Reservations

Steps To Make a Ticket Reservation:

  1. Click SHOWS on our home page
  2. Go to the DAY of that month for the show you’re looking to attend
  3. If you cannot make a reservation, the show you selected is either 1) Sold Out.  2) Not on sale yet (see below for When to Make a Reservation). or 3) First come, first served seating. Click the BOX that says MAKE A RESERVATION on the calendar for your desired show date
  4. You will then be RANDOMLY placed in a Queue-It line (When a show goes on sale, we use the Queue-It system to help handle the thousands of visitors that visit the page at the same time for our limited number of seats)
  5. When it is your turn, you will enter the reservation page and then select the number of seats you’re wanting and at what table (Note: you must choose number of seats. You are not reserving an entire table if you choose 1). We do reserve ALL seats at each table, so if you are a smaller party at a larger table, you’ll get to make some new friends!
  6. You will be asked for your credit card and billing information for the non-refundable show cover charge and $4.00 reservation fee (plus tax) per person.
    • You can only reserve up to 6 seats per order.
    • **It is important to note that we have a limited number of seats available for reservation. The Bluebird is an intimate music venue with only 20 tables inside (of varying sizes). Should you be unable to make a reservation, we have some seating in the church pew areas that are first come, first served for our early shows at 6:00pm and 6:30pm.

SHHH! POLICY:
We encourage talking before the show, between sets and after the show but ask that during the performances,audience members keep their voices low and talking to a minimum.

In the Round vs. In the Row:

  • In the Round: Our signature style has the songwriters in the center of the room, where they perform together, telling stories and accompanying each other. It’s a unique set up that allows the audience an up close and personal experience of how songwriters create their music.
  • In the Row: Where the songwriters will perform their music on-stage.
