Live from The Underground
About the Live from The Underground Performance series:
Live from The Underground is a weekly musical performance series curated and produced by producer/musician/business owner Vincent Freeman and hosted by radio host and singer/songwriter Jamie Gage. Celebrating high quality performing and recording artists living in Vermont, LFTU was launched during the height of the COVID pandemic in mid-2020 in order to offer musical performing artists in Vermont a platform to reach their audiences and beyond on the Internet.

What's your address?
24 Pleasant St., Unit A.
Randolph, VT 05060
We are located in the basement behind the Huggable Mug Cafe. Give us a call or text when you arrive at (802) 431-6267
How do you handle monitoring?
To get the best sound possible we provide headphone mixes to minimize the bleed between instruments.
Should we bring our own gear?
We have a 5-piece Ludwig house kit with HHs, a crash and ride cymbal + stand if your drummer would prefer not to bring theirs. We encourage your drummer to bring their own snare and cymbals
Bass is usually run DI, but you can bring an amp or pedals if you like the tone
Please bring your own guitar amp(s).
SM58s are provided for vocals, but feel free to bring your preferred mic (also considering COVID-19)
We provide headphones for monitoring, but again feel free to bring your own
What are your COVID-19 precautions?
We disinfect all shared surfaces (restroom, doorknobs, tables), sanitize headphones and microphones before & after each session and wear protective masks at all times. There is a sign-in sheet for contact tracing and a 6 person limit to the studio as required by the state of Vermont.
How long should my/our set be?
Ideally you've prepared a 1 hour set, followed by a 30-40 min. interview with Jamie Gage or Jim Yeager.
How do are the ticket sales divided?
The band/musician gets 50%, the studio 40% and the remaining 10% we donate to a non-profit.
