  • no use of curse words
  • no political slogans or speech
  • conservative clothing
  • please stick to your time slot (no encores)
Can I sell merchandise?
Because we are raising funds for victims of sex-trafficking with Wellspring Living, we are not allowing entertainers to sell merchandise at this time.

However, you can promote your website and social media in your performance.

We do not have a standard receipt for performers.

However, if you are signed with BMI or ASCAP, you can document your musical performance for royalties.

  • electric points for powered instruments
  • PA system provided and engineered
  • mentions on social media for your performance
  • seated area for audience provided
