Local Talent Listing

Local Talent Directory

One question we get asked the most is “Do you know any bands that can play this date/ I’m looking for a covers band/I need acts for a gig or private party can you suggest anyone.” Often we will suggest your band’s name without you even knowing it was us but we try to pick a band fitting to their requirements.

This info will be passed to promoters/venues and selected for reviews.
