Merchandise- Bands benefit from 100% of all sales of their own merchandise @ Rodeo. No we don't want a cut of that thanks.

Repeat Bookings- It is generally pretty clear what works, so here are the things to avoid if you wish to return. Drawing very little.. (inadequate promotion) Being rude to our staff... Clearing the room (note: loud amps do not work well @ Rodeo Bar). We trust you to do the right thing Cancellations: Emergency cancellations (day of show or day before, etc.): call the club (212 683 6500) and ask to speak to a manager.

DO NOT JUST SEND AN EMAIL- Get a hold of a manager at Rodeo!

SUNDAY, MONDAY, TUESDAY SETS 9PM TO 12:00AM LOAD IN BEFORE 8PM Sunday is traditionally a hip night at the Rodeo Bar. Monday and Tuesdays are great nights to be all about the music. (without the extra loud drunken walk ins we can get on the weekends).

WEDNESDAY LOAD IN BEFORE 7:30PM SETS 9PM TO 12AM Please start on time, it can be helpful to have your first set longer to keep folks from going home early. THURSDAY LOAD IN BEFORE 8:30PM SETS 9:30PM TO 12:30AM Thursdays are rowdy nights @ Rodeo. We like to keep it lively, so have fun with it. FRIDAYS & SATURDAYS LOAD IN BEFORE 9PM SETS 10:45PM TO 1:45AM

Happy hour folks stay late so, start on time and help keep 'em at your show.

Thank you for doing what you do...

Sincerely, The Staff of The Rodeo Bar
