The Bull Run Concert Series takes place every Friday and Saturday, with occasional Thursdays and Sundays, at the Bull Run Restaurant in Shirley, MA. Most shows begin at 8pm with an opening act and the feature act by 9pm. The series features many national and international touring acts as well as unknown and emerging artists. The Bull Run Restaurant is a supper club setting with great food and a full bar, and has two concert rooms available for pre-show dinner with a capacity of 300 and 75 respectively.
This series has openings for Sonicbids artists as feature acts (if they can draw the required amount of people) and opening acts. Being an opening act allows new and unknown artists to be exposed to a larger audience and hopefully build their draw. All artists are compensated depending on their draw. Genres accepted include Blues, rock, country, americana, folk and indie.
The Bull Run Restaurant provides a full sound system and engineers unless alternative arrangements are made in advance. They advertise and promote their concerts through their website, mailings, local radio and newspapers, and expect booked artists to promote as well.
Past performers can be seen here and include Graham Parker, 10,000 Maniacs, All About Buford, Savoy Brown, The Country Mile Band, Rick Derringer, Johnny Winter, J. Geils Band, John Hammond, Luther Guitar Junior Johnson, Tanglefoot, and many more.
