Mississippi Pizza Booking Policies

Mississippi Pizza has music and events every night of the week. Early shows start at 5:00 or 6:00 p.m. (depending on night of the week) and are family friendly. Late shows start at 8pm or 9:00 p.m., or at which time minors are not allowed on the music side of the restaurant.

How to request a booking:

Email video and promo materials to our booker Dan Eichler at booking@mississippipizza.com. Please include upcoming dates you have booked at other venues, which helps us better place your event in our calendar. We book one to three months in advance, so please allow two weeks for a response.

Bands keep 100% of door proceeds.

Early shows may put a tip/donation box out (we have a box), but artists cannot charge a required cover at this time.

9pm shows may charge a cover at the door. Bands can bring their own door person, or request one in advance at a cost of $40 (minimum) to the band.

Bands may bring their own sound person to operate sound from the mixing console at the back of the room. Many bands set up sound themselves via the front mixing console on stage. We can also provide a sound person through advance request at a cost to the band of $20-$25 per hour.

Bands are required to promote their shows via press release, posters, and social media. Please see our Portland media guide. Mississippi Pizza promotes all shows as well, via our website calendar and social media platforms. We also pay for paid advertisements on Facebook.

We compensate all performers with tickets redeemable for any beer, house wine, well drink, slice or salad. (One ticket per set, ie. 2 tickets per 2 hour performance) See the bartender in the lounge upon arrival for tickets and general assistance.

Please adhere to the start and stop times of your event, as bands following you may need set up time. Last events must end 45 minutes before closing time: 11:15pm Sunday through Thursday, and by 12:15am Friday and Saturday.

After receiving a confirmation of your event from Dan, please confirm back by completing our agreement form.
