you can book a show here from anywhere these days; reverbnation, facebook, here at the website, in an e-mail and myspace! – we want to make it as easy as possible.
If you want to get on a show, look at the REVERBNATION CALENDAR and find a few dates or slots that could work for you. If there’s 4 acts already on the bill, move on. Look for TBA (“to be announced”) slots. If there’s less than 4 acts but no TBA, it means supporting acts are being added by one of the bands that are already booked. Contact them if you want to try to get on that day’s bill.
For open dates, you can bring a supporting act or 2 w/you if you like.
Just let me know when you contact us.
Be patient and DO NOT TRY TO BOOK YOURSELF ONTO THE REVERBNATION CALENDAR – We’ll make something happen real soon.
Sets are 39 minutes long or less. If you’re THAT good, the throngs of your faithful will hoot and holler and I will cheerfully relent and allow an encore.
Starting time is approximately 9pm for the first act unless arrangements were made for an 8:00pm booking. The performers who play at that hour will know who they are.
btw/ we encourage residencies – contact us if you have an idea for one
HONOR YOUR COMMITMENTS;
Bands are responsible to contact us if there’s a problem with your booking ASAP.
If you’re booking a “show”, you’re responsible to give us a lineup at least three weeks in advance of date.
If you don’t, we start booking your “show” slots, ending with your own slot the week of the show, meaning you don’t get on stage for that date and possibly your friends as well.
Some people have abused our easy-booking policy and we found it necessary to institute these procedures.
we have rent to pay.
Bands who don’t show up needn’t bother contacting us ever again. There’s no excuse for bad manners.
BACKLINE INFO!!! we have a PA system, three or 4 mics and stands, 2 bass amps (ampeg and peavy), four guitar amps (fender and peavy), one drumkit (yamaha), near complete – bring your hardware, cymbals and snare – please respect our equipment.
