1. HOW DO I BOOK A SHOW AT THE MUSE?
If you are sending a booking request (original music) please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Dates & Times requested
Recent hard-ticketed headline shows (& tickets sold)
Show history in the Charlotte area
Approx. attendance anticipated for a live show at the Muse
Website/socials and live and recorded video and music links.
While we review every request, if you are an up and coming act, we strongly encourage you to network with established acts to schedule a show opening for them or let us know if you see a compatible act that might be interested in your support.. Unfortunately we cannot always get to all of the EPKs submitted, so setting up a show with an established act is the best way to get your first show here, or to schedule a return date more quickly. You should also come to our weekly Monday night Open Mics to get seen and heard by a large audience, as well as our staff members.
We book about 3 months in advance.
2. IS THIS AN ALL AGES VENUE?
Unless otherwise posted, most of our shows welcome all ages. However, on occasion we might have a performance that requires 18+ due to the adult nature of the content. Some of the comedy shows might fall under this category. We will post on our website if the show is 18+, or adult supervision suggested.
