Q. Are any of your events "all ages"?
A. No. ALL of our events are 21 and over.

A. No. We DO NOT charge a cover. On a rare occasion we may have an
event or benefit that will have a cover, but it will usually be charged
for the back live-music room only. There's never a cover for the
main bar area.

We also have promoters that book bands on certain nights and we will foward bands to them that we think will fit in with what they do.

All you need to bring is a snare drum, cymbals, bass drum pedal and
your instruments. DRUMMERS DON'T FORGET TO BRING A CLUTCH! Bands are
welcome to bring their own gear; however, because we're not a venue
in the traditional sense, there is limited space for gear. We liken
it to playing a party as opposed to playing a "show". If you
have further questions e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
