Thanks for your interest in Palm Coast!
Our intent is to book a variety of music that compliments our facility and is well attended.
Bands/Performers are typically booked 1 to two months in advance for Friday or Saturday nights. Just to clarify, we are not a club; we are a coffee shop (and a little more). Guarantees are paid to performers/groups that have either a local /regional following and therefore attract a crowd. Most performers are successful selling merchandise and rely on tips. Palm Coast is an outdoor venue that lends itself to acoustic music. Because we are an outdoor venue weather can sometimes be an issue. We are open to many genres. We generally do not book metal, grunge, and prefer bands and performers with original material. We do not provide sound equipment.

Step Two: (Promotion! )
Promotion of your act or group is very important for initial or continued bookings.
We make a big effort to promote our events, including our website, in-house calendar of events and utilizing local media. In large part, however, the promotion is up to you!! We need approximately five 11×17 posters and a stack of quarter sized flyers. Flyers should include a short description of your music or a media quote. They should also be mailed out to us at least 3 weeks before your show date.
Be sure to send your information to the local media. They are very responsive and supportive.

Step Three: (Parking – Unloading –etc)
Load in time is around 6:30 p.m. There is a side alleyway between our building and the shops next door called Oglethorpe Ave. If you are touring with a van and/or trailer it will be easier for you to go through the light on Kingsway/Ocean to your next right and then take a right at the first stop sign. Once you turn you will see the back gates to Palm Coast . This will put you and your gear close to our stage. Enter through the back gate. Our stage is located in the center of our side and back courtyard. Parking on the island is a sport, particularly with a trailer. After unloading you might want to park in the area in front of the pier which is 1 block south of Palm Coast. There are a limited number of parking spaces on the street surrounding Palm Coast. Please make sure that you observe the no parking or reserved signs.
Palm Coast provides a laid back atmosphere for our patrons to enjoy music so we ask that bands perform around seventy five minute sets with 20 minute (managed )breaks in between. (This keeps your listeners and our customers having a good time! )Downbeat at around 8:30 PM– Show is complete at 12 am.
Our patrons enjoy sitting on both sides of the stage – so please keep this in mind while setting up your PA. Most bands do typically face forward towards the main bar while preforming.
Palm Coast is a 1940’s home- so there are limited power outlets on stage. If you rely on multiple outlets please be prepared with extension cords and power strips. It’s a 30 min drive to Lowes/Wal-Mart and all of our local hardware stores close at 5pm.
There is a “mini” stage to the left of the “big” stage that is a great place to set up merchandise. Feel free to use the table that is already set up there.
SOUND LEVEL- The stage at Palm Coast is located between our building and a two story structure next door - It doesn’t take a lot of volume to fill up the space- there is a noise ordinance in the village. Please adjust your overall sound check down. If you are instructed to adjust sound levels – please make the adjustment immediately.
Palm Coast Coffee’s stage is equipped with a low impedance input jack connected to the main indoor sound system. (basic speakers connected to a receiver) PLEASE USE THIS CONNECTION– When you are setting up your equipment on stage plug into this jack so your music can be heard inside the building.
This jack is a female XLR and is designed only for line level sources. Connected to the jack is a short yellow TRS cable for connecting to your equipment, should your equipment not have an XLR output. This yellow cable is property of Palm Coast Coffee, so please leave it on the stage when you are finished performing
Acceptable sources for the XLR jack to the house:
Main L/R output on the rear of your mixer, Line output of the front of your powered PA head, Loop output on the rear of your power amplifier.
This jack is not designed for speaker level sources, and connecting it to a speaker output from your equipment will destroy our equipment.
For tech support concerning this capability please contact Anthony at 912 222-4874
The on duty bartender is your primary contact for questions. please introduce yourself to them as you arrive. This is also the person that will handle compensation at the end of your performance.
Please be mindful of what you leave behind! We provide trash cans to the front and left of stage for empty bottles, broken strings, string packaging, etc.
DO YOU KNOW are acquainted with others that would like to perform at Palm Coast?. Please have them contact us via booking on our web site.
Last but not least Enjoy yourself!– we have great customers that love great music.!
