This gig is not currently accepting applications. We think you might like these similar gigs.


Connie’s Ric Rac is a legendary performing arts venue located in the heart of Philly. We also serve drinks. However, we are not a bar with a stage. Although we have over 50 craft beers available, our product is who’s on our stage, not what’s in our fridge. Connie's is currently looking for Sonicbids artists this summer and we're looking for the best Sonicbids artists to come and rock the stage.
