  • Booking Intervals

    October 27th, 2015
    contra, music  [html]
    Yesterday I wasn't sure what to do with all my stats about who played what weekends when over the last few years, but here's a question we can answer now: how long do weekends wait before bringing someone back? I looked through all the repeat bookings [1] and counted how many years there were in between. So, two psuedo histograms, one for bands and one for callers:

    Bands
    0
    1  I
    2  IIII
    3  III
    4  III
    5  III
    6  II
    7  I
    8  I
    9  III
    10 II
    11
    12
    13
    14
    15 I
    16
    17
    18 I
    
    Callers
    0  IIIIIIII
    1  IIIIIIIIII
    2  IIIIIIIIII
    3  IIIII
    4  IIIII
    5  IIIIII
    6  IIII
    7  III
    8  III
    9  I
    10
    11
    12
    13 II
    14 I
    15
    16
    17
    18
    19
    20
    21
    22 I
    

    Apparently caller and band re-booking are really different! Callers are much more likely to be asked back, and much much more likely to be asked back for the following year.


    [1] I didn't include the Oberlin student band bookings because those seemed like a different sort of phenomenon.
