Outside of special events, Paddy's currently does not offer compensation for visiting musicians or bands other than donations by patrons throughout an evening's performance. For 30 years, we have provided a casual friendly setting in the heart of Midtown Manhattan for musicians to gain experience and build or grow a following in front of a receptive audience.
