Please include all of the following information in order to be considered for a show:
  • A brief description of your band

  • A list of the area venues you have played and area bands you have played with.
  • What date(s) you are available to play.

Local Bands - if you've never played at PJ's Lager House before, you will likely be asked to play a weeknight or free show first. This will allow us to get a feel for your sound and your draw. If you draw well and are not too difficult to get along with, in all likelihood you will be asked back.

Touring Bands - Touring bands are welcome at the Lager House and we will do our very best to accommodate you. Of course, it is easier to get a show if you partner with a local band that draws well and complements your sound.

Any band - local or touring - that is booked at the Lager House should not have another show booked in the immediate area one week before, or after, their scheduled performance. Exceptions can be made at the venue's discretion.

Payment - Booker will arrange all payments. -generally 90% of door to bands and %10 to booker. The band/performer who booked the show will handle distribution of funds from the show.

If you have sent an e-mail to our booking address and have not received a reply within one week's time, feel free to send a follow-up e-mail.

After you are booked

Promotions - Promotion of your show can only add to your draw - which makes us want to book you again and again. Even if you have played Lager House before, you are still responsible for promoting your show.

As soon as you are booked, please send a short description of your band and photo to, with the date you are performing in the subject heading.

Send us POSTERS! - We love em. Paper posters should be dropped off / mailed to arrive at the bar NO LATER than TWO WEEKS before the scheduled performance.

Jpegs of your posters need to arrive via e-mail NO LATER than TWO WEEKS before the scheduled performance for our website and social media sites. Send jpegs to:

Update your websites - Band websites and social media calendars need to be updated with details of your performance upon confirmation.
