LIVE IS THE NEW BLACK ?
In this changing age, Live gigs are hailed as the saviour of the industry, but are they?
The Bedford, 77 Bedford Hill, Balham SW12 9HD Wednesday, October 13th - doors at 6.30 - Free entry www.thebedford.com
How does the 21st Century performer and singer/songwriter break through in this overcrowded and ever changing industry. Is it enough to have recorded a good song or do you have to get out there and play live?
Lets Talk Musics theme for October is Gigs, Tours, Live and More. We are in a world of evolving technologies and new mediums, but the general consensus of opinion is that LIVE MUSIC is even more important than ever, so we have assembled an astonishing line up of experts that will be taking part in Lets Talk Music LIVE. Dennis Arnold from AAA, promoters for Paul Weller, Kylie Minogue, Westlife and hundreds more, Mike Kaufman from Live Nation, the biggest promoters in the world who have recently changed the face of the Music Businesss by doing direct deals with Artists like Madonna, James from the Hole Agency looking after a number of niche artists including the South African performer Johnny Clegg and finally Nate James, the Mobo winning singer who gigs constantly around the world.
Hosted and presented by Tony Moore the panel will be talking about exactly where we are now, and visions of the future, plus answering questions from the audience.
The evening is open to all but strictly on a first come first get in basis. Judging by the popularity of the first two shows it is well worth coming early to be sure of being a part of the audience! Doors open at 6.30pm and the show starts at 7.00pm. There will be exclusive live music performances from Nate James + a special guest.
Questions from the audience are encouraged, so if there is anything that you wish to know about Publishing, the panel will attempt to give you an answer. For those unable to make it in person the show will be webcast live (via the Bedford website) as well as simulcasting into Second Life (see www.dublinsl.com for more information).
There will be an interval at 8.30 and then there will be a full acoustic show that starts from 9pm and runs for the rest of the evening.
