Assuming you can't get 50 people along and you have to hire a PA and potentially a sound engineer to keep you sounding good enough to charge on the door, it's not really a financially viable option for most of us in original music groups.  It's a shame this isn't an actual music venue as it could be cool.  Chris, stick in a PA, remove the 50+ thing and you might be on to something.  Look at how they are doing it in Cellar 35.  It's good to see a potential venue of your size but if you want to properly get into it you have to take the rough with the smooth!

How do you know? Have you already inquired about the venue hire charge?

I'm really really interested in this, espeically if its on the premise of "if you can get 50 people to turn up and can provide your own backline, we'll just let you do what you want as far as the music goes and won't charge you anything, and will only charge a small fee if there's less than 50 people" That's exactly what is needed in Aberdeen and has been missing since, ironically, Drakes closed down.

Admittedly, getting rid of the 50 person thing and having an in house PA would make life a lot easier, but its certainly still workable.

All depends on what the fee is for under 50 people to be honest. A PA system is pretty easy to come about, would be a consideration if your going to do this kinda thing to put one in, you could pick one up pretty cheaply. 

 

Wait, is this the old Drakes?

Winner, it would be really weird being back in there! To be honest 50 people should be achieveable if your going to the hassle of putting on a gig. 4 bands, 10 people per band plus a few randoms, easy.
