In regards to Facebook Event promotion, Skipper’s Smokehouse will create an event and add the Artist’s desired contact as an admin on the event page. Feel free to check our Facebook Page events to see if a link has been established for your show. Skipper’s asks that you utilize OUR event page and do not create your own. We have a considerably large audience on Facebook.

Merchandise Sales will be held at a designated merchandise table. The table is clearly marked with a large “Merchandise” banner. It is in the back of the venue located on the deck area. If you need us to provide someone to sell merchandise for you, please allow a two week notification to us.

Super-cool non-commercial, listener-supported radio station. Go to their website, search the schedule for a program that’s genre-appropriate for your act and service the DJ(s) directly as they program their own shows (shocking, isn’t it?)
