Want to play live music at The Hall? There's a few details you should know:
- We have partnered with BMI for music licensing. They're great to work with and you should consider signing up with them. If you want to play here you will need to limit your play list to original music or any of the 14 million songs they have licensed. Shouldn't be too hard, that's one out of every two songs on the planet. For a complete list visit www.bmi.com.
- We use a professional booking agent for all perfomances at The Hall. Contact Josh Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in playing here.
- The acoustics can be a little tough in here with all the brick, glass and concrete. Vocals and acoustic bands sound pretty good here. Full bands are a little too much for the space.
