Christian Venues

Christian Venues for Christian Bands

This is a list of venues run by Christians to help your Christian band with booking. It is not a recommendation of any particular venue for every band. Do some research to make sure your band’s ministry is a good fit with the venue.

Please e-mail marie@ChristianBandHelp.com if you know of venues that might like to be included in this list. We do not add venues without their permission. We send e-mails to venues asking if they would like to be included and for their contact information. This list is updated as the venues respond.

Rhode Island

Name of Venue: The Upper Room Coffeehouse
Name of person to contact for booking: Rich Canning
Venue address:1221 Main Street(2nd Floor)West Warwick,RI  02853(not a mailing address however)
Phone: Cell 401-345-6101 (we are not at the ministry full time, only on Saturday evenings)
Venue Web Site: www.thearticmission.org
Preferred styles of music: While we have no preferred style of music, our crowd prefers a full band, not a solo or duo act
Other pertinent information (links to Band info pages, best way to contact for booking etc): The best way to contact for booking is by email. My email is rich@theupperroomri.org. We link band websites on our web page, plus in our calendar. We link their web site and I send out a weekly email that gives folks a web site link so they can hear what they sound like.

We are a small Christian coffeehouse that is independently run. We are not a part of a church ministry as most coffeehouses are. This requires us to take an offering for ourselves first and then a “love offering” for the band. We have room for around 112 people standing room only. Our coffeehouse is part of a Christian Outreach ministry that we started in 2001. We are located in West Warwick, Rhode Island and are open every Saturday night.

Because we are small and independently run, we do not have the financial means to pay for travel expenses or a fixed sum. We can only offer the “love offering”. The love offering can range from $40 to $120. This hardly covers gas for a group. If you decide not to play at our coffeehouse we would understand. We pray that the Lord richly blesses your ministry.
