How Do I Get Booked At The Club?

See Our Booking policies 

PERFORMANCE FORMAT DURING  CONCERTS

All Concerts begin at 7 PM and and have two sets, with a ten minute intermission in between, to stretch your legs, grab a snack or drink, and also purchase performer items, cd’s, T-shirts, etc.

PERFORMANCE FORMAT During COFFEEHOUSE/OPEN MIC 

This is a great opportunity for local performers to work before a receptive audience.  Try out new material or give us a taste of your music for a possible future booking or just have some fun.  We look forward to seeing you.

Open Mics are held once a month (except December and March) throughout the South Shore Folk Music Club at First Parish Duxbury season.  We have one “All Night Open Mic” in February.  Performers of all genres are welcome – poets, musicians, writers, comedians, etc. – if you want an audience, it’s yours.

Signing up:  On coffeehouse/open mic nights, sign ups begin when the doors open at 6:30 PM.  There are no early sign-ups and you must sign up in person on a first come, first served basis.

Format:  On coffeehouse nights, we book two paid sets – an opener starts the show at 7 PM and a featured act closes out the night.  The Open Mic takes place in between, before the break and after the break.  Open mic performers are each allotted up to an 8-minute set – ( a two (2) song maximum).   Time limits must be strictly adhered to in order to give as many participants as possible a chance to perform.

Sound:  We have a great sound crew who will help you hook up and set up.  If you have any special or unusual needs, talk to them (Keith, Glenn, Bill, Mark and Frank) before the show to find out what’s available.
