BOOKING

COMMON QUESTIONS ANSWERED

BOOKING:
Check the booking calendar below for availability before requesting a performance date. We are now booking Fridays and Saturdays from October 2017 and beyond. Make sure to study the booking requirements below as well. Generally speaking, we are not booking concert performances for days other than Friday and Saturday evenings. Contact Jamey at jamey@jameyshouseofmusic.com. Please do not call for bookings.

We get many requests from agencies and independent touring groups that have no local fan base or name recognition and are unable to draw a reasonable audience, therefore we only book groups that can guarantee a minimum draw. We look for openers to guarantee a 10 seat draw, co-bills to draw 20 each, headliners 30 seats, and solo acts to draw 40 minimum. If fewer than 10 tickets have been sold two days before the date of the performance, we reserve the right to cancel the show, and refund advance sales. We do not often have opening acts for logistical reasons. If you are a booking agent, we expect that you will not overexpose your act in this market. For example, we recommend a 2 week/20 mile lockout when routing, unless it is a big name with big draw potential. This is a serious listening room, and we operate on slim margins, so we can not afford an empty room. If you are seeking exposure in a new market, try some of the music bars in the region instead.

If you have booked a show and fail to generate good ticket sales, it is expected that you will honor your committment to perform. Our reputation is on the line as well as yours. Our audiences expect consistency, and we do not like to fill scheduling holes at the last minute. We rarely rebook an act that cancels without good cause. Thank you for your professionalism. We love a full house as much as you do. We do not have a built in audience, so it is important that you or your publicist independently publicize your show to ensure a good turn-out.

Please contact Jamey Reilly by email for booking at jamey@jameyshouseofmusic.com. As you can imagine, we are deluged with requests from around the world. Please be patient when making submissions. We are very selective and take our time when filling dates. We will contact you only if we will offer a date. Once contacted, we need full information on the individual/group appearing, press materials, one poster, and a stage plot. Please submit CD or music URL's (address on home page), EPK , website URL along with local venues played, current regional bookings with pending dates, requested dates and an estimated draw. Again, we will only contact you or your agent if offering a date. We don't need a contract to proceed unless you insist on one. We prefer to proceed on an honor basis, to show the respect and trust that has largely disappeared from the music business.

Our compensation structure is a flat 70% of the gate (and 100% merchandise sales) against a $200 minimum guarantee, whichever is greater. We do not penalize for less than expected draws. Co-bills split the draw. Openers are paid a flat $50 deducted from the draw. Payout is made at the end of the evening by check. Minimum advance ticket prices are $15 and $17 at the door. We will price tickets in coordination with the act. Higher ticket prices are reasonable for national touring name acts, with a $20 to $70 typical price range, and we negotiate terms accordingly.

A maximum of 4 comps are available for headliners and co-bills. The press is always free. Volunteers and interns are always free.

This is an artist friendly room, and we have 100% positive feedback from our performers (and guests). We go out of our way to make your evening a showcase event of the highest caliber. so you can sound your best, have fun and connect intimately with your audience. We re-book groups based on the overall quality of the show, audience response and turnout. We are an ASCAP, SESAC and BMI licensed venue.
