Unfortunately we can’t hold seats or tables. Usually if you arrive at 7:30, you can grab one of the seats and maybe a table!

I want to play a gig at The Piping Hot Chicken and Burger Grill. How can I be considered?

Can I bring recording devices like audio, tape, camera or film to a gig?

No, you cannot record an artist's performance. You would require permission from the artist as per the Copyright Act, as the performance is "owned" by the artist. The authority to allow or not allow such recording devices on the night rests with the artists performing and not the venue.
