The Rutledge, located walking distance from downtown Nashville, TN, is seeking artists for showcases and live performance. This non-smoking venue has a capacity of 232, outdoor bar and grill, and capabilities for live streaming and 24 track live recording.

The venue is named after Rutledge Hill on which the building sits. It consists of split level seating with an unobstructed sight line, state of the art sound system including subwoofers built into a sand filled stage, sound absorbing floor and a multi faceted lighting system. It features a custom made copper topped bar surrounded by original 19th century brick walls creating the ultimate atmosphere.

Live music is presented 7 nights a week, with an average of three artists per show. Bands perform a minimum 30-45 minute long set, and songwriters perform for an average of 20 minutes. This Rutledge is currently booking local, regional, and national artists of all genres 2 months in advance.

Artists must be able to provide recommendations or names of local venues they have been in contact with and/or played. Having friends in the Nashville area is a huge plus. House PA, engineer, drum kit and bass rig available.

Bands get split from the door after $200 production costs, 25% off of food, and free well drinks. Tabs get better when sales get better. No artist pays out of pocket if no one shows up. Industry showcases are exceptions and have different standards in place.

Past performers include: Cage The Elephant, Jeffrey Steele, Emily West, The Dresden Dolls, Be Your Own Pet, established songwriters(this is Nashville), Miranda Lambert, and more.
