DAY OF THE SHOW

1) LOAD-IN: You can load in anytime after our doors are open to the public. Upon arrival please check in with a TARG bartender for information about the preferred load-in door to use. ****Please respect this request so that we can minimize the inconvenience load-ins sometimes cause with our busy dinner service - thanks eh!

2) EQUIPMENT STORAGE: Please store equipment neatly in the back equipment/dj room (NOT on or beside the stage please). Sound Wizard Ian will arrive at 8pm to discuss tech requirements & prepare the stage. Also if you are staying over-nite, let us know and we can safely store your gear and arrange a pick-up time the next morning.

3) SOUND CHECK:  Line checks will take place before each performance. You will have as much time as you need to get comfortable and make sure things are ready to roll so no need to worry. NOTE: We don't full on checks because we are a family friendly restaurant by day & out of respect for the other businesses in the building (our good neighbours) we have agreed to ensure there is no noise until after 8pm.

4) PARKING: TARG doesn’t have any official parking spots BUT the parking lot may be used (unofficially) after 8pm when the other businesses in the building close. Please check with a TARG bartender for details.

5) BACKLINE: Save yer Back! You are more than welcome to use our extensive back line including 2 4x12 Marshall cabs, an Ampeg SVT Bass amp & cab & Pearl Vision kit . A list of available equipment can be found here.

6) HAVE FUN: kick back and enjoy some classic arcade games & pinball before the show. All performers will receive staff discounts on handmade Perogies & drinks. Sound Wizard Ian will distribute complimentary drink tickets later in the evening.

7) NEED SOMETHING SPECIAL? We are very flexible so if you require any special considerations, A/V setups, lodging suggestions, equipment etc - just let us know. We want your show to go off without a hitch.
