How to get a gig

So, if you are looking for a show and you think your band is great get in touch. We’re most interested in what you sound like and we will absolutely put bands on bills that are as complimentary as is possible. We do not make you sell tickets, charge you to play or employ any of the other tricks that some of London’s gig circuit does in order to fleece musicians, we want to be your friend! We will pay you 100% of the door takings after minimal costs, but that said we are not miracle workers, if noone has heard of you then you will need to be taking promotion at least as seriously as us.
