What happens if I ignore my responsibility to obtain permission to perform copyrighted music?

Those who perform copyrighted music represented by SESAC without the required permission may be determined by the courts to be willful infringers. This status subjects the unlicensed music user to damages ranging up to $150,000 for each song performed without proper authorization.

It is much more practical to simply secure a low-cost SESAC blanket license and be sure that you are covered for any and all SESAC represented music that is performed on your premises.
