Call-out to all musicians in search of a gig!
Now here's an opportunity worth considering...
We promote your music - you promote our venue
Since Coronavirus hit every Tuesday at 7pm
we stream lockdown music
we are now up to gig No:17
The way we choose to deliver streamed music
free-to-view brings us no income and our
Arts Council grant has run out;
so what next...
You can support us, and in turn we can help to promote you.
Have you got, or can you make, a recorded session, ideally circa 1 hour?
We don’t mind if you offer us material you’ve used before
We will stream your gig as part of our Tuesday night series
We bring your performance directly to the homes of our growing following
contact me if you want to take advantage of this opportunity:
We have no money to pay you a fee … however
Whenever we stream music we display a link to a “Tip Jar”;
this is a link to a PayPal payment system to allow audience members
to make a gesture to the artists.
Every penny donated in this way will go directly to you, the artists;
we take nothing for ourselves
I’ve had some wonderful times working with Peter, Emma and Carol up at The Gather. Managed just one glorious physical gig just before the shutters came down on live playing back in March 2020, but even the virtual ones have been great. These folks put their hearts energy and own free time into making the events happen, for the good of the local community and for us artists. They are trustworthy enthusiastic genuine folk.
The Gather is an absolute gem of venue, staffed by good people who genuinely care. After a superb first gig there in March 2020, I knew it would become a regular spot I'd look forward to returning to. Throughout lockdown, the streaming service has been a valuable creative outlet - ironically, enabling me to reach a wider audience than just by gigging there. I'm very grateful for the existence of The Gather!
Long may it continue!
