Well, I'm sure they pay the big names or those who threaten them, but if they think they can get away with it they will stiff you. As an extension to the customer scam WranglerGuy described in his review, they promise you one thing and then duck out. They promise 80 percent of the door after the first five people. When the show is over, however, the manager is long gone. This is not a matter of one or two unscrupulous employees. This is STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE at this venue. I've had several other musicians warn me about it, but until it actually happened to me I didn't believe it. What a rip off. If you like live music, please get out and see some. But go to Eddie's Attic or any other place where they don't have a formal policy to rip off musicians. Support venues that treat ALL musicians fairly, not just the big stars. A pox on SOB—the acronym says it all.
Pros: nice sound & stage, one of few acoustic rooms in Atlanta
Cons: They don't pay their musicians
