contact: Dan Swenson-Klatt
butter bakery café is a neighborhood coffee shop offering an opportunity for performance or background atmosphere
we wish to support local (minneapolis / tc area) artists, and especially those sharing our vision of creating a more just and sustainable society through community building.
we offer a limited entertainment venue – there is no shop-wide amplification / band size limited to 5 – we do have a small PA system available for assistance with vocals/acoustic instruments – we do allow electronic keyboards.
times are available Mon – Sat -- evenings from 7 to 9 pm or afternoons 3 to 5 pm – we are willing to adjust to fit your schedule.
the shop is open during this time – a distraction-free environment is not likely -- (during warm weather months we can help you set up outside on our front patio for a sidewalk performance)
butter bakery café does not purchase music licensing from BMI/ASCAP/MAFIA/SESAC so musicians should only play their own, public domain material, or those you have permission to play.
while butter is not able to provide compensation, you may collect tips / sell your own materials / promote upcoming paid events. you can expect to be treated to beverages and food from the shop because we like to share our talents also – come early for a meal!
