Promoter/Band Booking:

Our policy for promoters is a $750 rental fee for all 21+ shows Sun-Thursdays and $1000 on Friday/Saturdays to cover staffing and production. The rental is $1000 for all 18+/all ages shows with a 50%, non refundable deposit due upfront. We have a 10pm curfew for All Ages/18+ events on Fridays and Saturdays. If you have confirmed a show and have not submitted your deposit within forty five days of the event or within 7 days of confirmation, the date may be subject to change. Curfew for all under 21 shows is midnight per our dance permit regulations. We are also required to charge an additional $5 to each minor upon entry for a refillable soda cup per ABC requirements. The remainder of the rental fee is due before doors open for the evening. If you cancel within 4 weeks of your event, rental is still due in full. Curfew for 18+/all ages shows is midnight. All online ticket sales are run exclusively through our website.
