Why Sponsor Midwest Gypsy Swing Fest?

Midwest Gypsy Swing Festival is the brainchild of Sims and Maggie Delaney-Potthoff, the founders of Harmonious Wail- Madison, Wisconsin’s award winning acoustic Americana- avored Gypsy Jazz trio. For 24 years The Wail was has performed at festivals worldwide. As a result Harmonious Wail has created a unique Euro-style festival of it’s own right here in the Midwest, bringing world class virtuosos to the Midwest Gypsy Swing Festival’s twice yearly performances.

Your support not only gets you front row seats at the shows, but you become a strategic partner in our growing festival, and you give life to true, heartfelt, high-integrity music.

Sponsor recognition creates an intimate association with the festival’s year-round promotional efforts, each of which has more than doubled in dedicated followers over the past year. You, your business and/or your cause will be promoted via professional graphic and electronic imagery in the following recognition elements:

  • Midwest Gypsy Swing Fest website
  • Logo display with links & promotion in news updates
  • MGSF newsletter “Sponsor Spotlights” (3500 names)
  • MGSF + HW Facebook posts
  • Twitter and Instagram feeds

The Henry Mac Fund

In March 2015 Maggie and Sims’ son, Henry, passed and in his name the Henry Mac Fund was started with the sole purpose of bringing support to budding young artists. Henry was a truly gifted musician who toured and recorded with Harmonious Wail and other bands from Oregon to the Netherlands to New Orleans.

Midwest Gypsy Swing Fest contributes to the Henry Mac Fund. In coordination with the MAMAs (www.the- mamas.org) the Henry Mac Fund donated $500 to Madison Music Makers (www.madisonmusicmakers. org) in June of 2016.

In addition to supporting the Henry Mac Fund, MGSF also supports The Conzemius Scholarship Fund. Over the past 12 years, the Conzemius Scholarship Fund, working with the Verona Area High School, has paid for dozens of underprivileged kids to receive a higher education, most being the rst in their families to attend college.

Your support and sponsorship of the Midwest Gypsy Swing Fest will directly bene t the Henry Mac Fund’s ability to keep paying it forward by supporting the arts and education.

Thank you for your consideration. See you at the Fest!!
