Hello all....

i am currently building a website that will list all local unsigned bands in and around Guildford (South East England) and was wondering how popular it would be with bands and giggers.

So if you would be so kind to answer a few questions and share your thoughts, it would much be appreciated.

Firstly to the bands....
1) Would you post you gig dates and a little bit about your band on a website free of charge?
2) Would you consider paying for this service?
3) Would you pay a fee to be featured on the Home Page?

And to the giggers....
1) Would you use the website to see what is on locally rather than go to the bands website, if they had one?

Please let me hear what you have to say,

Many Thanks,

Dom

1) Definitely.
2) No.
3) No, because if your site is popular enough, you'll get money from advertisements.

1) For sure.

If you make a good job of the website, making it look professional, yet still able to execute all require tasks, then I'm sure it'll be a hit.

Probably the most important thing, if it looks like one of those piczo sites then it would be terrible.

Hey, thanks for your quick response.

There are a few sites out there that do this sort of thing already but quite frankly they are crap and do not appeal to unsigned and local bands. The site themselves are unprofessional and i will put an end to this absurdity!!

There's a site just like that one you are making for local bands in my city, it's pretty good

But it's all free!

Don't charge dude!

Be honest.
I'd do it. I think that I could stand one night with a man for the financial security of my whole life and the life of my children
And no I'm not gay. I'm 100% straight.

Can't you do all this without having to build a site or spend money with Myspace.com ?

With Myspace you still have to trawl through bands, area etc. This site will have an easy to use, yet advanced search engine that narrows down searches via Venues, Dates, Bands, Genre etc.
