Excitement is building as plans are well underway for our Launch Party on Friday 8th February, 7pm at one of our favourite venues – the Barn at Barnsdale Lodge Hotel, where the best of our exclusive and talented acts will play together in a ‘Jools Holland Show’ format.
Many tickets have been allocated to event industry businesses, but the remainder will be on sale to the general public at £20 per ticket from 10.00am on Friday 25th of January on ‘eventbrite’ here…
On The Night
The evening will not only present an excellent network opportunity for our preferred suppliers, it will also see performances from some of the UK’s leading and award-winning musicians: Funk Soul Brother, The Houndogs, The Atlantics, Eleanor Turner, Monroe Duo and Calder McLaughlin. This will give the audience an idea of the breath of musicianship that is available for all types of event from private parties and weddings through to public performances at festivals, venues or as part of concert programmes.
The venue is being transformed into a live music club atmosphere by installing two specially designed stages featuring professional sound systems and lights shows, bespoke furniture and mood lighting.
There will be a main stage for the bands and a smaller acoustic stage for the solo and duo acts, with performances alternating between the two. This is all being installed by the DG Music and Pure Artists sound and lighting crew to demonstrate the breadth of what we can provide in terms of sound and lighting production for events.
We will also be adding comfy sofas, coffee tables, lit poseur tables, candles and more!
We could not put on this event without the support and sponsorship from local companies and our good friends:-
Barnsdale Lodge Hotel
This is one of the best venues in Rutland and ‘The Barn’ offers a large, flexible space for us to produce the event in the way we want and the staff are always super-helpful.
Natalie Hewitt Wedding & Event Planner
Natalie is an award-winning wedding planner and one of the best in the UK. We are grateful to her for offering to help co-ordinate the event for us and for making things run smoothly on the day.
This local marquee supplier fronted by Tom Dodson will be providing backdrops for the stages and sofas and coffee tables for guests to relax.
This local company are specialists in vehicle and trailer fleets, event management, event logistics, and roadshows. We are most grateful to Director Tim Cook for sponsorship and assistance.
The entire event is being filmed and photographed by our new in-house partners Modular Media. Fronted by Nick Caro the team will be capturing the event to produce new artist promotional material as well as a short film about the event.
Pure Artists Sound & Lighting Team
Our dedicated sound and lighting team, headed by Danny Hern make an invaluable contribution to so many of our events and they are working hard to showcase everything they can do at this event.
DG Music Staff
The staff at DG Music are the ones in the background making all of this happen. So thanks to David Graham (Director), Josh Budgen (Sales), Abigail Richardson (PR & Marketing), Harriet Flather (Social Media) and Anne Mortimer (Accounts Manager).
Of course none of this would be possible without the involvement of our talented artists. It is they that make Pure Artists what it is and it is they who will make this event one to remember!
Outstanding Musicians – Represented Exclusively
Says David, “Pure Artists is a new division of DG Music where we represent our artists exclusively. This close working relationship enables us to deliver a service that cannot be matched by larger agencies representing acts they may not know nor have seen perform. We know our all of artists personally and have worked with most of them for over 10 years, some for a lot longer.”
See you there!
