There’s more to being in a band than being in a band
Ahhh London, that huge, inhuman, impersonal place where rock ‘n roll dreams come true. Where to begin in this manic, chaotic mass of people and places?
Rock Bands in London is a place for London based bands and those who can help us (promoters/photographers/video makers/web developers/etc). London has a fiercely competitive music scene. Many of the rules that apply to live gigging in the rest of the country (or world even) don’t apply here.
There are loads of blogs and groups on how to market as a musician but none of these seemed to have any real life experience by actual people in bands! And there was absolutely no information on the London scene. So after playing and managing my band DonkeyBox for 10 years in London, I took up the gauntlet and started Rock Bands in London as a Facebook group. The group on it’s own was useless so I then set up a meeting forum where musicians meet twice a month. As this group expands we can offer promotion and marketing advice from musicians who have actually been there, and form a mastermind of committed and active musicians in London.
The idea is simple. Musicians in London get together, discuss the challenges we are facing and then help each other out.
