Welcome to the official groupspace of the Band and Gig Society!
There's a few things we'd like to mention at this early stage;
Our first event is likely to be in the form of a light hearted drinking session at a venue and date to be determined. This may well occur before the end of the week so watch this space and we shall let you know asap.
(We'll be having a meeting first and hanging on for more people to get on groupspaces).
The monthly open mic night on New Walk is up and running, this became a very popular event for us by the end of last year so we would encourage having a look at that as there will be many fine musicians passing through.
We are in the process of aquiring a slot on the university radio - LUSH, so if you have any recordings or demos we would be happy to play those for you on the show. The focus of the show will be on bands that have formed at the university and also on Leicester local bands. We'll be talking about local music and events (and selfishly playing a few bands that we really like too). Once its established you will be able to find the details on here and on the groupspaces site.
A jam night is in the pipeline, once a date and location has been sorted we'll be sending you all an email!
The Band and Gig society is for musicians, bands anyone who is passionate about live music. We help musicians to meet other like-minded people and to form bands and we help bands to get gigs at the student union and around leicester.
The main aim of the society is to turn Leicester into a thriving live music scene. Whatever genre you enjoy, be it blues, rock, jazz, folk, indie or funk, we want to help you achieve your musical ambitions during your time at Leicester University.
Welcome to our groupspace! If you havn't given your email address to us and have no idea why you've been invited here, it's probably because someone with a similar address to you has terrible handwriting, so feel free to disappear (or not). We'll be sending an email around shortly with news of events and plans, once we've finished signing people up for the society, so keep your eyes peeled for anything from us regarding socials/jamming/open mics/gigs!
Proper news when we've recruited more members (tomorrow), in the meantime feel free to flesh out your profiles, or get in contact with us about anything you like really.
