1.) Arrival by the Performer:

  • Entry into the venue should be through an entrance that is not used by members of the public. Parking should be reserved as close to that entrance as possible.

  • Extra time for set up, any wiping down should be built into the preshow setup.

2.) Prior to, and during the Performance:

  • Introductions, any announcements by the venue should be on a mic and a stand that is the property of the venue.

  • No member of the audience or the venue shall approach the stage without permission either before, during, or after the performance without the permission of the performer.

  • (Up to individual performer) CD’s or other Merch shall be sold online only.

  • Takedown of the sound equipment shall be accomplished only by the Performer or assigns.

  • Payment unless already provided on arrival, shall be in an envelope, and given to the performer by a person wearing a mask.
