Wow! Can you believe it’s been 20 years? I can’t. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Say Hi, I’ll be performing every Say Hi and Say Hi To Your Mom record for you via a series of Living Zoom Shows. As always, each of these shows will be limited to 50 tickets so that we can hang out, be pals and chat between songs. I’ll also do a bunch of (any album) requests every night so that you can experience a plethora of your favorite songs no matter which show(s) you decide to attend. Feeling especially nostalgic and excited? Go ahead and snag a SEASON PASS, which will get you access to all 24 shows (even where the individual tickets have sold out).

(1) ZOOM SHOWS? WHAT’S THAT, NOW?
In late 2020, a strange thing happened. Months into a worldwide pandemic, where live music was not a possibility, an entire Say Hi tour was converted from 42 Living ROOM shows into 42 Living ZOOM shows. Mood lighting, a crisp DSLR camera and hi-fidelity microphone / preamp setup were assembled and 30-50 people hung out in private Zoom sessions each night. The mood was jovial and all involved were friendly. Jokes and stories were exchanged and songs from the whole Say Hi and Say Hi To Your Mom catalog were played in a 100% all-request format. Everyone in attendance had the best seat and best sound in the house. It was different than the livestreams you’d seen on Twitch, Facebook, Bandcamp or YouTube, because every night was an intimate and friendly two-way gathering instead of a one-sided performance into the cold digital void. In the end, what seemed unremarkable on paper ended up being far more engaging, hospitable and “real” than what tends to happen even at real life shows. It’s true, read the comments on the Say Hi social media pages, or ask anyone who was in attendance!

(2) BUYING TICKETS
You've got two choices here, and there is no wrong answer. As always, it’s appreciated if you purchase a ticket for each person who will be attending (much like how it works at a real-world venue). However, this can get expensive quickly, so there is nothing wrong with buying one ticket if that’s what you can afford. The important thing to remember is that each ticket ORDER will be good for a SINGLE SCREEN login. This means that if you place a single order for four tickets, all four of those people will need to watch from the same screen, (it won’t be possible to split your order into multiple logins, so please plan accordingly). The name you use to purchase tickets will be the name on the guest list, so kindly use that name when logging on to Zoom so we can check you off the guest list as you arrive. You’ll get an email with instructions about how to download your ticket with the Zoom link after the purchase is complete. Please don’t share this info with anyone. It’s just for you. [TIP: If you’d like access to multiple Zoom logins, you’ll need to place multiple orders instead of buying multiple tickets in the same order.]

(3) DAY OF THE SHOW
If you're new to using Zoom, you can learn some of the basics here. We’ll open the Zoom waiting room about 30 minutes before the published showtime. You can log in to the show any time during that 30 minute, pre-show window. AGAIN, PLEASE BE SURE THAT YOUR ZOOM DISPLAY NAME MATCHES THE NAME ON YOUR TICKET ORDER. If you try to login with something like “IPAD” we won’t be able to grant you access. Once inside, feel free to chat with other attendees or hang out and wait for the show to start (we do request that you keep your mics muted, and instead use the text-chat). If you arrive after the start of the show, we’ll wait until a break between songs to let you in. Also, do double check that your time zone and daylight-saving conversion is correct. It would be a bummer if you tried to log-in after the show is done. The show will start right on time, FYI, so don't be late. [TIP: All of the Early Shows open  at 2:30PM PACIFIC, 3:30PM MOUNTAIN, 4:30PM CENTRAL, 5:30PM EASTERN & all of the Late Shows open at 6:30PM PACIFIC, 7:30PM MOUNTAIN, 8:30PM CENTRAL, 9:30 EASTERN.]

(4) VIDEO ON / VIDEO OFF
You don’t have to be on screen if you don’t want to, but we discovered it ends up being a lot more fun for everyone involved if you turn your video on. You can look at it this way: with your video off, it’s like watching from the last row seats of a stadium. With your video on, it’s like being on stage and hanging out with the band. Also, song-request priority will always be given to people with their video on. [TIP: if you REALLY want to make sure your song request gets played, consider making a creative sign with the title of the song that you can hold up to the camera when it’s time for song requests.]

(5) AUDIO STUFF / CHAT STUFF
Your mic-audio will be off by default and we ask that you keep it off until you’re specifically (and individually) asked to unmute yourself for a song request or question. Please don’t unmute yourself without being invited to do so, as it ends up causing the chaos and confusion of a bunch of people simultaneously trying to talk over each other. HOWEVER, you’re welcome (and encouraged) to use the in-Zoom chat window as much as you’d like to make song requests, tell jokes, ask questions or compliment people on their pets. No private messages please. It’s way more fun if everyone in attendance can participate in the chat together.

(6) VIEW STUFF
Within Zoom, you have the option to view the show however you want. “Speaker View" will make Eric / Say Hi the only window visible on your end. Gallery View shows everyone’s window. Gallery View might not be a great way to watch since we’ll have up to 50 guests, the windows will be pretty small and you won’t get the full “Say Hi” experience. However, it can feel more like you’re hanging out with the other participants, which can be cool too. The possibilities are endless! Finally, a lot a care went into making the sure the broadcast audio is top notch, so we also recommend using a good pair of headphones or a proper sound system (instead of your built-in computer speakers) for maximum enjoyment. [TIP: many people enjoy beaming the Zoom video to their television via HDMI, AirPlay or the like].

(7) BE COOL
Please be respectful of the show and the other guests. It would be great if you showed the same courtesy you would show if you were visiting someone's house. Please don’t attempt the kind of weird stuff that might distract the performer or other guests during the show. If you do attempt anything offensive, overtly distracting or inappropriate, we’ll remove you from the show without a refund.

(8) A NOTE ABOUT RESALE
While refunds are not possible, you're welcome to sell your tickets at face value if you can no longer attend. HOWEVER, please don't try to sell your tickets at higher than face value. If we encounter evidence of this sort of thing, your tickets will be cancelled (without a refund). Apologies for the strict policy here, but scalping isn't nice, you know?

(9) QUESTIONS?
Got any questions that aren’t addressed above? Please send an email to howdy@ilikesayhi.com at least 24 hours before the show (please understand it’s unlikely we’ll be able to respond to inquiries sent close to showtime or during the show). Also, would you kindly avoid asking questions via social media direct messages? (These aren’t checked very often).

That’s it! Thanks again for your support and we’ll see you at the 20TH ANNIVERSARY LIVING ZOOM SHOWS!
