Private Events


    These rounds feature 3-4 hit songwriters who share the stage and their songs with your group. An intimate experience, these performances offer listeners (your group) the chance to connect withthe craft of songwriting as well as giving them an inside peek at the inspirations and stories behind the songs. Our event planners will work with you to secure hit songwriters who you feel will be a good fit with your group and meet your budget. These private performances can also include a “Meet & Greet” with the songwriters. To complete your experience, we can provide autographed CDs or copies of The Bluebird Cafe Scrapbook (a collection of stories from Bluebird founder Amy Kurland and many of The Bluebird’s regular songwriters) to give to your group and the performers can autograph their CDs/scrapbooks after the performance. Please inquire about other collectible Bluebird Cafe merchandise available for purchase.

    *Performances priced upon request.


    Bluebird Cafe shows have been featured at the Disney Institute in Orlando, FL, at Park City, UT and Sundance, UT, The Troubador in Los Angeles, The Bottom Line in NYC, The Raue Center in Crystal Lake, IL, The Emelin Theater in Mamaroneck, NY, The Dyer Observatory and Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, TN and more! In addition to these offsite performances that have been open to the public, The Bluebird Café also organizes private offsite performances. These performances have been held in locations as varied as The Country Music Hall of Fame and Cheekwood Botanical Gardens to your very own backyard!

    Our event planners will work closely with you to make sure that the “magic” of The Bluebird is translated to your chosen location and that it is in keeping with your vision of the event as a whole.


    The Bluebird is available for private events throughout the day and into the evenings. We offer a variety of rental packages (for up to 90 people) designed to meet your group’s specific needs. Whether a corporate performance event, showcase, reception or video shoot, we are happy to work with you to provide a legendary location for your private event that your guests will remember. Please email our events coordinator for pricing: 


We offer two options for beverages at your event.
· “Open Consumption” where the renting party is responsible for the cost of all drinks consumed including both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
· “Cash Bar” in which case the renting party’s guests are responsible for their own drink costs.
We charge regular Bluebird bar prices on all bar tabs.  Either situation can include full bar, beer&wine only, or strictly non-alcoholic beverages including iced tea, coffee and soft drinks priced at $2.50 per person (including refills).


Catering/ Other Food Options:
Our event planning team can suggest the best way to provide meal options for your group. Our small kitchen is great at preparing light appetizers. We can provide passed appetizers, light buffets and individual table appetizer displays. For full entrees and larger meals we recommend outside catering.
We have a list of preferred vendors who we work with on a regular basis and we are happy to coordinate with them to meet your event needs. If you choose to arrange catering yourself*, we require that your caterer supply all plates, flatware, serving pieces, napkins, etc.
Catering set up should be buffet. Depending on the menu and number of guests, the caterer may need to bring in an extra service table and their own staff to maintain the food display.


For large groups we recommend carpooling and/orbus transportation. We are happy to advise you on how best to coordinate your guests’ parking for your specific event.



“We were incredibly pleased with every aspect of our private event at the Bluebird Café. From the initial planning phase to the moment the last guest left, every detail was handled perfectly. Thank you for helping us create a very memorable, “Nashville” experience for our special guests. We can’t wait to come back!” -Florence Chassaignac, Director of Operations – Heritage Group
“We had the experience you hope for with The Bluebird – they exceeded our expectations in every way. From the initial contact through the full event, they delivered.  We held a songwriters night at our new space for clients, prospects and community friends.  They are still talking about that event six months later. Jaime booked great talent, managed the production and made The Bluebird @ the engine a roaring success. And if that wasn’t enough, she made it easy!” -Janet McDonald. Principal – C3 Consulting
“From the first call to Jaime, until the last song on the historic Bluebird Stage…. It was a tremendous event!  Our agents are still raving!” -Carrie Benton, Manager of HR & Administration – TIS Nashville
“BlueSky is known for having great events for our customers and partners and our night at The Bluebird Café was no exception.  It’s been over a month since we were there and we are still getting comments about what a great event it was.  Thanks to the special performances by George, Georgia and Marv – and the great service from Jaime, Jimmy, Tony and the entire staff at the Bluebird – we all had a night to remember.”  -Terri Kershner, Director of Marketing – BlueSky Technology Partners
