We welcome your application to book a show at GroundZero. Due to a large number of applicants we receive we have decided to print some guidelines to help explain our booking selection.
PRIORITY WILL BE GIVEN TO ACTS THAT MEET ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA:
1) You create original music and have produced at least one cd/album
2) You have qualities that make your act unique
3) Your music represents cultural diversity
4) You have a local following in our area and can likely provide an audience
WE GENERALLY DO NOT HIRE ACTS IF YOU:
1) primarily play cover songs
2) play at other locations around the Oceanside area (ie. Arrowsmith Brewery, Smoke and water Restaurant, etc...). This almost always guarantees a tiny turnout for your show at GroundZero
A NOTE ABOUT ACCOMODATION: WE DO HAVE ONE BILLET HOUSE THAT IS OFTEN AVILABLE. IF IT IS NOT AVAIABLE, WE CAN NO LONGER PROVIDE ACCOMODATION FOR OUR VISTING ARTISTS. WE DO GET A DISCOUNT AT A WONDERFUL BEACH-FRONT MOTEL THAT WE CAN PASS ON TO YOU. WE OPERATE ON A SHOE-STRING BUDGET AND GIVE A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF DOOR SALES TO OUR ARTISTS. WE SINPLY HAVE NO MONEY AVAILABLE FOR ACCOMODATIONS ONCE WE PAY OUR EXPENSES. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
