What:

The "Rock 'N' Roll New Orleans Marathon and Half-Marathon" is taking place on Sunday February 5th.  The Disco Amigos have been asked to be one of many Cheer Squad's along the route to encourage the runners on as they pass by.

We are stationed at the corner of Esplanade and Chartres St (same as last year), setup some production effects and play music and we dance the morning away and cheer on these Rock N Roll Marathoners (and show them what real music is like!).  We'll have some breakfast foodies and drinks as well to keep us well energized.

Each Cheer Squad receives a minimum cash donation of $100-$200, plus the opportunity to win other cash prizes for the Cheer Squad with the most spirit.  First place prize is $700!!!  There will be tons of media coverage as well.

New for this year: We've been asked to host a "keg party" along the route!  We've made a deal with our friends at Second Line Brewing, and we'll have a keg of Batture Ale and Second Line IPA for the runners and cheerers. 

The runners are really engaged and inspirational and greatly appreciate our being there to cheer them on!  Just check out this article from last year's event:

When:

Our call time is at 5:45 AM (yes, AM) and the first runner is scheduled to pass by around 7AM, with the last runner to pass around 11AM.  After the last runner, we can move the up to City Park and join the after-party there.

Who:

All performers, support and friends are invited to attend and perform and cheer.

Uniforms:

Guys: red button up shirt, black vest, black disco pants and accouterments (sash, headwear, etc.)

Gals: Silver disco dress and accoutrements

Support / Others: Disco Amigos T-shirt and/or Disco Outfits

Cheer Squads are graded on their uniformity in costume, so I think we got this one nailed down!

Performances:

We'll be doing a plethora of performances and line dances and just having a party!

Setup Help

We could use a couple of people to help with setting up our station, getting food & drinks to the site, and making signs.  If you're willing to help out, please send an email directly to jerry.lenaz@discoamigos.com or call him at 504.296.3959.  We can do a lot of the prep stuff on Saturday at the build-out session.

Cheer Signs and Guidelines

If folks want to make their own signs or effects to add to the cheering of the runners, feel free.  Be as creative as you'd like to be to get the attention of the runners and the judges.  See the guidelines below.

Parking

Parking is on your own, and be mindful of the street closures.  Feel free to print out the Cheer Vehicle to place on your dashboard, but you'll still need to find legal parking, etc.  The Cheer Vehicle placard is just in case the NOPD or Marathon officials prevent you from driving to the location.
