More Caffine please…

Posted: September 14, 2010 in Just another Day...

Another early – ish morning in The Brickmakers household. I’ve had three cups of coffee in this hour and still I believe that it was too much to ask of the caffine to help me out this morning!  So far today I have managed to update facebook, tweet once or twice and update a couple of my personal web pages.  The social network machine has finally shifted into gear!! I then started on the task of booking gigs for next year, both for the pub and personally.  It’s quite an art really, we have 364 gigs to book for The Brickmakers, half of those date have support acts with them so were looking at nearly 550 bookings to make. The trick is to fit everyone in and make sure they all get a slot. It never ceases to amaze me the wealth of quality bands we have here in Norwich, in fairness I could have double the amount of days in a year and still not be able to keep everyone happy. 

So it begins…. we usually start booking around the first two weeks in October but there are one or two bands I know will get booked up fairly quickly so I have already called them and confirmed dates with them before it gets a little crazy.  After this I don’t tend to make many calls.  Band know we start booking in October and for the best part of that month we know that the phone will be red hot.  By the end of October I can guarantee that we will be fully booked up to the end of 2011 with maybe the odd Tuesday free here and there. It’s an awesome time and also gives us a chance to try out some new bands on a Friday that have been working hard all year to build up a fan base in the area. There are some great new bands coming up through the ranks of the local music scene. Watch this space!!

I’m still working on the website, however Monday madness took over yesterday and I didn’t get as much done as I needed to really, and I’m behind on an advert deadline… ooops…again. there’s always something I seem to forget. I guess thats my cue to get my butt in gear and get a move on… Here goes – come on Tuesday!! give me what you got!! x
