JAYA Music is a pay for play venue. It is really amazing how many excellent musicians perform at area bars, restaurants and coffee houses for free just to get their name out there, while nearly everyone attending was invited by the musician to begin with. Now there is a venue where you get paid for invited your family friends and fan base.
HOW MANY ARTISTS PERFORM AT ONE SHOW?
Up to five artist can be booked. Each artist will have between 30 minutes and 45 minutes depending on the number of tickets sold. The advantage is that you will be playing in front of your faithful and in front of new faces who all love music.
HOW DO I GET PAID?
JAYA Music Showcase allows musicians to get paid on tickets they sell. The artist is paid $3 on every ticket they personally sell up to 9 tickets. If the artist sells 10 or more tickets personally they receive $5 for every ticket they sold. Example: Artist A sells 8 tickets to their family and friends, and Artist B sells 25 tickets to their fan base, and yet Artist C personally sells 40. Artist A would receive $3 x 8 = $24, Artist B would receive $5 x 25 = $125 and Artist C would receive $5 x 40 = $200.
Artists are paid the night of the show.
CAN I SELL MY CD AND MERCHANDISE?
Yes. You will have a small table to sell your cd's and merchandise. All money from your table is yours.
CAN I PROMOTE FUTURE PERFORMANCES?
Yes. We have video monitors above the stage and around the room. We can project any information you like during your performance including your upcoming shows, cd/tshirt for sale, cd cover art. Just send in advance.

WHAT KIND OF GENRE IS ACCEPTABLE?
As of this time the only genre we are booking is Jazz, Blues, Pop, Acoustic, Folk, Bluegrass, Country and Christian.
Performers may be asked to submit a copy of lyrics before the concert date. JAYA Music Showcases are intended for entertainment only. Therefore we ask that all music be kept family friendly and no "hate" lyrics of any kind will be allowed on our stage. This includes womanizing, homophobia, racists and any other hate related and sexual act content. Remember, you are sharing the stage with other artists who also have their fans in attendance. Someone singing about detailed sex acts would not mix well with the 20+ audience members there for the next act, which might be a Gospel singer. If your music cannot be performed in a PG-14 manner, please don't request to be booked.
WHERE DOES THE OTHER $6 PER TICKET GO?
The JAYA Center is home to Just As You Are, an open and affirming Christian faith based house of worship. Most venues have bar and food sales. We have neither. As a matter of fact, we provide complimentary coffee and punch/lemonade. The remaining money goes to the house to provide electric, wear and tear and other expenses related to producing the event. None of the $6 goes to staffing. The JAYA Center, Just As You Are and JAYA Music are all volunteer organizations and no one receives a salary or compensation.
