Monthly Live Performance Showcases
A music-filled night, packed with new experiences, networking and live performance showcases
Show off your live music skills in one of London’s top music venues, meet recording and publishing label officials, and boost your exposure as an artist with our live performance showcases.
Every second Tuesday each month, we take to the road to visit the Piano Works Bar in London. This venue is one of the very best live music bars in the city and is always packed with interested, enthusiastic audiences. There’s also a huge number of recording and publishing label agents that visit, due to the bar’s reputation for finding emerging talent and quality musicians, so the chances of you getting noticed are much higher than at other open mic nights.
We’ll pick six of our best songwriters to play two songs each, along with three of our platinum member songwriters to play a 25-minute set each. Not only is it great fun to watch other artists perform, but it’s a seriously helpful learning experience. From having a trial by fire of networking with well-known names in the industry, to picking up better ways of capturing the audience, these nights are a perfect showcase of the skills you’ve picked up while working with us.
Once you’ve played your show, we’ll give you comprehensive feedback on your performance. Our songwriters and artists will point out what you did perfectly, as well as what you should improve to make your shows even better.
