Booking Policy

The Pour House Music Hall presents the best local, regional and nationally touring artists seven nights a week. The professional presentation of your music and engagement of your fans is our top priority. If you are interested in playing at The Pour House Music Hall, please read below.

1) Have you ever played Raleigh before?

The Pour House Music Hall is a smaller more intimate live music venue. It is not, however, a small enough venue to break bands into the Raleigh scene. We are ultimately looking for bands with marquee value in the area to help us fill the venue.  If you’ve played in Raleigh or in the area, please include the date, venue, how many paid and the ticket price.

2) Where can we listen to your music?

Send us links to your best websites where we can listen to your music (Reverb Nation, Sound Cloud, Youtube etc)

3) Can you provide us with posters and promo for a show once we confirm a date?

We do a ton of promo on our end but it takes a team effort in order for a show to be a HUGE success.  If we get left holding all the responsibility for promo, then chances are pretty good the show will not be as successful.  If you plan on just booking a show and then just showing up to play ~ please stop reading now and delete this website from your browser!

What to do now…

There is a good chance that we’ll respond to your email within a few hours, but definitely within 24 hours.
