Band Bookings

Thanks for your interest in the Session Room at HopMonk Tavern – Novato. Our everyday objective is to host top-rate local, regional, national and international talent. We cover a wide range of formats. While we do our best to respond to all inquiries, we regret that’s not always possible. Local acts may find the Wednesday night open mic a good way to get to know one another. We also book solo, duo and trio acoustic based acts on our beer garden stage from May through October. Thanks for checking us out.
