The overall theme of Sheltered
Reality is based around the word ‘Success’. There are two types
of success that we focus on: personal success and success in
With personal success, we remind the audience that they
to work hard and try to be the best they can be at anything that
comes their way. However, success in helping others is just as
important! The audience is reminded that we should not keep our
talents and skills to ourselves but that we need to share them,
them, and empower people every day with them. There is no better
feeling than that of helping another person.
Within our focus theme of success,
we can cover numerous other topics such as:
- Drugs & Alcohol Prevention
- Strong Work Ethic
- Character Education
- Personal Self-Confidence
- Living out the Life Dream
To summarize, any positive
you want shared with those in the audience we can fit into our
message and performance. Do not be afraid to contact us and tell

Please keep in mind that in order to book Sheltered Reality to perform for your event, it is best to contact us 4-6 months in advance. If you contact us less than 3 months in advance, then it is highly possible that the date you are wanting to book has already been filled, but please email us to check on your date.
Sheltered Reality performs in numerous venues for a variety of audiences. Listed below are some examples of the types of performances we can share.
We present a brief (15 minute) overview of SR and perform the postlude and/or offertory during the worship service. We ask that a freewill offering be taken during the service as payment for the morning performance and earplugs are always provided for the audiences enjoyment. In order to have time to present our entire message and mission, we would prefer to do a show separate from the worship service, perhaps in the afternoon or evening. A $300.00 fee would apply to the full-length show. Providing a meal for the performers would be appreciated, but is not required. There could be anywhere from 5 to 15 drummers at one of these performances, which would last approximately 90 minutes.
We perform 4 or 5 songs and present a message pertaining to character education during a school assembly that would last approximately one hour. We present a message about success, achievement, citizenship and changing the world. Assembly topics can cover anti-bullying, drug and alcohol prevention, suicide prevention, personal self-confidence, or any major topic your school may focus on (we are open to suggestions)! We include a fun portion at the end of the assembly to remind everyone that doing good can, and should, be fun. Assemblies are applicable for all ages. We have a $325.00 fee per assembly (negotiable if necessary). Sheltered Reality presented 95 assemblies in the 2011-2012 school year alone!
Sheltered Reality is often asked to perform at educational and other professional conferences. The best conference performance is when all conference attendees are gathered together in one setting. This is an effective time and place for our message and music. Many conferences also request that we offer workshops to the attendees and the workshops always receive great reviews. Our presentation can be of any length. Traditionally, conference honorariums have ranged from $350.00 to $1000.00, depending on the budget. For smaller conferences, we are able to negotiate lower fees as well. We also ask to set up a table for donations for CDs and other SR products that conference attendees often want.
Fairs, Festivals, and Parades:
Our summer calendar is always filled with summer performances at town festivals, county fairs, state fairs, and other celebratory events. For our summer events, we can perform anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes for a fee of $350. We bring a lot of energy and fun to every performance, but we still include the message. If you’d like us to be a part of your parade as well, that adds $150 to the fee and we will need you to provide a full-size flatbed trailer and a 3500 watt (minimum) generator.
Other Events: Other events that have proven successful include outside concerts, youth group lock-ins, benefits (i.e. Relay for Life events) and community awareness meetings. However, we can play and bring our message to almost any event, so if you are interested in having us come, do not hesitate to ask! The length of these other performances typically range from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on what the event is. Our fee for these other events varies from $300.00 to $500.00.
