TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The
music presented at the Urban Harvest Farmer’s Market and the Houston oasis is
90% local and 100% organic!
Before you decide to fill out the application, please be sure your act
fits the following criteria:
Do not continue unless your
band: 
1 …Does not use electric
guitars, drums, or ‘tracks’ (Only two exceptions have
been made, and the circumstances were truly unique).   At the Eastside Farmer’s Market,
your tent will be less than 10 feet from the vendors – electric guitars and
drums make it very hard for the vendors next to you to hear their
customers.  At the Oasis, the room
is very quiet – like a house concert.
Loud acts will not fit in here!
2 …Does not use pitch correction
or autotune
3 …Performs family-friendly
material
4 …for the Eastside market,
the band must provide their own PA system.  (The Oasis provides the system and an
engineer.)
5 …Has two hours of secular
material (Religious music of any denomination can come
across as ‘proselytizing’. Our customers come from a wide array of beliefs
and wish to shop without feeling as if they are being recruited)
6 …RECIPROCATION: Your band
agrees to promote the gig as you would any other gig you have.  This includes your FaceBook page,
website, or newsletter. The Urban Harvest Eastside Market and the Houston
Oasis will do the same for you.
We are proud of you, and we hope the feeling is mutual.
7 …Have you read the FAQ page?  Click here now before you forget!  
8 …Our bands understand what the word ‘secular’ means.
9 …Agrees to turn down the volume if the venue manager asks
you to.
10 … Agrees to accept payment
for appearances at the Urban Harvest Market via paypal and will accept
payment via company check for gigs at the Houston Oasis..
11 …Understands that if you
cancel without notification or finding a replacement, (see next point) you
will not be allowed to book with us again!
12
Agrees that if their band cancels an appearance at the Market, the
original band will find their own replacement from within the roster and
forward the $25 payment to that band directly.   
13
Understands that a live recording is required for consideration.  Studio recordings are unacceptable for
booking purposes.
All
yesses? Great – Please proceed:
