Thank you for your interest in playing at Serda's Coffee Co. Unfortunately, Serda's no longer books music. The license organization SESAC has threatened Serda's with a lawsuit for violation of copyright laws. I understand that you will be playing your own music and will give us permission to play your own music and you are not a member of SESAC, but SESAC does not care that you are an up and coming artist. They just want their money as you can see from the response I received from their licensing consultant, Ross Wright.
Since this is clearly a large corporation taking advantage of their power over smaller locally owned businesses who can not afford the massive legal departments that SESAC can afford, Serda's has decided to just no longer book music.
I wish you the best in your career.
