How would you get an autograph in this situation?

    Hey all,

    This is musically-related, but only in that it involves musicians...

    So, I'm a music teacher, and my I've shown some of my students the "Music for Two" DVD with Edgar Meyer and Bela Fleck (sweet video). Well, the students have known for a while that I'm going to see Edgar and Bela this weekend, and they would poop themselves if I were able to get an autograph/pic with these two great musicians. So, how would you suggest I go about doing it? Hang around the performance hall and hope they come out? Try to track them down afterwards? What would you do?
  2. From my experience seeing Fleck shows, he'll come out after the show, and is almost always more than happy to pose for pictures, answer questions, sign autographs, etc. He's a really nice guy!

    I've never seen him play with Edgar.

    1. Move to front stage after the show.
    2. Ask them.
    3. Lord it over your students....

    The good thing for you is that both of these men are extremely affable and down to earth. Just work from there.

    I've seen Bela a couple of times with the Flecktones and I saw Edgar this year with the local symphony orchestra. Brilliant.

    You really have to be a serious jerk not to get an autograph from Bela. Edgar, I don't know, but I imagine he's as cool as Bela is about it.

    One of my friends went to grade school with a woman in
    a well know NY area vocal group. She hadn't seen her in 20
    or so years.

    She got there a little before the concert and dropped a
    letter to the stage manager for her, and got a note back
    during intermission from an usher asking her to hang around
    after the show and she came out. That works too, a
    polite request.
