Venues/bands

Heya,
Were a new sort of business-we promote and organise music events in South Wales-and we were just wondering if there are any venue owners/ band members out there that would be interested in working with us.
Get in touch,
sunny ('')

Probably not the best forum for venues and bands. I am sure ther are local band forums that would be much more useful.

I used to promote bands in Manchester. I suggest going to the local music shops and talking to the people there. That is how we got all of our bands and venues.

I'd recommend contacting the venues your interested in promoting and seeing what they offer/charge etc and then get yourself of MySpace to find some good local talent to promote!

Good Luck!

I once did a post on here to ask about music taste and the answers were very depressing. so dont hold out much for you here.

Who are you promoting at the moment and have you got anything lined up in Wales that doesnt involve lilting male voice choires and pretty girls blethering on about the bleak hills?

I once heard coal described as Welsh rock.

by a welshman.

"sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboat-bobbing sea.." There's lyrics to be reconed with.

(Dylan Thomas for those of you who dodged education)

My best advice for this, is that in general people don't want to see unsigned bands. Your customers are the bands and not the people who come to see them.

I suggest selling advanced tickets to the bands, this is also known as pay to play. This way you will break even before the event and you will get a much better turnout at the events. If a band says they can bring 50 people, this usually means 5-10. Believe me we know this from a lot of experience in this area.
