High Dive Sound specifications
Check out the High Dives' sound and stage specifications.
Our basic philosophy at High Dive centers on the idea that we are a community. We thrive on our connection with bands, musicians, artists, writers, and fans to create a healthy environment where all types of art and music can be appreciated. We continually strive to support both local and national talent, and believe that any individual success equals the success of the community as a whole.
Above all we want quality, talented, professional bands performing at High Dive. Indie Rock, Alternative Rock, Punk Rock, Alt-Country, Pop-Rock, Electro-rock, live Hip-Hop, live Soul, live R&B, and Jam Rock are the types of music we typically showcase. We are open to showcasing and highlighting all genres of music, but cannot cater to every band.
Please also keep in mind that we need your band to bring in at least 15- 30 people to a weekday performance, and 60+ people on a weekend. If this is not possible, please wait and contact us when your draw has grown a bit. We are always open to working with up & coming talent, but want to make sure a performance with us is more than just a resume builder. There are many smaller venues in town where you can build your fan-base.
Tips to Getting a Show
It is not always necessary to mail us your press kit. If you feel it is necessary, please feel free, but email is our favorite way of communication. Please use the email us at the address below, and include as much information about your band as possible.
What venues have you played and on what nights of the week?
What other bands have you played with?
What is your average draw for a show?
Include a link to your bands website, including a direct link to your music and any press you may have received
Be persistent, but don't be a pest. Our Talent Buyer does his best to reply to all the emails he receives, but he does get swamped. If you haven't heard from him for a couple of weeks, please try again, and he will contact you soon if he thinks you are a good fit.
