WE NEED YOU NOW - You Might just need us in the future... The idea here is to offer ALL bands a platform to excel. With a little give and take we can put original and unique opportunities your way.
ALL we need is 1 performance from your band to showcase your music and from there we can look at presenting you at our gigs and presentations all across the UK. It's easy to be sceptical about these things but we are here to answer ANY of your questions about Band Quest. Just think for a second how much things cost you and we can bring those costs down, showcase your band and build up your profile and all for FREE?
Yup! We've done amazing things for a number of bands in the last 4 years and we'd be happier knowing we've done it for more.
With professional and reliable staff we are there to give your music the forum to excite audiences that we create for your band.
Please take your time to read and understand the depth of what we are trying to achieve through Band Quest and the wealth of opportunities and benefits we provide and the measure of previous years success.
Firstly, please take a good look over this new and evolving website. You'll find details of what you can achieve by reading the 'About Band Quest' Platform section. Whether it be part of Band Quests' Endeavour, Cutting Edge, or Pro levels, we'll be looking to work alongside bands in bettering their aims and potential without the need for complex contracts and over burdening commitments (See below for more details on which section you fit into).
Secondly, please put the opportunities into context, this isn't just a battle of the bands. This is about capturing the bands potential throughout the year to come, awarding bands for their efforts in as many different ways as we can find. We have many services which range from free to inexpensive and all are there to maximise band promotion. The competition is only a small section and should be seen as a great gigging opportunity.
Next, decide if you want more gigs, different places to play and more people to see you perform. You don't have to take part in every part of Band Quest, but you will be offered free advertising, inclusion to a professionally released CD, the chance to play at various festival ranging from local to national. It's all CV building stuff at the very least and this year is the start of a growing mechanism set to become national and unbeatable in terms of opportunities.
Finally the logic. We have started the campaign early. WHY? Well the main reasons are a) the more bands sign up the better the opportunities we can create and b) its to give the events we run more time to be promoted. The more that bands promote the shows the more people will come to them and the more we can commit to in advance. We are trying to make EVERY show THE BEST gig possible but its attendance that makes it all work. We can keep bringing costs down if the events are given centre stage, you support Band Quest and Band Quest supports you.
