HASH7 are music consultants helping to place artists with the right music opportunity. We work creatively with brands and businesses to plan and build music event concepts to create profitable national / international exposure. Some of the brands we have worked with include The Coca-Cola Company, iTunes, Quiksilver and O2. We have an established reputation for organising and planning from start to finish. If you are looking at building a music concept and or event please call us and ask for Al Douglas – Head of Music.
That’s the common question we are asked.
We definitely don’t advise artists to just turn up to a gig on the day without working to promote their performance in the hope to attract fans from the other hard working artists on that same bill. Unless asked to do so it’s not the right way to build a fan base or reputation in the music business.
A good start is with family and friends, if they are supporting your gigs then you are on the right track. You build from there by inviting more people, promoting your gigs and using the most of your online tools.
Try not to book gigs too close together unless you have a loyal established fan base, as you’ll find in a worst case scenario your fans will split choosing one of those close dates booked, thus resulting in a lower turn out to your performance (Boooo!!).
Below are a couple of suggestions that might help you:-
1. Have a realistic target in your mind of how many of your fans you want to come to your next live performance say 50, 150 or a 1000 (you should know your average fan base attendance). Then PRE-SELL tickets to your fans before booking your next gig. Tell your fans that you have to reach a certain target number of sold tickets before you book your next gig and you need their help.
When you hit your target number, book your gig date and give your loyal fans good notice. You will also have the confidence to tell a venue that you have already pre-sold a number of tickets and that you are ready to book your performance no problem. And there you have it a rocking gig to your fans and potential onlookers. This format can also be used if you need your fans to help you fund a tour, an album or a video. Just be realistic with your targets, hardworking and see it through from start to finish. Remember - Because your loyal fans have dug deep in their pockets to help you in advance, reward them with a limited edition single, merchandise etc.
2. Let your band Join forces with another band and perform together – preferably in the same genre, and with the same approximate attendance numbers (obviously not exactly the same fan base ….. that would be silly). Gig every 3 months or so together, this way you have doubled your fan base straight away and the fans look forward to see two great band as well as mingling with the other fans. It’s a great recipe and of course it involves some dedication and hard work. Good luck and have fun.
That’s a great agreement and £90 minimum profit to start with.
Unfortunately if you know your average fan base/ attendance to performances are less than 30 people HASH7 cannot stage you on an Emerging/ Unsigned band nights as we do not agree with pay to play or turning up without any fans or promotion, pubs and bars are better suited for that as their premises are smaller in capacity.
All artists are paid based on their performance and or attendance according to the Terms of Agreement.
Regardless of the venue and organiser’s promotion of each event, it’s only fair that all performing artists concerned can have the confidence of knowing that the event will be full of other supporting artist’s fans as well as their own thus crowds turning up to enjoy the show and purchase merchandise.
All of an artist's financial success comes down to the strength and breadth of the relationships they have with their fans and hard work. It is from those relationships that the artists can earn a living selling music, tickets and merchandise.
