A. Yes, we are available to host any event. Please contact events [at] thereadyroom.com
Q. How can I book my band to play The Ready Room?
A. As Ready Room is a larger capacity venue, please make sure that your band or bill’s draw is proportional to the space. We also offer the option of renting out the venue for your show.
