Music Booking FAQs

Dear Musicians,

We're so honored that you are interested in playing at MOD! Please check out the FAQs below before getting in touch.

UPDATE: Due to our limited available dates, we are unable to expand our roster of local musicians at this time. You can still contact us to be placed on a waiting list.

Can I speak to the music coordinator? 

The only way to contact our music coordinator is through our website contact forms or by email. They work off-site and cannot be reached at the shop in person or by phone. 

Do you book touring musicians?

Unfortunately, no. Due to our regular rotation of local musicians, our limited calendar does not allow us to book touring musicians. 

​What is the payout?

We provide a tip jar in addition to the $100 payout and $10 tab.

How about sound?

MOD provides a PA with a built in mixer and reverb, up to 2 mic stands, a power strip, and a tip jar -- also a stool and fan if needed. Our baristas can provide limited assistance to get you settled, but you are responsible to setup and run your own sound. Our musicians bring their own mics and anything else they may require. You can also bring your own PA and equipment if you are more comfortable with that. We provide a space directly in front of the shop facing our beautiful patio.

How loud can we be? 

We monitor the volume with a decibel reader to keep it at around 75 decibels out of respect for our neighbors.


What kind of music do you host?

We are open to diverse styles of music, as long as the lyric themes are family-friendly and neutral (i.e., please no graphic, violent, religious, political, or sexual themes). Our patio is a community space that hosts a diverse group of Galvestonians and visitors.

What dates are available, and when are the set times and load-in times?

MOD hosts music on most Friday and Saturday nights, weather permitting. Sets are from 6-8pm, and load-in is 30 minutes prior to the start time.

This sounds like a great fit so far! What is the next step?

Awesome! Fill out the contact form provided on this page to get in touch with our Events Coordinator.
