Time to apply for another prime gig!

13th February 2014 by Emma Scott

We had a brilliant time at our last Emma Scott Presents gig back in January and are now looking forward to the next one on March 1st at the O2 Academy….. so what’s after that?

Maybe you will be playing live for us?

We are now taking applications for our next big O2 Academy 3, Birmingham show. It’s going to take place on Saturday April 19th. We haven’t got any kind of genre in mind at this time. We simply want to put the best gig on, with the best bands, so if you wanna play, get in touch via the contact form.

We will go through the applications (this will take around a week from now, Feb 13th) and then start contacting the bands we like. Once we have a headliner, we’ll start booking supports to match that band. We usually have an acoustic opener too, so feel free to apply even if you’re a solo musician.

We don’t care where you’re from, but obviously we are going to need some Midlands bands that can pull a crowd before we start booking bands from different parts of the UK. Please be aware of this if you are applying from outside of the Midlands.

Anyway, what are you waiting for? It’s often “first come – first served” in this game.  Get over to the contact page now and tell me all about your band and why we should book you. It’s gonna be a great gig:-)

Good luck!

We do radio plugging too:-)

12th February 2014 by Emma Scott

As well as putting on live shows, our Emma is now doing radio plugging. Her new business is called Pluggin Baby and it’s going really well.

She’s been working with many bands and artists since last summer and getting them all played on various radio stations – all over the globe. Have a look at the website to see what she’s been up to.

If you’re releasing your music and would LOVE to hear it played on the radio, make sure you get in touch with Emma via the website and she’ll talk you through the benefits of plugging and the process of booking a campaign with Pluggin Baby.

Quick update

22nd June 2013 by Emma Scott

Just to keep you in the loop with all things Emma Scott Presents:-)

Our next gig is on Friday July 5th at The Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton with 4 excellent bands that will rock the roof off;-)

My Great Affliction and Voodoo Sioux co-headline this gig, so you’ll get 45 minutes from each band.

My Great Affliction are back for 2013, with their new 3 piece line up. The Black Country band have played Download Festival in the past, and I think they’ll be there again one day! Check them out: www.mygreataffliction.com

Shropshire’s Voodoo Sioux have recently released their album:  ‘Grotesque Familiares’, and I can safely say, it’s one of my favourite CDs in my car at the moment. Make sure you pick up their album at the gig, you’ll love it!

We’re please to add Kill Chaos to the bill. They’re travelling all the way from Sheffield, Nottingham and Mansfield – so I hope you’ll give them a warm Wolverhampton welcome! We think they’re pretty special and hope you agree.

Kicking off the night are Never the Last Breath. They play a bit of everything, really!  Progressive Hard Rock/Rock/Jazz/Brit-Rock/Death Metal/Funk/Classic Rock/Avant Garde… so make sure you get there early to check them out!

Doors open at 7pm. It’s an all ages show. Tickets will be available on the door, or from my store with no booking or postage fees.

See you there:-)
