Solo acts and small acoustic groups will be welcome to perform in our showcase sets (15 minutes in length).  Registration for those sets will be opened shortly after the holiday season.

  2. Fill out a request form by clicking here.  You will receive an email acknowledging your form has been received.
  3. We will do our best to book you in one of your preferred times.  Please note that some dates and times are requested by multiple bands, so it helps to book quickly.
  4. Once you are booked, your ensemble's name will be published on THIS page.  Please check this page to make sure you're on the schedule.   No shows will not be invited back to TCMF.

If your group is unable to land a spot on the schedule, you will be automatically added to a waiting list and should an opening arise (they always do), we'll reach back out to you.

We'll be opening registration back up for our 15-minute showcase sets, just perfect for small groups and mid sized groups that require little or no sound equipment.   That will begin shortly after the holiday season.  

Solo performers will be booked for up to two 15-minute showcase sets.  We will open applications for those sets shortly after the holidays.
