Playing just outside of NYC

I'm excited to announce that we'll be playing a "small, intimate" venue in Jersey just outside of NYC on August 19th. We were contacted by Red Door Concerts.

I'm excited about it, here are some of the details.

I'm pretty active in trying to locate reasonably local artists to book. We get offered acts that are not local all the time, but the expense of getting to a venue(air fare ect) makes it absolutely necessary that any body from out of driving distance have other things booked in order to make it worth their while

I have been centering on networks of myspace - looking for acts that have promise, individuals or band that are within driving distance. We also want to find acts with whom we might have an ongoing relationship and give them an opportunity to return (hopefully helping them in a very concentrated population - 15 minutes from NYC)

We have a long term commitment to building a venue that has enough name recognition that people will trust us enough to come out and hear artists that they may not have heard of.

We are in the 8 month of our first year of booking. (Actually we used to do it on a smaller scale in a series of house concerts - Bill Mallonee, Pierce Pettis, Jan Krist, Miranda Stone, Sufjan Stevens, Brindley Brothers Band, and many others) Now we are in a bigger venue and working to expand and develop this venue.

The shows are the third saturday of every month. We have had a pretty sucessful year so far. Most of the shows have been near sell-outs.

I heard your music and thought this might be a good venue for you guys.

(Poncho you can come see us now -- bring all your friends).

He also liked Darby Di Natale, saying she was wonderful and a perfect fit for the venue, so she will be opening for us.
