Who are we?
By day, we're a wedding band, we play for weddings, hogmanay, even corporate events.
But by night, our aim is to create a network of musicians through open mic nights and gigs set up around the west central belt, using social media to live stream and connect all the performances into one online networking community.
Why is creating a network of musicians important?
Through our work, we often get asked "do you know someone who could do..." and most of the time, we do. We want to use our opportunities to pull in our network, finding the right people for the right paid jobs.
It's so difficult creating paid work in the arts, we want to find a way of making the right people get the right work, so the customers are happy, and the artistic community thrives!
What your pledges on our Crowdfunder project will be used for.
You got to spend the money to make the money - to spread our music over different venues, we will need more pa equipment than we own just yet - Halo the band has its own PA, but a pa or two for open mics, gigs, comedy shows... We could have several running at the one time, making Glasgow a hot-spot of Halo creative activity.
The dream for the future of Halo...
Long term, it would be beautiful to buy a central venue, and give it to musicians for gigs, for free, with a pa they could use, thereby burning the barrier of money to new good live music.
