The Great Room is based on University Presbyterian Church of Fresno’s campus - a progressive church that accepts people of all sexuality, race, and walks of life. The Great Room is run with no overhead (courtesy of the church) and by volunteers. We book both local and touring acts and all door sales go to them. The space is alcohol/drug-free, zero tolerance for hateful speech, and zero tolerance for violence towards others/the space.

Amber Rindosh
Do It Yourself Promoting. I have been highly influenced by older punk rock bands since i was a teenager. I listen to bands like Social Distortion, The Ramones, Minor Threat, Dead Kennedys, Dropkick Murphys exc. Mostly older hardcore punk rock but i love the mellow stuff also and classic rock as well. I will book any genre though. I don't judge any one for their sex,religion or race or for anything. I love the scene and would like to get more bands here and different stuff not the same old stuff in Redding every show. I am willing to donate my last cent to helping bands and shows. I will do what i can do help the scene and make sure it doesn't just die out. Contact on FB or arindosh [at] yahoo [dot] com

Joy Gallery
Joy Gallery hosts music shows. A safe space that welcomes everyone. We mostly have our events on Saturday evening, however, we are open to hosting on Fridays, and possibly Sunday (early shows). To to make their show a little more unique, acts have an oppurtunity to personalize the space to suite their band or other musical project. I have a full PA, some mics, etc...we can be loud. All door money is for the bands. Although we are pretty cool for our age, we aren't as connected as we once were in our 20s. we highly encourage all acts to promote! Unfortunately our bathrooms are not wheelchair accessable. Contact: joygallerysf [at] gmail [dot] com
