Well, This is quite funny. Usually we are the ones asking for gigs to play at but now fate has turned our page.
My husband and I decided to take the plunge in life and fulfill our dream. Open a business here in the lovely state of New Jersey. We are located in a historical town called Smithville. About 5 miles out of Atlantic City.
Here is what we are looking for....ORIGINAL acoustic acts, poets, and local authors in the NJ/Phila area to come and perform at our bookstore and cafe.
We are scheduled to open in early November 2008. We would like to start filling our calender now. We are located in a new and high traffic shopping center. We are also located next door to a place called JD's Pub which also does live acts, something you may want to look into while you are here.
My husband and myself and our dear friend Brian have an original acoustic trio, here is a link to our site..

We play coffee houses, festivals and bookstores. So we have some idea what we are doing. :)
We do not pay but you are welcome to bring any goodies you would like to promote yourself, authors may bring their books to sell, we ask for no cut of this. You can even put a tip cup out if you would like, if you forget one no worries we'll put one up for you.
We will advertise for you in our stores' myspace and if you send me a graphic or flyer you already have we will post it in our store for you.
We are really excited about our project. We hope you would like to join us.
We grew tired of having to travel so far to get a gig so we figured we would make a place.
As far as equipment goes, all you need is you instrument and you lyric book, we have everything else. We will do everything possible to help so you don't have to drag all your gear, we know what a pain in the butt that is, I can't tell you how many amps and mic stands I have sat on or came out after a gig to see rain. AAARRGHHH

More About Me
So here is the deal. If you are interested send me email a song and we can go from there. If you are a author or poet no need to do this unless you jave something saved on your pc.
Here is the catch, you know there always is one, we really shy away from sexually explicit, profanity, heavy political and controversial issues. So please take it easy on us. Don't get us wrong we personally enjoy sex,politics an controverial issues but it just isn't the place for it. We are fine with the whole religion thing as long as it isn't too pro or anti religion.
As far as RAP, cookie monster stuff,electric guitars etc..please don't bother. We are a bookstore. No offense, it just would not work out for either of us.

Thanks so much for reading this. You can email you promo stuff or questions to
Don't forget a contact name and phone # so I can get in touch with you. We are looking to do the music on fri and sat nights from 7-9 and reading/booksignings on weds night 7-9 and sat during the afternoon.
Hope to here from you soon.
Oh there is no age limit here so we don't care if you are a little kid who wants to perform or a Frank Sinatra fan everyone is welcome. The coffee and bottle water is on us.
Susan and Ron
PS. You can even leave some of you cd's or books for us to sell for you.
