If you are confident in your following and want to make some money, this option is a perfect fit. The Well will set up online ticket sales via Eventbrite as well as create a Facebook page where the tickets can be purchased directly.

In addition, The Well will set up a register for the band to use to take door sales on the night of the show. It is the Band's responsibility to have someone to take door sales. At the end of the night the sales will be added up and The Well will write out a check to each band.

 

The Well will retain 25% of the door sales. The headlining band will get 50% of the door sales, and the opening band will get 25% of the door sales. If there is no opener, the band will get 75% of the door sales.

We will require any customers who are in The Well to pay for a ticket to stay.

 

Keep in mind that The Well does not do any paid promotion. Promotion is solely the responsibility of the artist.
