BOOKING INFORMATION

SEATING CAPACITY: 80 / MAX PREMISES CAPACITY: 99

TICKETS All tickets are sold through Alvas LLC, which accepts credit cards only.

PAYMENT $200 to Alvas for In-Store and Alvas Showroom/Sunday bookings $300 to Alvas for Showroom/Saturday bookings.

These minimums are taken from the ticket sales. In the event that you do not have enough ticket sales to cover the minimum, you may be asked to pay the difference. Once the minimum has been reached, 90% of the difference goes to the Artist and 10% goes to Alvas LLC.

For example:

$1,000 - Ticket Sales $  -200 - House Minimum/Sunday show _____ $  800 - Ticket Sales after Minimum

The Artist gets 90% of $800 = $720

Alvas LLC gets 10% of $800 = $80 + $200 = $280

If you decide to use the projector, have the piano tuned, video your performance, use Alvas Music Store’s backline, etc. there will be additional charges. You may be required to pay these prior to the show.

Unless someone is available to sign your check at your performance, any monies owed to the performer will be mailed via check to the name and address on your W-9 on the Wednesday following your show.
