We know everyone is excited about WCNA 37, and we are happy to announce that the registration and hotel accommodations website will go live on Monday, 25 September 2017 at 10:00 am PDT! Links will be posted at www.na.org/?ID=wcna-index
There are many advantages to pre-registering, and one incentive is that all members who pre-register by 31 July 2018 (without cancellation) will be entered in a drawing for two (2) full convention packages, including registration and all WCNA special event tickets! (Does not include pre-reg merchandise.)
While we realize many people are accustomed to booking hotel rooms on their own, it really helps WCNA when you book rooms in our room block. As an encouragement to pre-register and book rooms in our room block, if you do so by 31 July 2018 (without cancellation), you will be automatically entered into a drawing for a free, three-night stay at one of the WCNA hotels. We will randomly select two pre-registrants and cover their room and tax charges for the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights of WCNA.
We are excited about having Mike Zito & Anders Osborne for the Thursday afternoon Blues Luncheon. They are a powerful blues force that will surely move your soles and your souls. We’ll provide more details about Zito and Osborne on the Convention Events pages; in the meantime, you can check out one of their videos at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WnAo4V8T7o
Join us for the Friday morning Jazz Brunch with Keiko Matsui and Euge Groove. Matsui is an internationally acclaimed pianist and composer who will pair up with veteran smooth jazz saxophonist Euge Groove. Check out these remarkable artists at www.keikomatsui.com and www.eugegroove.com and on our Convention Events pages.
Alonzo Bodden will headline the Saturday night Comedy Show, and he’ll be bringing along a few of his hilarious friends, too. Bodden is well known for his cynically good-natured social and political humor and as the winner of Last Comic Standing. Check him out at www.alonzobodden.com.
We’ve also confirmed artists for two coffeehouse events: Nakia and the Blues Grifters and Orchestra Fuego.
We’re very close to finalizing additional performers for the comedy show and concert, so we’ll provide updated information as it becomes available—but you need not wait to register. Special event seating assignments are based on your pre-registration date, not by the date you purchase the tickets. The key to getting the best seats is to register early.
