NEW POLICY - WE ONLY PAY A PERCENTAGE OF BAR SALES
NO Guarantees, Sorry, were are a small community bar, with no cover charge. We pay over $60k a year to musicians out of bar profits. We could have a cover charge but we don't. We do put out concert calendar posters and flyers around town as well as use social media. But please feel free to market the show since your pay is affected.
* PERCENTAGE does not apply on 1st Friday of the month or
when ever we say, but you know when you book. Those times you would get a guarantee.
* Bands must sign for the
money and you may be W9'd
* Touring acts check to see
if you can get on a show even if you see it booked on our
calendar (see homepage), we may be able to add you to the
* We usually have a bar employee who does sound. Sometimes artists may setup up their
own sound. Usually only vocals run through the PA.
* Bands can load in
and setup anytime from 4:30 PM to no later than 9:30PM. This is for the opening band, other bands may load in on demand.
* Music starts closer
to 10 pm or between 9 pm-10 pm. Your choice of how long your set is,
usually from 30 min up to 3 hours. Try not to play more than
45-50 minutes without a break. The longer you play the longer we pay.
* Please don't take breaks longer than 15 min between sets.
* Bands and promoters
can request earlier sets or special events sets that last
all day with lots of bands.
* Bands are provided
drink tickets or a discount at the bar.
* If you want to bring
on multiple acts that's fine but we cannot guarantee an increase
in pay. And you need to confirm them so we market the show properly. These terms also apply to promoters, and DJs.
* Lead artist may be responsible to pay other bands if they bring them. For example if there are 4 bands 1 band might get the cash and disperse to the other bands.
* Bands added to the show
at the last minute may not increase your pay time. For example
if you have a 1 hour set, and add 2 bands at the last minute,
you may still get paid for that hour only.
* Bands with members under 21 are permitted
if a parent of each underage member is in attendance. No underage
audience members may attend.
NO EXCEPTIONS MADE. This is Arizona law.
Some Bands that have played at The Lost Leaf
We book 80% local bands but sometime it is
easier for new local bands to try and get on an existing show
of a band you know to get your foot in the door.
We are sorry that
we cannot respond to all attempts to book Music or Art at
our venue due to our limited resources and high requests.
Thank you and we love you !
