EXTENDED ABSTRACT - Live musical performances permeate and give meaning to our existence, in some cases allowing us to transcend the stresses and sameness of our lives. The paucity of extant research looms large when compared with the vast number of local bands, gospel choirs, even highly paid professional performers who perform around the country in corporate and non-profit fund-raisers, clubs and restaurants, and concert halls. Moreover, understanding the relationship between music and consumptive motives surrounding achievement of transcendent experience is in its infancy. This paper seeks to redress this deficiency by introducing the concept of hyper-involvement and testing linkages between this construct and other evaluations of live musical performances.
