Q: Can you have [my favorite band] play one of your shows?

I always appreciate recommendations, but I don’t actively recruit bands unless I happen to be talking to a musician and mention it to them as potentially of interest. Since I’m not a proper music promoter running a real venue, and can’t really guarantee a particular audience or amount of compensation, I don’t think it’s appropriate to reach out to bands that I don’t have personal connections to.

That being said, if you think that a band would be a good match for my little house concert series, by all means feel free to send them my way. Most of the great acts that have come our way have been through that kind of word of mouth.
