What are we up to...
We first came to The Old Abbey for lunch and saw what an great venue it was. With the support of the previous owner Merrick we started putting on events at The Abbey and using the upstairs as our band, Galivantes, rehearsal room. When the lease came up we pitched The Abbey as A STEAM focused hub, bringing in all our contacts to get involved.
We have been putting on events around Manchester for the last 3 years from small acoustic gigs to large club nights under the name of Swing & Shout.. We love using unusual spaces and our passion is for bringing together festival style nights that incorporate live music, poetry, art, circus skills, games, dance workshops, knight's reenactment groups and almost anything and everything!
Live Music is becoming harder and harder to put on. This is due to a mixture of factors such as licensing laws, high cost of putting on a band compared to one DJ, lack of spaces, noise issues, development...the list goes on. However, Live Music is the third biggest income in the Creative Industries in the UK! We need to act now to help small venues as they are the breeding ground for bands to start off. We are proud to be a member of Music Venues Trust which is doing valuable campaigning to help change the laws. And it's not just venues shutting - we need to find fairer ways to help support musicians. Currently massive corporations such as iTunes and Spotify are paying artist 1p per track and pocketing all the profit reducing artists to relying on Live Gigs as there main source of income.
We don't think we have the answer but we want to start finding some solutions...
