ARE YOU A MUSICIAN OR A BAND THAT IS INTERESTED IN PERFORMING AT MY PUBLIC TAPROOM?
A fan of a music as varied and unususal as the ciders I make, I enjoy having diverse live music at my Taproom from hip hop to bluegrass. My Taproom has 45 seats, and ample standing room for an additional 55 music fans. I prefer acoustic sets with minimal equipment needs, but can offer use of my 8-channel mixing board, 1000 watt amplifier and two big speakers (no monitors). I do not have a sound tech on staff.
I am currently soliciting acts for Tuesday and Wednesday nights starting in September 2017. There are two slots available each evening: 7:30-8:30 and 8:30-9:30 (the Taproom opens at 4 and closes at 10 those nights, so second set must be wrapped up at 9:30). Some nights one musician/group will play both sets, other times there will be two groups in one evening, in which case the first set will be from 7:00-8:00.
WHATS IN IT FOR YOU?
I NEVER charge a cover for weeknight shows, but I am pleased to support your talents with cider on the house for the evening of your set(s), and a minimum $50 stipend per set (or 10% of the bar sales during that hour, whichever is larger — bring your friends!) that you can take in cash or double that if you would prefer Taproom credit (good for to-go bottles, branded merchandise, draft during future visits for you or friends, or growler fills).
I will promote on social media and ask that you do the same. I take promotion very seriously.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to with your band’s name, style of music, desired number of sets, links to where I can hear your music online, and date(s) you are available. Feel free to swing by the Taproom, check out the space (a bartender would be happy to point out our venue and details) and tell us about the music you want to share.
