Legal and Copyright Notice for Musicians

Sleder’s is an original music venue; we do not book artists who perform material copyrighted by other artists. 

On the Porch Concert Series is a monthly showcase featuring performers singing their original work in a concert in a club atmosphere.  It is a commitment to allow artists to perform their music in a concert setting, and the series focuses on performers who write/sing/perform their own material.  In keeping with that focus, all performers need to be aware that “Sleder’s Family Tavern does not purchase music licensing from BMI/ASCAP//SESAC. Musicians can only play their own music (meaning, you wrote it, and you control the copyright) or their own renditions (you arranged it, and you control the copyright) or public domain material.  Make sure all musicians playing with you know this.”  Thank you!
