Downstairs Stage

The main stage downstairs can fit 50 people in the prime viewing area plus another 30 in the hallway and patio. This room is ideal for acoustic, folk, indie, jazz acts, or even stand-up comedy.

Payment is a minimum of $80 for a 2.5-hour performance. Performers will get at least 1 drink on the rider. The venue will award bonuses for exceeding food and drink sales targets which can potentially double the pay rate.

Upstairs Stage

The band room upstairs is suitable for all heavy-hitting bands. Whether it be psych, punk, funk, or rock and roll, the fun happens up here! Venue hire is free. For a $50 payment, they will provide sound engineer, a pizza for all to share and a drink for each band member.

The Note Network will ticket your event for as low as 5% of sales. A door person can be provided to take tickets and sell band merch for an additional 10%. Fees are calculated after the $50 is paid.

Typically there are 2 bands each playing 45-minute sets at 8pm and 9pm. Capacity allows for 30 punters. More people may fit depending on the number of band members in the room. For a sold-out show with tickets at $12.00, each band should expect to make $130.
