ordinary Venues. Promise you'll know and hear the difference. Silvie's

in order of which was received. Please check the calendar schedule for

WHAT IS YOUR FOLLOWING?

What kind
of numbers can you expect to attract on any given night of the
week?Paying a good show isn't as simple as showing up and plugging in.
We ask that ALL bands promote their shows as best as possible; after
all its you on stage. Often times bands mistakenly assume their friends
know about their shows; Please let them know don't assume anything. Tel
everyone you know to come see you play, including family, friends,
Co-workers, etc. You'll be glad you did. Playing an empty room isn't
fun for any band regardles. One more great way that can help; Perhaps
you can garner some media coverage if you send in a CD, press
releases,etc. If you need help, let us know we can send you our local
media outlets.

WHAT THE BAND SHOULD GET?

Aside from the
musicians, the next most important person of the night is the
sound tech. The only fee taken off of the door tally is to pay the
sound tech and the rest goes to the band. We are more than fair to our
bands, we do keep very close track of tally for each band and make sure
you earn well based on your share at the end of the night and get paid
for the number of fans that come to see you. 

DRINKS FOR BAND:

Until
further notice, there will be a set number of drink tickets issued
and/or discounts offered to band leader to distribute as they wish (ask
or Silvie for details). And yes we have, great drink specials for your
fans as well.

LOAD IN TIME:

( Full out: 8:00p ) ( Acoustic: 7:30p )  ( Sunday Show 7:15p )

DOORMAN:

Unless you make special arrangements with us prior to your show, liability issues demand that we use our own doorman / security.

SOUND, SOUND TECH:

You
are about to play great sounding room and as always our N-1 priority is
the sound. We are very proud to say that Silvie's has Pro Sound
equipment and very professional and easy to work with Sound-Tech that

pleasant experience on our stage and a great show to boot.
