It’s that time of year again when we get bombarded by requests for gigs in the new year.
We’re delighted that so many of you want to play at our venue but we think it’s important that you understand our selection process.
If you have not played here before we need to receive some media from you. Ideally this will be live video (or website link), set-list, brief biography and required fee.
If you have played here before we generally offer those bands that have pulled the best crowds or that we particularly enjoyed return dates without prompting.
Any band not lucky enough to get a date out of us have the option of hiring the venue (including Saturday nights). We charge a minimal fee to cover PA & sound engineer and you get to keep all the door money. We will assist with promotion but essentially it’s down to you.
If you are willing to play an unpaid support slot please let us know. We’re keen to offer young up and coming bands this opportunity. WE DO NOT ONLY BOOK COVER BANDS !
We NEVER give bookings to bands over the telephone.
It’s important to us that we conduct our affairs in an ethical manner and we’re committed to maintaining our excellent relations with the music scene. We treat bands well and expect the same in return.
