What I Do
Primarily I am The In-House Gig Booker & Promoter At The Birds Nest In Deptford, South East London. I Am Also An External DIY Promoter At Select London Venues As Well As One In Bournemouth. Sometimes I Do Tour Bookings Plus A Bit of A&R.
As A General Rule I Only Put On Gigs On A Friday & Saturday With The Occasional Sunday Early Finish Gig.
However Good Or Popular You Think You Are Is Irrelevant As I Only Put On Acts That I Like, However Big Or Small.
