Please sticky this mods! I thought this would help everyone here who likes networking

Anyways, a way how to promote your band in different areas of the UK are by exchanging gigs ie:

Band A from Manchester

Band B from Cornwall

----

Band A asks B in this thread if they could support them in Cornwall, in return, Band B will support A in Manchester vice-versa.

I love this idea. Definitely worthy of a sticky if it takes off. My band is currently me and a drummer. But when we find a bassist we'll definitely join in

Whilst I like the initiative, I feel that this should be in musicians wanted/comments. I'll leave it open till somebody can comment or move it.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

great idea, as long as people follow a few caveats.

if you're offering to do gig swaps, make sure you have enough of a following. unless you're doing headlining shows and getting people to them in your home town, you shouldn't be offering gig swaps. otherwise, it defeats the object.

similarly, if you're looking to gig swap, look at what the other band is doing. playing with a bunch of no marks who no-one goes to see might not do you much good.
my name is matt. you can call me that if you like.

Well, not exactly a gig swap...i hate those, as you can lose out on oppertunities. I was thinking more of directory for promotors in need of an extra band or something xD
