    ABOUT

    BOOKING REQUESTS:

    This information may help you for other venues as well.   We do not recommend using any Booking submission websites such as Reverbnation or Sonicbids as their systems are too slow and complicated to work with for most venues and agents.

     

     Here’s how to send in a booking request:

    A simple polite email (a little clever humor doesn’t hurt):

     

    Sample Subject Line:  “BOOKING: Band Name – Date(s)”

    and be sure to include the following in your email:

    1. DATES that would make sense for your tour or local performance (of course spacing out at least a month if local)
    2. SHOW HISTORY & DRAW in Seattle including specifics about past 2-3 venues with # of tickets sold at what ticket price. Please don’t exaggerate or use vague non specific terms here.
    3. LINEUP IDEAS with bands you know (who have draw) who could share a concert with you
    4. MUSIC – Bandcamp link (or similar), one music file attachment is ok if needed (10mb or less)
    5. VIDEOS – top 2 that really represent your style of performance and best songs. Professional audio is important so don’t just pick some random live show and post it. We prefer 1 live show video and 1 music video in HD with good audio.
    6. ONLINE REACH – Facebook page (with # of Likes) / Twitter link (with # of Followers), Klout score, Youtube, etc.
    7. WEBSITE if you have one – make sure your site has full music preview, shows listing, and press quotes available. We also recommend an easy way for fans to see videos, hear music  (full songs), connect with your FB page, see your tour dates, etc.

     

    Got that all ready?

    Email us right here: booking(at)fremontabbey.org

     

    Changing that to normal email format of course (to cut back on spam).  And remember, while we’d love to reply to everyone we usually don’t have time. But we do try to listen to all submissions. Feel free to followup by replying to the same email once after a week or two.   Thanks!

     

    *Note: If you'd like to setup your own show here in more of a rental style that may be possible. We recommend considering Tuesday or Thursday nights for smaller shows, Fridays for big shows depending on your budget. See our Rentals page for more on that. 
    **The Round is a different style event, so please make sure you're familiar with the collaborative concept before requesting to play (ie. attending a show if possible).  Also note that we generally book out a few months and curate a group of artists who will fit together onstage so it's fairly rare that we can book someone from an email request.
