Since opening in 1997, Tasty World has hosted the finest in local, regional, national, and international Rock, Pop, Country, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Funk, Bluegrass, Punk, Metal, and World Music, with a fair share of singer-songwriters, former child stars, dancing outlaws, and vampire ElvisesIt. Also plays host to salsa nights, fund-raising events, comic book conventions, karaoke, wedding receptions and graduation parties.
Booking calls are taken Wednesday and Thursday from 3 – 6 pm Eastern Time by Murphy Wolford or Mercer West at 706-543-0797. Booking calls will not be taken at any other times. The bartender will not be able to answer your booking questions. If you do not reach us during the specified time, feel free to leave us a voice-mail and we will return your call as soon as we can.
Tasty World is typically booked 6 – 8 weeks in advance, so plan accordingly. We try to build all of our shows around a local headliner. If you are a touring band coming to Athens for the first time, we encourage you to visit the Athens Music Directory or us resources like MySpace to find a like-minded band willing to host you. We do not require you to build your own bill, but having a local to play with could facilitate the booking process. If another band is handling booking a show that has you on the bill, it’s still a good idea to confirm the show with the club via phone or e-mail.
When first contacting Tasty World to book your act, please send us an e-mail with your contact information, EPK, and links to music online. When received, you will be sent an e-mail letting you know that your music is being reviewed, and you will be given further information. PLEASE DO NOT add the Tasty World e-mail address to your band’s mailing list!
You may also mail us a CD and press kit to:
312 E. Broad St.
Athens, GA 30601
Please allow 10 business days for the package to arrive, and then follow-up with an e-mail, or call during the booking hours. We have interest in your band, and we will listen to the tape or CD.
For private party booking call Murphy at 706-543-0797, or e-mail with the Subject Line: “attn: Murphy - Private Party”. We typically host private parties on the second floor, but the first floor is also available to rent. Rates vary, depending on time, day of the week, and time of year. (Night time on a Saturday game day, high demand than a Wednesday afternoon in the summertime.) A soundman and use of our PA system are available upon request. If you need a DJ or band for your party, ask us for recommendations.
