Hi Jaydo,

Just a bit of advice regarding getting cover work, your best bet by far is to get yourself some high quality promo material which you can show to venues/clients.

A bio, good quality photos, and recordings (video is best) is what you need. Don't bother with any half arsed videos taken on a phone at the back of a pub like many bands do. Getting in a studio or a nice location is the way to go.

As someone who books bands, I won't consider even looking at a band unless they have some good material which I can show to clients.

Good luck, and please feel free to ask if I can help with anything else

I've seen a lot of high quality videos with over dubs and when the band play live, its like chalk and cheese.
If I was looking to book a band,I want to see an honest real, live recording of what I'm going to get,not a bullshit fake mastered recording.
F$$k the agency and keep it real because those people only want to hear 80's or Tribute bands.
These are the people f**king up this industry forcing bands to play crap so they take the money and you get fck..all.
