A brand new original music nightNews
Some good news just in from Brudez (hopefully you remember his "Cold Strange World" which we featured on ‘Hot Music Live Presents Volume Six ‘).
In one of those rare positive moments in life, he has been invited to host his own evenings at Guapa (formerly Tig Oldbits) in Leamington's High Street.
In a world where for the most part, venue owners take the safe & soft option & book musicians to provide inoffensive backdrops to their customers' other pursuits, insisting on covers of songs they already know, in this case he has been given full artistic autonomy to devise his own programme, wholly of original music and definitely not an open mic or jam night. To start with I think the owner (Chris) needs saluting for his vision & commitment to original music, going where most don't venture. (Apparently he connected with Brudez by watching him busk & liked what he saw).
Brudez will therefore be offering purveyors of original music not just the opportunity to play before an audience tuned into such an approach in what is now a 120 capacity space, but he'll also be personally recording sets & working with local videographer Jake Moore to use the results to create videos for the artist's benefit.
Obviously this sounds a wonderful opportunity for local originals artists & I'm sure plenty of people reading this will be interested. There will be an events page up by the end of the week but I thought you'd like to hear about it as soon as I did.
The opening event is on February 29th featuring artists from music platform Fyah Kamp & will run on Thursdays at 1900 with a door charge of £4 to help cover the costs (they are also actively looking for sponsorship too).
I hope that this will be a most successful night: it certainly fills a huge need and Brudez deserves as much support as possible for his commitment, hard work & innovation.
