Vera Project Demo Info
The Vera Project’s live concert program is what makes it Seattle’s Premier All-Ages Music Venue. We have a strong heritage hosting artists both local and national and are always looking to welcome more into our history. If you’re a local artist or national booking agent we are the right venue for you. The goals of producing live music shows are to put together exciting lineups that fill our venue to capacity, present a broad range of music genres, and support young and emerging artists. Ideally we try to match national touring acts to emerging local ones to ensure that artists are constantly getting exposed to new audiences and are fairly compensated.

Be certain that we take every demo we receive into consideration and try to place every act that is appropriate for Vera onto bills that suit them. Unlike most nightclubs that host music 6 or 7 nights, the Vera Project produces shows only once or twice a week.  This can mean that it takes a while to get into the rotation and that once you’ve played here once, it can take a long time for your turn to come again. There may only be one or two rock or hip hop shows for an entire month, which means that there are only a few slots available for the multitude of talented musicians in or touring through Seattle. On the other hand, when you are placed, you are assured to have great show.

Physical Demos
Because using electronic media is often faster and more accessible to both artists and venues, Vera encourages people to submit their band online. That being said, we will still accept physical demos and press kits as long as they contain the information outlined under the Online section.

Please send all demos and press kits to our mailing address:
