Are you in a great party/covers band? Bistro L!VE wants to hear from you!
Henderson Management is the exclusive booking agent for Bistro L!VE and we are looking for more great party bands to perform at the three venues in 2018...
Bistro L!VE is a chain of live music restaurants with venues in Leicester, Nottingham and Milton Keynes. The three venues have been open and operating with great success for some 16 years now!
Every Saturday, one of the UK's best party/cover bands hits the stage at a Bistro L!VE; where they can find themselves entertaining up to 300 party goers that can include hen 'do's', company parties, birthday parties or just folk on a night out.
Simon from the 'Simon Faulkner Band' - onstage at Bistro L!VE Notingham...
We are in the process of confirming bands to perform a private 'showcase' event at Bistro L!VE Leicester On Monday 2nd Oct 2017 where you will have the opportunity to perform a short 20 minutes set in front of the Henderson Management team, Bistro L!VE directors/management as well as some select regular Bistro L!VE customers. This will give us the opportunity to see the band in person and to see if you are the right fit for the venues.
Before we get to that stage, here's the general requirements for a Bistro L!VE booking...
- A band that can perform a 1 x 25-30 mins acoustic/dinner set (dinner sets are performed early evening whilst guests are dining). Think a Radio One 'Live Lounge' style set.
- A band that can perform a 1 x 45-60 mins party set of upbeat party covers, spanning the decades with a mix of styles covered as well
- A band that carries a good quality P.A system and lighting suitable for 300 capacity live music restaurants
- Acceptable fees for Bistro L!VE are anywhere from £500 to £800, nett to band fees.
- PLEASE NOTE - TRIBUTE ACTS, ROCK BANDS, INDIE BANDS, SOUL/DISCO BANDS, THEMED BANDS ETC WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED. PARTY BANDS PERFORMING A MIX OF MUSIC ARE THE ORDER OF THE DAY!
If you fit the above criteria, we want to hear from you!
In return and if successful after the showcase stage, you will get:-
- Regular work with some bands receiving up to 25-30 dates per year.
- Guaranteed bookings - Bistro L!VE has not cancelled a Saturday night booking of a band since their doors opened in 2001
- Bands are well looked after at each Bistro L!VE venue including a proper dressing room (not a broom cupboard!), complimentary meal for all band members (with a couple of free beers chucked in for good measure!)
- A great party atmosphere with a captive audience ready to be entertained!
