    We 'The Gospel Dogs' are a newish 6-piece rock, soul and funk covers band but we're struggling to get gigs. Can anyone recommend any good bars/pubs where this kind of music would go down well. We'd struggle to play in a lot of the typical smaller venues because of our size (as in band members not physical size!). We have our own PA system too. We're not looking to do agency type function gigs too.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Put your own gigs on. Pretty much all of the venues in Leeds are amenable to being booked. Yeah, it'll cost you but you can get that cash back if you do your own promotion.

    If you're dead good and don't act like arseholes you'll be fine. People will queue up to book you. Good luck!

    Hi I could do with a band like yourselves to play with inbetween at the primrose 10th dec do funk and soul originals and covers

    6 piece would fit in most small places but for covers funk and soul peak at the hi fi and wardrobe

    other places paying for covers are roscoe , horseshoes , black bull, oneills , look where bands playing list playing

    used to be lot more places out Bradford hudds Halifax way at one time

    I fully agree with Agent's advice on this. You can't go far wrong with his suggestions.

    Also...Doc is a lovely bloke and will certainly help get you started.
