Breaking the Ice Interview Workshop April 19

Most people would jump at the chance to interview their favorite band, but when they actually sit down to do the interview, sometimes the questions and answers fall flat. With a limited time constraint and the pressure of hitting it off with the musicians you admire, the nerves and lack of preparation might make you wish you had a do-over when all is said and done.

Rick Ele will help you get the most out of your interviews – with musicians or the chef at the new restaurant – at his Breaking the Ice Interview Workshop. The workshop will be held at the Sacramento Press office, from 6:30 – 8 p.m. Thursday, April 19.

Ele has been a DJ and radio host for 17 years at the freeform community radio station KDVS 90.3 FM in Davis. During his career, he has interviewed more than 100 bands, musicians, DIY record label honchos and authors.

The workshop will go over how to prepare for an interview, how to make the interviewee comfortable and how to come up with unique and creative questions that haven’t been asked hundreds of times.

Badges will be awarded to participants for attending the workshop. To become a verified community contributor, please bring a government-issued ID

Our office is located at 431 I St., Suite 107, in the Sacramento Valley Station. We are in the same building complex as Starbucks.

We recommend you find parking on the street, bike or take light rail, as the Amtrak parking lot charges $2 per half hour, and we cannot cover the cost of parking.

To RSVP for this workshop, email workshops@sacramentopress.com. If you RSVP and decide later not to attend, please send us an email to notify us that you will not be coming so we can have an accurate head count.

Thanks, and we hope to see you here!
