For over 12 years, Rusty’s Surf Ranch in Shas played host to an eclectic mix of rock music, from ska and reggae acts to pop singers to straight up hard-rockers. The fun, casual music venue is located on the world famous Santa Monica Pier and is currently seeking fresh talent to add to its roster for Friday and Saturday night shows.

In addition to being known as a great place for showcasing live music, the 250 capacity venue features an award winning menu, so mellower acts will be booked for earlier time slots to accommodate its dining patrons. The sound and vibe accelerate from there, with each act allotted a 60 minute set to play. Due to draw issues, soloists will generally not be selected and the venue will feature 3 acts per show.

All booking is done 6-8 weeks in advance, with more immediate spots occasionally opening up. Bands will be paid with a percentage of the door after the 11th person, receiving a larger percentage for larger crowds. A great soundman and sound system are available to selected artists along with a limited backline consisting of vocal mics and monitors.
