  1. I have been gigging around pubs, clubs & hotels for years but since applying for gigs on live and loud every venue says I'm unsuitable

    I wonder if these venues are genuinely looking for live music as an experienced pro musician amazed at being rejected by every single application and I applied for many.

    • Message read/unread status

      When viewing your sent messages, a either read with date or unread status. I'm sick to death of sending venues messages and receiving no reply. Either the venue are just plain rude or they haven't logged in and saw your message or booking request. When I first found live and loud I thought it was amazing but I'm slowly becoming frustrated by lack of venues.

      • Send venue messages.

        send reminders to venues that you have requested a gig. I find it really rude when you just get idnored or overlooked. If they decline also the abillity to send feedback as to why they have declined. It's really annoying when you can see a event that you applied for weeks ago gets to the day of the gig and still not filled or booked. Maybe if the venue were sent a reminder this wouldn't happen.

          We currently send a weekly reminder to venues about requests that they have received. We will have a look into sending feedback when a request is declined. Thank you for your feedback.

          • Act size

            You should include a selection bar that allows you to specify the size of an act, whether it be solo, duo, trio+

            • Allow bands or artists to bid for a event

              If a event is advertised for £200 but say a solo act is willing to play for only £150 you can send the offer to the organiser along with the booking request. Also the ability to add terms to the request would be good.

                    • Filtering events by Fees

                      Would be good if there was a way of filtering events for less than for example £400 ? most events advertised seem to be "no fee" and its a waste of time scrolling through them all

                              • Event sorting options for artists.

                                It would make the L&L website/service more useful to both artists and venues if you could display the performance opportunities by distance and fee offered. This would mean that the artist could filter out gigs that were either to far away or were too low paid.

                                This would benefit all parties as the venues would get appropriate applications to suit their location and budget and the artist could filter out any gigs that were either too far away or with too low a fee (or both)

                                      Here is a step by step process for adding your Facebook page onto your Live&Loud profile:

                                      - If you have Facebook linked already, go into the edit profile section (which you’ll find on your ‘My profile’ page) and remove it.
                                      - Go to Facebook and click on the down arrow in the top right hand corner
                                      - Click ‘Settings’
                                      - Click ‘Apps’
                                      - Check to see if Live&Loud is there; if it is then remove it, refresh the page and then go and log into your Live&Loud profile. If it isn’t then log into your Live&Loud profile.
                                      - Click ‘Edit profile’ (which you’ll find on your ‘My profile’ page)
                                      - Scroll down and click ‘Add Facebook account’
                                      It will then ask you to either ‘Continue as ’ or to log in to Facebook. Either way you are connecting your personal account because your artist page is managed by your personal…
