Stage and Equipment

Our stage is approximately 16 x 18. Stage-lighting and a PA with mics, cables, stands, and some other equipment are provided. We have a vintage Rogers drum set (circa 1968) available for most bands. We also have a Hammond organ & Leslie (A-105 and 142) available for most bands. Bass and guitar rigs may also be available. Please contact Jesse at if you’d like to use any of this equipment during your performance at the Rooster.


Details about the timing for your performance are indicated in your contract. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Jesse at Please be ready for a sound check at least 30 minutes prior to the start of your performance. It’ll be helpful to read the room during set breaks. If it appears that the crowd is dwindling during your break, it’ll behoove you to begin the next set as quickly as possible.


We submit our calendar of events to local radio/print media, but you may want to reach out independently to let them know about your show. Here are some links to the key media outlets in Madison:


Print: Max Ink Magazine, the Isthmus, & the Cap Times.

We will also create a Facebook Event and (if possible) add you as a co-host. Please share this Facebook Event widely and do what you can to promote the show via social media with your fans/friends.

Please print three posters for your performance and either drop them off or mail them to us about a month before your show. Here are some files that might be helpful in creating your poster and other marketing materials.
