Bio: Papas provides professional in house production by Soundwave Productions for all the events, eliminating the extra cost for the band. The stage is 26 feet wide, and 10 feet deep, with plenty of space on the dance floor. The sound system is a top quality Yorkville active system with a digital Presonus mixing board, boasting 10k watts, with up to 8 separate aux mixes. But don’t take my word for it, stop in and hear it for yourself… The bands get paid from the door – every penny is yours. Now, I know what you’re thinking…. but wait. We let the bands set their own cover charge to whatever they feel will bring in the most people and be the most beneficial for the band. $5, $7, even a $10 cover adds up quick at 100 or 150 or more people. The club capacity is just over 300, and we’ve successfully had 284 for a show. And remember – no production costs. What would you normally pay for production? $300? $500 or more? We also do weekly advertising on the Bob and Brian morning show. You’ve probably heard some of the spots. They reach the most listeners out of every other morning show, thus giving us the most value for our advertising dollar and helping the bands expand their name recognition. So even before you unload that first piece of gear, with production and advertising costs, Papas already has close to $1000 invested in your performance, because helping the bands be successful helps the club be successful. We have a total of three separate bars to take care of people and have great bartenders and waitresses. We also take a keen interest in helping coordinate group parties and birthdays for band events. If someone in your fan base is having a birthday around the day of your show, have them contact us, and let us put together a party package for them! (This also increases your attendance) We are committed to working as hard as the band to be Milwaukee’s premier live music venue.
