Book Your Event

contact: events@sentientbean.com

For booking, please send an Email to Sentientbooking@gmail.com. Please include links to your music (Bandcamp, Soundcloud, youtube, etc.), available dates you'd like to perform and any additional information including press quotes or links to articles regarding the interested artist. Acts that have a strong local support interested in playing are more likely to get booked, please include all information regarding local act.

 

 All booking inquires are handled via email, please do not call or mail any unsolicited materials. We do our best to listen and consider every request, however we cannot respond to all. We strive to book talented performers that we truly enjoy and believe our audiences would support.

 

The Sentient Bean is a small space with bouncy acoustics. The room lends itself to acoustic music, however, we are open to many genres. We generally do not book metal, punk, grunge, or cover bands.

The Space

 

Used as seating during the day, it is easily transformed into a comfortable and semi-professional performance space. During shows, the coffee house offers light meals, beer and wine, fresh baked goods, as well as coffee, tea, smoothies, etc. Crowds are typically from 20 to 70 people

Features

 

Great acoustics | vaulted 22 ft wood ceiling | modest 10×11 ft stage | seats up to 70 | seating can be arranged with tables or in rows | PA System: two house speakers, two Sure mics with boom stands, Mackie 8 channel powered mixer | spotlight | smoke free |

 

Payment

 

Just to clarify, we are not a club, we are a coffee shop (and a little more). We do not pay guarantees, and generally performers accept donations and tips. If you’ve never played The Sentient Bean, we will most likely operate under a suggested donation, however, if a strong local is added to the bill or a you are a well known performer, a cover charge can be initiated. If the Sentient Bean decides to book your band, the details of payment will be handled during the scheduling process.

 

*Please note, our visual art space is fully BOOKED THROUGH FALL 2015*** The Sentient Bean, though not a gallery per se, typically has art on the wall that is offered for sale. We consider the shows as adding to the general ambiance of the place and a way of sharing local talent with the community. We have no set policy as to what we will or will not accept; rather we choose whatever tickles our fancy and are under no obligation to explain ourselves. We are willing and excited to hang artwork that deals with sensitive topics and frequently we push the boundaries of what is acceptable, but even we have our limits.

promotion

 

We make a big effort to promote our events, including our website, in-house calendar of events, extensive email list, and our facebook page. In large part, however, the promotion is up to you!! We need approximately five 11×17 posters, and a stack of quarter sized flyers if you have them. Flyers should include a short description of your music or a media quote.

Be sure to send your information to the local media. A contact sheet will be emailed to you in the booking process.

Rental of the Sentient Bean

 

Generally speaking, we do not rent out the Bean for any private affairs during normal business hours.  Arrangements can be made to rent the space after hours; please see after hours rental policy. Many groups have small (12 people or less) meetings at the Bean and just assemble space when they arrive; we encourage groups to call and give us a heads up and let us suggest a less busy time.  We do not charge for small meetings.  Any food or beverage served must be purchased from The Sentient Bean. We sometimes allow filming during business hours as long as there are no lights in use, customers are asked for their permission, and it is not too disruptive.  We reserve the right to interrupt and/or cease filming on our premises at any time.

After Hours Rental Policy

 

A $100 deposit must be paid one week in advance

The proposed schedule must be approved by the special events manager.

 

A Sentient Bean employee must be on hand during the entire rental period and the renter must pay this employee $15/hour.

Renters may not use the space until 10:30 pm and must be out of the space at 5:30 am.

 

In addition to paying an employee, the renter must pay a minimum of $200 and $100 for every hour beyond the first two hours. This amount must be paid in advance with a good-faith estimate of time needed. An extra time can be either paid at the end of the rental period or taken out of the deposit.

 

After all fees are paid, if no damage to the property or contents has occurred, the $100 deposit will be refunded.
