Polecat Tavern is a place for live music and we are now booking for Saturday Evenings and some Friday Evenings.

We are booking for Solos, Duos, & Trios only. Our tavern is quite small, only 1640 sq ft for the whole place so it can be very intimate. We are now booking our Spring/Summer Schedule and the performance hours are 7pm – 10pm and pays $100.00 per band member with two beverages per member included. We will allow a 4 piece but the max pay is $300.00 total for the band.  We understand that this is a little below what many of the venues are paying but we are very new with a very small room, only about 60 seats after staff and band are counted, and we pretty much have to fill the place to pay for the night. Your performances will help us grow and as we grow, we will add more nights and hopefully pay more to our wonderful talented performers.

We have a PA with up to 8 inputs. We have a small Alesis Nitro Mesh electronic drum kit, or you are welcome to bring in your own electronic kit, but we prefer not to use acoustic kits due to the size of the room. However, Cajons or other single acoustic drums work well in the room also. You are welcome to bring in your Merch to sell. We can provide a table if needed. Please let us know and we will be sure it is available. And don’t forget your tip jar!

If you are not well known in Carson City, then this is probably not the first place you want to book. Not that we wouldn’t want you, we definitely would, and yes when we have been open longer and have a larger client base, we will be definitely booking more out of town acts and for more money. But in the meantime, why not try one of the larger venues first and get some attention here in Eagle Valley. That being said, if you are still interested in booking, we would love to have you, please complete the form below and we will be in touch. Thank you for your understanding.


Thank you for your submission. We will be in touch. In the meantime, please consider attending one of our Open Mic Thursday Nights or Sunday Afternoon Jams. We would love to meet you and hear your stuff. It’s a lot of fun!
