Get Your Band Booked: To book a show, contact us at woodruffsbooking@gmail.com. Please supply us with the following information when making your booking inquiry:

1. Your Band Name
2. Your Contact Information (Both Email & Phone)
3. Links To Stream Your Music (e.g. Bandcamp, Soundcloud etc...) DO NOT ATTACH MP3s TO YOUR EMAIL
4. Links To Find Your Band Online (e.g. Your Website, Facebook, Twitter, iTunes etc...)
5. Any input lists, or stage plots if you've got 'em.

NOTE: We get tons of booking requests every week. Please allow up to one week response time before following up. Also, know we typically book two to three months in advance, so please don't write us today expecting to set up a show two weeks from now.

Once You've Been Booked: Unless given prior approval and details have been cleared otherwise, know this:

1. Set times & set orders are set in stone. If you absolutely need either changed, it cannot happen on Day of Show, and must be cleared with our booker in advance (preferably 1 week).

2. You cannot add another band to the bill at the last second. Set times have been negotiated in advance, and the sudden addition of an act to the bill can anger other artists on the bill, can effect the booking schedule for the venue, and throws off the planning that has been done to set up the entire evening.

3. Woodruff's shall provide a door person to collect money at the door, and you have the right to inquire about the door count. We don't take a cut of your merch, though that also means we do not have staff to sell/watch your merch for you.

4. You agree that any minors in the band shall be immediately ejected from Woodruff's if caught drinking, irrespective of when you play or are supposed to play.

5. You agree not to perform any ticketed shows in normal venues (not including house shows, benefits, showcases, free shows) for a period of one week in advance of and one week following the week your show is to occur within a 15 mile radius of Woodruff's.

Engineer: House Engineer provided unless otherwise notified far in advance. On the day of the show, please listen to our Engineer's suggestions and tips, as you'll have a better sounding show for it, he's a professional and has been doing this for years.

NOTE: If we ask you to turn down the stage volume (there are noise limits we have to pay attention to) repeatedly and you do not comply, we reserve the right to end your set early by powering down the PA.

The PA more than fills the room, so your amps and drums don't need to do all the work themselves. When your stage volume overpowers that of the PA, it is the sound of your show that suffers, as your fans will not be able to hear your music accurately. This is not the PA's fault, but your own.
