Music Venue Owners and Managers

Overview

Music venue owners and managers are responsible for the overall success of a music venue. They book music acts, oversee employees, and play a role in the hiring and firing of staff. While owners have the final say in the club's business decisions, managers handle the daily operations of the venue, such as hiring, training, and scheduling staff members, planning music programming, checking music and bar equipment, and ensuring the safety and cleanliness of the club.
