LIVE SHOW FAQ
AM I GUARANTEED A SPOT TO SEE THE BAND PERFORM?
Shows at JBTV are free and open to the public. An RSVP will place you on the general admission list for that taping. There is a capacity limit at JBTV Studios, so please arrive early. General admission entry is based on a first come first serve basis until capacity is reached.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?
Bring a fun, rocking attitude and your photo ID to the show to check in.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND?
You have friends? Hahaha, sure you do... Yes they can come too, but they must RSVP separately. Your confirmation only secures a spot in the studio audience for one (that's you!)
WHERE IS JBTV LOCATED?
318 W. Grand Ave. Chicago, IL 60654
Got a map?
DO I HAVE TO BE 18 TO ATTEND?
We want people of all ages to enjoy a JBTV experience, but most shows are normally 18 and over. However, if you are accompanied by an adult then that is totally fine.
CAN I TAKE PICTURES?
You can take pictures on camera phones, disposable cameras, trendy Polaroids, etc. but absolutely no flash photography or professional cameras are allowed. We have JBTV photographers and staff taking great shots that will make their way onto our website.
CAN I TAKE VIDEO?
Ehhh... Why would you want to? See above but JBTV is best experienced while enjoying the moment without a smartphone. You can always watch the HD quality footage on our website!
I WANT TO TWEET OR POST ABOUT THIS AWESOME EVENT!
WHERE CAN I PARK?
There is metered parking near our studios on Franklin Street, as well as along Grand Avenue, but please be aware of their 2 hour limit. There are also several pay parking lots nearby.
WHAT IF I PREFER PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION?
Smart move. We are a few blocks northwest of the Merchandise Mart Brown Line and 6 blocks west of the Grand Ave. Red Line stops. Plus it’s only a mile walk north of Union & Ogilvie Station!
WHAT IF I’M RUNNING LATE?
Don’t. Once we start rolling cameras, our doors are locked and will not be answered. Please arrive either on-time or early!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Normal clothes are fine, but we ask that you not wear any large visible branding or logos. Please no costumes either. Unfortunately, we’ve been asked this question enough times to make the list!
