liberty Way, etc).

Drama/Other

  • Come prepared (i.e. lines memorized, all group members present, music formatted as it would be for a performance)
  • Costumes and large stage props are not necessary for auditions

Who Can Tryout?

  • Groups of 3 or less: ALL must be current Liberty students
  • Groups of 4 or more: must be 75% current Liberty students

Group Name/Song Title?
When you sign-up to tryout we will be asking for your performing group's name as well as your act/song title, so start brainstorming now!
