The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive. Together we can help them.
Crowdfunder are offering up their platform to allow all UK small businesses to pre-sell their meals, events, hotel bookings etc. for cash now on a promise to redeem these at a later date.
Hello friends, neighbours, and all music fans. Some of you may know that Maverick Projects was about to launch a new music venue at AMP Studios.
We had programmed regular live music events for the spring and summer months: -and were excited to welcome Neil March's regular night Vanishing Point ( (Demerara Records), Primordial Soup, Telegraph Hill's Festivals Punk Rock Karaoke night, Andy Hankdog's Easycome Acoustic night and Scotty Watson's open mic night.
We had submitted our application for an Arts Council grant that funds the basic set up costs of new music venues https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/funding/project-grants-supporting-grassroots-live-music. and were confident that we would receive it as we were introducing a new venue to The Old Kent Road.
WELL WE ALL KNOW WHAT HAPPENED NEXT. The crisis has resulted in all Arts Council funding being ring-fenced to support artists and organisations already on their books. So, we have been thinking how to proceed with readying AMP Studios for the moment we can reopen our doors without Art’s Council support.
That’s why we are asking you to donate anything you can to the AMP STUDIOS MUSIC FUND help us get South East London’s newest live music venue off the ground!
We believe AMP Studios will become a favourite among music fans, we offer a fantastic space with a large outdoor area for musicians to perform, collaborate and get to know each other. AMP Studios will be the place to come and watch your favourite new, alternative and upcoming artists. And with your help we will have good equipment to support them. WITH YOUR HELP WE WILL BE READY to ENTERTAIN you.
And this is a chance for you as a musician, music fan or promoter to be a part of this community. We can build this thing together . We will be committed to showcase the best music south London has to offer (and beyond). When we open, please get in touch if you would like to play at one of our programmed nights or open mic nights. There will be new and exciting opportunities for you.
WHAT YOU GET IN RETURN:
In return you will get a membership that gives free entry to 4 gigs and 1 free drink at every event.
We are looking for donations so we can purchase the following:
a stage, lights, amps, mixer and speakers, microphones, leads, fitting a storage container. We had already invested in a bar set up and some sound curtains..
LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU ALL ON THE OTHER SIDE!
The Maverick Projects team.
