You might have heard on the Grapevine that we’re holding regular events around the South-West, encouraging venues to get involved in promoting and supporting grass-roots music, with a programme designed to support and assist all performing musicians from first-time open micers, to seasoned gigging professionals. At Freestyle we’re working hard to get young and new talent seen by appreciative audiences, we’re helping more established performers to get higher profile gigs, more media and airplay, and we’re collaborating with other venues to formulate cohesive events that can generate real revenue opportunities for working artists and venues alike.
This is for musicians, bands, venue owners, local media and radio presenters, T Shirt printers and merchandise producers, promoters, entertainment secretaries, industry suppliers, hire companies, catering firms, record companies, recording studios, rehearsal rooms, music shops, poster designers, tattoo artists, guitar builders…. well you get the picture, all are welcome, including music lovers, i.e. our much beloved audience!
We’re going to put on some scheduled acts each month, and have an open mic section and a jam session. Alongside the music we hope you take the chance to talk to those around you and make really great connections, promoters seeking new bands, bands seeking musicians, radio presenters needing original material to air, suppliers (we have a great audience for you to talk to about your products), music shops, come on over and meet some new customers, hire companies talk to venue bosses, T shirt companies sell your services to bands/promoters etc, festival organisers come and meet bands, music lovers, press, legal professionals etc. We want this event to be great fun and useful. Use it as meeting place to have serious discussions (we’ll provide a private room for you), or just come on down and chill with your mates.
We want you to share this though social media with your friends and colleagues; we have lots of room at Freestyle and the more the merrier!! If your’re a musician or a band member and you want to perform at one of these Fridays, then please do drop us a line. email@example.com
