In a desperate effort to reduce our carbon footprint, not to mention the tsunami of paper and plastic which threatens our tiny cluttered earth or office, we have adopted the following guidelines for artists submitting work:
1. Please familiarize yourself with our venue. While we present some 700 events a year in every conceivable genre (and quite a few inconceivable ones), there are some performances that will not match either the physical space or our rather subjective esthetic.
2. There is an Artists Salon from 6-8pm on the first Thursday of every month, which you are welcome, indeed encouraged, to attend. It affords an opportunity to mingle with other artists, toiling in neighboring vineyards, and to introduce yourself to our curators. However, it is not a bazaar for selling yourself or your work.
3. Please follow these guidelines for formal inquiries:
MUSICIANS/CD RELEASE REQUESTS
