Limelight Stage & Studios is conveniently located only steps away from the Wang Center in Boston's Theatre District. Primarily a Japanese-style karaoke stage and private studios, we are now opening our doors to live music. Limelight is actively seeking musicians and performance artists for immediate openings for Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. There are 12-15 slots available each month with at least one reserved for Sonicbids artists.

Set lengths will vary. The venue will be available to you from 6:00-8:45pm (including sound check and show time). The doors open at 9:00 to the public for karaoke, so the time frame is strict. A local draw is necessary. Artists have the option of using the entire time for themselves, or sharing the bill with another act to help bring a better draw.

Venue must be guaranteed $250 either from the ticket sales, a 2 drink minimum from guests, or a combination of both.  This guarantee covers the costs of waitstaff, door person, and overhead for the venue.  If this guarantee is not met  through ticket sales or food and beverages,  the artist is then responsible for covering the difference, payable to  Limelight Stage & Studios. 

After the venue guarantee is paid, all ticket sales will go directly to the artist.  Artists are also welcome  to  do a split bill to share the venue guarantee.  Artist also receives 100% of merchandise sales.

Genres accepted include: A Cappella, Acoustic Rock, Pop, Jazz, Cabaret, Drag Shows, Country, and Singer-Songwriter. As long as it's not super-loud, we're open to it. A great venue for up and coming artists and also for local artists looking for a downtown show.

Limelight also has a bar and appetizer menu for guests.

Selected artists will be compensated for their performances from the door after venue guarantee.
