303 E Main St, Ashland, OR, US
Bio: Our place is a contemporary version of a speakeasy but with really great food! Musicians are performing in a very intimate space. Patrons are seated at tables, banquettes, sofas, and lounge chairs…very plush. We have a full dinner service up till 8:30 or 9:00 and a late night menu. People come for the music, atmosphere, cocktails, and the food. We want you to know about this so you can understand how the audience will receive you. This is not a huge dance hall. What we want most is to create a space that supports the artist in presenting their work to the public. We cannot directly pay for musical talent. Here is what we can do. We will feed the band, give you each band member drink from the bar, max $20 per person, and post a cover for your music. The whole cover will go to you. Typically, bands can pull covers from $3-$5 per person in Ashland. Most bands will pull in between $100- $180 for a weekend evening plus tips and merchandise sales. We prefer to have you provide a door person. The staff can help, but they are also responsible for seating guests, taking orders, occasionally clearing tables and trouble shooting the floor. To be sure you get your cover an additional person is helpful. If needed, we have contract staff available for hire to sit the door. Please let us know what you prefer. In addition, we will provide promotional help. We list you on our website, newsletter, facebook, local online calendars and publications. We can also get you in touch with some local media to promote the show. We do develop a standard “Tease” flyer for each performance and post it in our window and a couple of key places around town. If you have a poster/flyer that you prefer, just let me know and we will use your artwork. We typically schedule music to start at 9:00 on weekends and 8:30 on weekdays. We would love to have you play two sets or approximately 2 ½ hours. These times can fluctuate in the winter season.
