We listen to all submissions and contact those acts which we are planning on booking. This follow up may take anywhere from a week to a month. We do not confirm submissions, or follow up with acts that we are not planning on booking. Please do not contact us to see if we received your submission, as the volume is quite high.
Any band with members under the age of 21 must state the ages of all band members when submitting materials for booking. Any booked band with members under the age of 21 must notify their fans and social media followers that Pete's is a 21+ venue and must have their ID. Band members under the age of 21 should get their hand stamped by the bartender upon arrival.
TIP BUCKET POLICY
Pete’s now pushes hard for a suggested donation of $5, with the sound person working the tip bucket through the room for each band. This has led to greater audience contribution. The first $10 of those tips will go to the sound engineer. (To understand this policy in brief, please consider the following. Pete’s is a free venue with 25-30 seats. Yet, as a quality venue, we maintain (like a bigger venue) a booking staff, a website, a sound crew, a full compliment of sound gear, and of course all of the other expenses that go with running a business in NYC. We are about as close to a non-profit as a tax paying live music venue can get. As such, our sound staff receives compensation considerably lower than that paid at a bigger venue. In order to have a sound engineer at all, we need the audience contributions to support the ‘man (or woman) behind the band’ as well. )
