Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goal in hosting Kelley Hunt and her band in Grand Marais is to treat our community to an evening that shines with Kelley's powerful stage presence and scorching Blues and R & B talent. The value to our community of seeing Kelley here again after fifteen years, or experiencing her for the first time, will be considerable. Our desired short-range outcome is a nicely filled-out auditorium of 100 concertgoers or more, and a percentage of 80% or higher rave reviews on post-event audience surveys. Our long-range desired outcome is to keep fulfilling and building upon our mission to present the highest quality eclectic live music in our region, by featuring artists like Kelley. North Shore Music Association will solicit feedback from our audience in the form of written surveys handed out to each concert attendee and collected after the performance. We will evaluate outcome through survey analysis, reviews in local and regional press and radio, verbal and written feedback from audience members, and an analysis of financial data based on number of tickets sold.
