A local draw is always useful but not necessary. The venue will promote artists new to the area with their website, weekly newsletters, Facebook, Twitter and press releases.

For artists new to the area, Vintage Bistro recommends Wednesday Rising Star -- an artist appreciation showcase. It typically takes two or three trips to the area to create a local following. The promoter can provide media contacts and expects artists to take an active role in promoting their show.

The bistro typically provides free food and accommodation for musicians. Alcoholic drinks are at the working staff discount (50% off). The bistro boasts a full kitchen on the lowest of the 3 levels, creating a delicious all day menu.

For more established groups or groups with a local following, The Vintage will book with a listed ticket price. Usually with a 80%/20% split in favor of the artist. Merch money goes 100% to artist unless the venue is required to provide a person to sell and cover the merch table.

Typically artists do two 45 minute sets, with a short break in between. The split of the sets makes it easier to sell merch, refresh drinks and allow visits to the washroom/smoke breaks.
