We can’t offer a minimum guarantee, but bands receive 100% of the contributions at the gate. (We have details on attendance and range of income for bands.) Bands are free to sell merch, and we have volunteers for the merch table.100% of the merch proceeds go to the band.
Attendance averaged 250-300 people for the last three years we’ve had shows. Maximum of as many as 500 people.
We have canopies for rain (for the band) if there are sprinkles. We’ve delayed shows to allow rain to pass through.
We have a professional sound person who volunteers his time to help with necessary equipment (PA, mixing board, speakers, mics, etc.).
Neighbors volunteer as ‘greeters’ and to help sell Grand Oak Opry t-shirts.
Our kitchen has served as the ‘green room’ in the past, and we have a new tiny house space that’s available as well. We have a neighborhood volunteer to provide food and beverages that you request.
