We're Booking Bands

We have a monthly residency beginning Saturday, September 14. The residency is at Thunder Road in Somerville, MA and the format of the evening is five sets of about 30 minutes each, alternating burlesque with band (burlesque/band/burlesque/band/burlesque).  We're looking for bands that fit with our retro/vintage aesthetic – Blues, Jazz Manouche, Roots, R&B, Soul, Cabaret, Americana, Swing, Big Band, Surf, Doo Wop, Rockabilly, etc.  If you play something else, we're happy to take a listen too.

Some stuff to be aware of:

  • The stage at Thunder Road isn't huge and we need to dance on it when you're not playing.  You don't take everything down after your sets, but you do need to be able to minimize the amount of space you take up when you're not playing.
  • The band plays two sets of no more than 30-minutes each including set-up and strike. 
  • You get paid
  • Load-in is at 6pm.  Doors at 8pm, show at 8:30pm (which means your sets are around 9:15pm and 10pm)
  • The residency is the second Saturday of every month (Sept 14, October 12, November 9, December 14)
  • Each band will only be booked for one of those dates (so we'll have four different bands)

Fill out the form to be considered.  Thanks so much for wanting to play with us!
