Entertainers are being sought for next year’s Langley Street Dance on July 14, 2018.

A “Request for Proposal” document was recently posted to the city’s website by the Langley Arts Commission. The commission is accepting applications from artists to perform at the annual street dance until Feb. 28, 2018.

The street dance is held annually on Second Street in front of the old Langley Firehouse from 7-10 p.m. The three-hour time slot will be divided between two groups of entertainers.

Local bands Krash Zen and Western Heroes provided tunes this past year.

The two entertainers booked this year will receive $1,000 for their performances. The groups are required to enter into a contract with the city and agree to abide by terms and conditions included in the request for proposal document.

An ad hoc selection panel named by the commission will select the two groups based on the following criteria: artistic quality and originality, danceability of music, demonstrated community performance exposure, proximity to Langley and presentation of application materials.

The commission is slated to submit recommendations to the Langley City Council by March 8, followed by a review on March 19.

Contracts will be signed on March 26.

The entertainers will be responsible for providing a sound technician and for setting up and breaking down their instruments and sound equipment. The entertainers are also expected to execute their music sets in a “timely and professional manner,” maintain an effective working relationship with the commission’s lead organizer and acquire rights and royalties for the music played.

The city also has a share of its own responsibilities. It will obtain a permit for the event, supply event marketing, posters, flyers and media material and provide a check for services to the entertainers after their performance. Langley is also not responsible for loss or damage to the entertainer’s materials or equipment.

Applications are to be submitted either by hand delivery to the front desk at city hall located on 112 Second Street, Langley emailed to planning@langleywa.org, or mailed to Brigid Reynolds, director of city planning at the City of Langley, PO Box 366, Langley, WA 98260.
