Note: When your IBB purchase shows as "Shipped" this means only that your order has been received and processed, there are no physical tickets issued. Please print and show your proof of purchase at the door in order to quickly receive your wristband or hand stamp.
Cash Only at the door. I'm on site by Aug 11 if you want to purchase any remaining VIP's. The Hyatt does NOT have tickets
Provide proof of SPAH membership when purchasing, or buy at the reasonable General Public rate. Some members wait for the convention to renew membership, I don't want those loyal folks to miss out on the VIP/Reserved seats. Just reach out when buying and explain, I'll recognize the majority of SPAH members who have previously attended and will allow those discounts.
Sincerely hope you've enjoyed my 7 year effort to keep this great event alive and fresh. Truth told, the IBB consumes hundreds of hours of my time, plus significant travel and other expenses, a labor of love that always leaves my pockets somewhat lighter. Tips/contributions below are appreciated, please contact me if you are interested in becoming a sponsor or patron.
Click below on any of the six ticket types and/or the Tip Jar to see the full description. SPAH members scroll further down to see your discount. Apologies for the necessity of a processing fee, it covers only part of the expense of doing the ticketing in-house, it's less than if I turned it over to Ticketmaster.
Warning: This is "adult night" in regard to the SPAH convention, irreverent lyrics and general merrymaking may be encountered. Chaperones/parental discretion is recommended.
My Four Rule Disclaimer:
1. All ticket sales are final. Extreme circumstances will be considered... late flights, changed plans etc do not qualify for refunds.
2. Lineup and performance order are subject to change at any time. The named artists have confirmed, but with so many coming from so far there can be unforeseen issues. The ticket you purchase is for the IBB itself, due to the above mentioned conditions we can not guarantee that any particular artist will be present. But, always a dozen+ world class players in the house who can step in, the talent that comes to SPAH and the IBB every year is incredibly deep!
3. Do not bring music gear to this event. But... it is SPAH week after all, harmonica cases ok for those with a reasonable expectation of being called to the stage during one of the Showcases or the Grand Finale. Larger items such as amplifiers or guitars will not be allowed through the door.
And... #4. Have a ball, but keep it in your pocket! Gussing is not permitted!
"Gussing" is an inside term for playing a harmonica out in the audience, sometimes beginners get the urge to play along. This practice is a general annoyance to others, and is considered to be disrespectful to the artists. (would you play a guitar in the crowd during a Buddy Guy performance?) Extreme cases subject to ejection.

VIP Seating - SPAH Member
