WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC?
From Classical and
jazz to country, pop/rock.
It is our belief that music is music. We have music every day
and for the past 4 years we have opened our doors to all
musicians.

WHEN YOU GET A GIG AT GIZZI’S

We expect the following from you:
1. Pop/rock/country artists:
It must be your own original music. However, we would allow a
cover or two.
2. Jazz and/or Classical musicians:
In addition to jazz standards or the music from world and
classical repertoire, we encourage you to play your own
music.
3. All Musicians Performing at Gizzi’s:
We expect you to promote your gigs and not play at least
two weeks in the New York area before your show at Gizzi’s.
As a matter of policy, we want all artists to strictly
follow our guidelines of not having any guest artists on
their shows, unless agreed to in advance by us. When you get
a gig at Gizzi’s, it will be just you – the featured
artist/s – and those accompanying you.
PA and Sound System: We have an 4 channel Mackie head, speakers and microphones . You do
not have to bring an amplifier. However while we do have
microphones, you can, if you want, bring your favorite
microphone.
MONEY MATTERS
Gizzi’ is a little different from other venues, because it is
primarily a musician friendly club. We have been in business for
4 years under the same management and ownership.
Almost all musicians prefer the tip jar system because
they make more money when the tip jar is passed around
than they ever would with a cover etc. This works for
the artists because we do not take any percentage or cut
from the collection. All the money collected goes to the
artists.

WHAT WE EXPECT FROM THE ARTISTS

We generally schedule four, five or six gigs for an evening.
We expect artists to promote their shows
as much as possible and their fans to make use of
our full menu and our full bar as much as possible
and keep our bartender, kitchen and wait staff happy.
