All live shows take place downstairs in the basement which is sounding damn fine.

So, you want to play Fontana's...

We're proud of our 180 capacity room and it's genuinely world-class sound system run by some of the most talented, efficient, and chill sound engineers in the city.  But as the saying goes, if a tree falls in the forest...  So we welcome your submissions with open arms to hopefully add you to our family of bands with whom we have an open door relationship to come back from wherever their success may take them.

Past performers include Eastbound Jesus, FiKus, Luke The Knife, Sound Remedy, Folkadelics, Jane Lee Hooker, Kung Fu, The Main Squeeze, MUN, Spiritual Rez, Sophistafunk, Turbine, The Wallace Brothers Band, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band and many more.
