Musical Performance Information:

Thanks for your interest in performing at the Midtown Scholar.  At this time we are only accepting Solo, Singer/Songwriters with single instrumentation.  

The Midtown Scholar will provide some publicity via, press release, blog and social media, but it is up to the artist to promote their performance.

Concerts are free to our customers, and that means that your payment will be via tips and merchandise sales. 

We love offering space to performers, but we do not have the budget to pay. (We will, of course, make you a free  cup of the best coffee around.)

All of our bookings now take place through an online booking system located at: http://midtownscholar.partnershipplanners.org  

Simply go to this link, (please note that you will have to create an account so you can monitor your request) and submit the 

Musical Performance Booking form.  Please note that we book concerts only on Friday and Saturday nights.

Because we are primarily a bookstore/cafe, our atmosphere is unique and comes with its own set of realities:

1. Your performance will happen during operational hours, and that means the lights will be up in the store and customers are likely to be browsing while you play.

2. We have an excellent soundboard, but we do not have the capacity to run the sound during the show. 

Helping to plug in and during sound check is fine, but we do not have a sound staff person. Keep that in mind, and if you have 

multiple instrument changes, they'll all need to be plugged in at the beginning unless you are bringing sound support along with you. 

Due to the acoustics in the store we do NOT allow AMPS or full PERCUSSION Sets be used for the performance.  

3. Our schedule is becoming increasingly full, and if you're a good fit, we'll do our best to fit you in as soon as possible. 

The approval process may take up to 2 weeks for response.  Your request is important, but with the high volume it will 

be processed in the order in which it was submitted.

If you have any other questions, please email:
