MUSICIANS INFORMATION

Brooks Blues Bar is delighted to move to The Sound Lounge in Tooting SW17 from May 2017 with most of the forthcoming gigs originally booked at The Seven Dials Club (from whence Brooks Blues Bar has now permanently departed). 


The Sound Lounge is a dedicated live music venue and run by two charming young musicians. The Sound Lounge has a proper stage, professional lighting, professional sound equipment, a Cramer baby grand piano (but needing work on it!) and a Roland RD300SX in situ as well as a house drum kit, guitar amp and bass amp.


The Sound Lounge is equi-distant between Tooting Bec and Tooting Broadway Underground stations. Load-in is relatively easy as the venue is on ground floor/street level. There is a small “green room”.



TECHNICAL INFORMATION

Musicians/band leaders are requested to submit a stage plot by e-mail 24 hours in advance of their performance with their preferred positions on stage in addition to their PA requirements with their choices of microphones from the specification hereunder. PLEASE NOTE: Email craftbloke@gmail.com 24 hours before the performance date.


PARKING/TRAVEL DETAILS

Street parking in the side streets is free after 5:30pm. There is ample meter parking until 5:30pm. The Red Route on Upper Tooting Road finishes at 7:00pm with parking for loading-in beforehand limited to 30 minutes.

PLEASE TAKE INTO ACCOUNT AND ALLOW TIME FOR HEAVY TRAFFIC, ESPECIALLY ON FRIDAY PERFORMANCES. Please remember that London traffic is far heavier on a Friday afternoon/evening than on any other day.


TIMETABLE:

Sound-check 6:00pm. Doors open at 7:00 pm although the venue is open beforehand for drinkers and diners. The live performance (2 x 1 hour sets with 25 minute interval OR 3 x 40 minute sets with 2 x 15 minute intervals) will normally start at 8:00 pm.


NB: In the rare event that a gig has to be unavoidably cancelled by the artists at short notice the venue has to claim on its insurance for loss of income. We would therefore ask all artists to be aware that should this occur they would be required to produce documentary evidence of the reason for cancellation in order to produce to the insurance company.


Please note that Brooks Blues Bar and The Sound Lounge are both not-for-profit organisations. We have always tried to keep ticket prices competitive and will continue to do so.
