We cannot attend your dance or gig if we do not know it is on.
Melbourne and Victoria is well served by free Gig Guides.
The one here on VicRock is excellent. Yes, you do have to be a Forum member, but there is no fee and you will not become a target for spam.
Listing as early as possible helps to minimise scheduling clashes.
Do not assume your "friends" on Facebook are enough to get the word out.
Even if your event has been running for years there will still be people who are first timers, so make sure to include all the details - date, time, where, how much, band, BYO or bar, contact for bookings, etc.
And, if it is a band gig in a bar, please make a comment about whether there is room to dance.
Last week we went to a pub we never go to and danced to a band we have never heard of. It was an excellent session, and we only found it by accident, and we were the only dancers.
Right now the long search for places to dance each week makes me feel like Sherlock Holmes.
Please use Gig Guides to build up your audiences and to make my life easier.
We are Clover Bistro from Dandenong Workers Club. Our club has not been making good use of your gig guide so far ... Is that anyway that we can publish our list of monthly gig guide in your web? Does it come with a fee? We are currently publishing a full page advertisement on Rock & Roll News. It will be great if we can receive more information about how to make better use of your gig guides for updating our monthly gigs to our patrons. A million thanks for all the superb help, guidance and support!
