Thank you for your interest in partnering with us as an independent artist. We strive to provide our guests with the very best live entertainment in the area. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself and your bandmates with our guidelines. We tried to cover all the bases, but if you have any additional questions, please feel free to jot them down in the form below, and we will get back to you with answers!


River Run Weekend Entertainment FAQ:


What are the start/end times? 

Each act should be sound checked and ready to start before the start of their fist set. Bands/Artists should have enough material for a 3 hour show.

How many sets/breaks?

2 fifteen minute breaks in between 50 minute sets are the standard. Background music should be played through your PA system during break time that is at least -15 dB lower than band standard volume.

Where do we load in/load out?

Due to fire regulations, No curb parking is permitted. Load-in/load-out parking is located at the circle by the driving range, but vehicle must be moved and parked before set up begins.

What’s the smoking policy?

All vendors must adhere to the same smoking policy that the restaurant staff follows. This includes no smoking within 50 feet of the main entrance to the building. Non-smoking patrons shouldn’t have to walk through a barrier of smoke collecting by the front door to get in the restaurant.

What should we wear?

All vendors should be a good visual representation of the venue that they are representing. Casual is cool, but be mindful of any messages on t-shirts that may not display the family atmosphere that we are striving to maintain.

How loud can we play?

While we realize that many acts are using backing tracks, this is a small venue that relies on good conversations and interactions between guests as waitstaff.  We don’t want our guests having to yell over the band to get their order in, or to ask the other members in their party what looks good on the menu. If it’s too loud, no matter how talented the band is, they tend to become more of a distraction instead of a draw. Our maximum volume cap must be kept below 90 dB at all times.

What should we play? 

That’s a question that is always changing. A good mix of  Country, Classic Rock, Folk, Pop, and anything else that sounds good to the crowd. Studies show that guests tend to come back to a location more often when the live music is uptempo and happy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t throw in some ballads that everyone will know and love!

Do we get to eat and drink?

Great question. Yes!! We offer a food/beverage allowance for each member of your group. A server will be happy to take your order, and put it against your account for the evening.

How do we get paid?

We pay by check. Depending on the frequency that you will be playing with us, we have a few different options. Any vendor that is paid more than $600 in a calendar year is subject to a 1099K form as per tax guidelines. Vendors must keep that info on file with us.
