My project looks to encourage pubs, bars and venues to hold a regular amount of live music. This could be from everyday to a few dates a week. I believe that having a music quarter in London, much like New Orleans, would create community and investment in the area. I am open to all kinds of music being played but I have a close connection with the London jazz scene. I believe the musicians could be funded by a donation based system, making it easy for customers to donate to the musicians when buying drinks or from their tables.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The reason I believe this is a great idea is because it fills a gap that exists in many of our communities. This is due to local businesses not having confidence in hosting live music. However if there is a culture of live music developing in the area it will attract and intergenerational and multicultral community invested in their own locality. I would use the grant to support businesses while the culture develops. Moreover, as in Cuba and New Orleans, where the culture of live music attracts people from all corners of the world, it will bring in revenue from tourism. Finally this project will increase the exposure of people to professional music. This will inspire both people to become musicians and musicians to develop, creating a higher quality of music in our communities and society.
Steps to get it done:
I believe this projet will be successful as I have connection to experienced software developers and many musicians and bars, being a musician myself. I have experience in event management in clubs and venues across London. I have studied at a conservatoire meaning I am plugged in to the London music scene. I have friends who are closely connected to council music services such as Hackney Music Service.
