The Paradise Rock Club is a general admission 933 capacity venue that primarily books national touring acts and large local bands. All bands at this level come as packages so if you are looking to support a show please understand that most likely the tour won’t let us add anyone. This is the case 99% of the time so contact the band playing and ask if they would like an additional support band and you may have better luck. For headlining the Paradise Rock Club, the act should have played the Boston market and developed a following large enough to have sold out venues like the Brighton Music Hall, Middle East Downstairs, etc. If you have not played larger venues, you should start at the appropriate level club and work your way up developing your fan base along the way. Also, please understand we will research your band so please be honest. Booking is handled by Crossroads Presents at 617-547-0620. The Paradise is not open to outside promoters and all concerts are booked exclusively through Crossroads Presents. Please understand we get an enormous amount of inquiries of bands looking to support shows, headline, etc. and it may take some time to respond to each inquiry.
