Shows at the Driskill
Bar are expected to start on time. Load in
at least 30 minutes before scheduled show time through the 7th Street entrance
to the Driskill Bar (between Congress and Brazos). Discounted valet parking at the main hotel entrance on Brazos
is available (have valet ticket stamped at bar).
The Driskill Bar
furnishes a PA system (Yamaha mixer, Crown amp, EV speakers, but no monitors).
Performers must provide mics, stands, and cables in addition to any
guitar/bass amps (direct guitar plug-in to the mixer is fine, too) and manage
sound. Also, the on-stage Baldwin
concert grand piano is available for use. Please moderate the use of
drums. Keep the volume reasonable for
the size of the crowd: too little is better than too much.
Please dress accordingly
for an upscale venue: no t-shirts or ripped jeans.
No videotaping of a
performance is allowed without the hotel’s express permission.
Performers will be asked
to fill out a W-9 tax form when first playing the Driskill Bar and normally a check
will be mailed within a week of the performance date. Sets are usually
two hours long with a 15 minute break in the middle (unless otherwise
noted). A tip jar is provided, but no signs asking for tips or passing
the tip jar are allowed. CDs and band merchandise may be sold.
If you have any problems
in fulfilling your obligation to perform, please contact Rod Crawford as soon
as possible at 512-415-0280 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not call the hotel or schedule someone
else in your place without approval.
