Phoenix FM and Eclipse Nightclub staging a series of gigs throughout 2015 and we’re looking for singers who would like to take part AND end up with lots and lots of radio airplay …
The shows will feature three singers – we’re looking mainly for pop and r’n’b performers.
Doors will be at 9.00pm and each set lasts 30 minutes, with the first act going on at 9.30 and the last one finishing at 11.30. Ideally we are looking for singers who perform to backing tracks or very limited instrumentation. Covers are fine but please let us know if your set will be originals or covers or both.
Confirmed dates for future gigs are:
Friday 6 February 2015
Friday 13 March 2015
Friday 17 April 2015
As well as co-hosting the shows and promoting them on air, we will also be recording the shows and producing a special live programme after each show to be broadcast on our FM service and online. We will also be promoting the gigs and programmes in our weekly Brentwood Gazette column too, so we hope that all the performers will get a fantastic amount of local exposure from the shows.
In addition the shows will be archived on our website.
The venue is: Eclipse nightclub, 17 Ongar Road, Brentwood CM15 9AU
The performances will take place in the upstairs bar.
There is no parking available at the venue itself but there are a number of public car parks within walking distance.
We can’t offer any payment to performers but Eclipse will be able to provide some drinks for those performing. Plus we’re hoping performers think of it as an extended session, as the songs will be getting lots of airplay!
As the shows are going out on the radio (which is subject to Ofcom’s Broadcasting Code) we would appreciate it if there is no swearing otherwise we won’t be able to rebroadcast the songs, thanks!
