A little more about how we do things here – THE FINE PRINT
We do our set times a little differently here. Bands can load in anytime after 6:00 pm; line checks only. Because we provide a full back line, breakdown and setup are minimal. The first band plays the entire hour, 7-8pm. Breakdown and setup comes out of the beginning of the 8-9:30 slot, then the second band plays right up to 9:30. Same thing for the 9:30-11 slot; the third band will set up after the second finishes breaking down at 9:30, and will play until 11:00 pm.
You do not need to bring anything other than the instruments you will be playing – we have a full p.a. system, mics, cables, amps, and a drum kit (drummers may swap out snare, cymbals, throne, and kick pedal only – we will not strike the drum kit for your performance). We do not pay performers, but provide a sound engineer for your show and artists are free to solicit donations and sell merchandise (tip bucket, provided). We recommend having a friend carry the tip bucket around the room once during your performance and also bringing attention to it occasionally between songs, it will make a significant difference. Band Members will receive 50% off their bar tab, but this discount does not include significant others, roadies, or guest artists sitting in on a few numbers. Although the bar is open, all ages are welcome to attend the performances. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns regarding our policies, we will do our best to make you sound great! The most successful performers at Luthier’s Co-Op do their own promotion, create online events, put up flyers, and invite their friends.
