How to get your show evaluated by Pushworth?

The landscape of Live Music has changed in Queensland. Our market demands a very different level of service and entertainment post COVID.

Music Means Business events will have a new format from 2022. Upon receipt of your application, we will send you an invitation to perform at an exclusive Music Means Business event at feature Queensland live music venue.

The face of the Australian Music Industry has changed dramatically since March 2020. Venues now carry an additional debt load. Their investment in a Live Music artist, whether it is a touring act, a feature show or a local solo artist, requires a return.

To be considered for inclusion on a Pushworth roster submission, you MUST perform live on stage, at a Music Means Business event so that we can evaluate your show. And off stage, you MUST advertise every show on your Social Media platforms with a baseline of a Facebook Event and a show post across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Tik Tok. You must be actively sharing your Artist Story while building your digital metrics with likes, follows, subscribes and engagements.

How many tickets can you sell to your show? What is your marketing plan? How will you leverage each show booking to build your fan base and attract them to each venue? Can you quantify the value that you offer to a venue for your show?

These are the questions that WE are asked by each client and venue when we submit your act for gigs.

The standard is high. The competition is fierce. Venues want a show. They need to know that when they book your act, it is an investment that will yield them results – income over the bar and the restaurant, heads through the door, tickets sold and additional digital reach for their advertising.

If you perform in a kick ass show and are pro active in your digital marketing and want to build your music brand, then we want to know more.

Complete this form to be evaluated by the Pushworth Booking team. If successful, you will receive an invitation to perform at one of the exclusive Music Means Business events from Feb 2022.

Showcase Stats

Since July 1990, we have showcased 4000 Artists at these events. Of these 50% were ready to gig with Pushworth. 15% were outside our market. 35% were not gig ready. Artists who are not yet gig ready are provided specific market feedback, Artist Development information and encouragement to showcase again in three months once they made the suggested upgrades.

March 2020 changed all Statistics for good.

Clients come to Pushworth for a fully integrated streamline solution for waning audience numbers, brutal market competition vs excessive entertainment cost. With a strong focus on ROI, previous gig history is no guarantee you are the right fit for what a venue needs in its business plan moving forward into this next decade.

Every aspect of running a live music act is huge and takes plenty of energy and dedication. Each of us at Pushworth have a long history of gigging individually so we know what is required to gig week in and week out.

Showcasing what you do on stage at an MMB event is not an audition or a free gig or about making us happy.

It is about one thing only and we assess every single act that we book in the same fashion.

Seeing you live in this generic vanilla environment, gives our team the opportunity to evaluate you on every level, – your capacity, standard, cohesion, stage presence, musicianship, sound production, entertainment value, audience engagement, professionalism, live PR skills etc.

We want to experience your SHOW. That you are talented is already a given. But we need to see your offer. We need to see the SHOW that you deliver. It may be that you may already be working directly or via another agency but we realistically may not be able to book your show into the venues that we work with. We will not know until we watch your show and chat with you post set.

We also evaluate you online – look at your level of engagement, likes, artwork, campaigns and posts, to better understand your organic target market and how you manage your brand narrative.

We do this so that if you meet our market Enterprise Standard, we can offer your live music product to the right client.

Post Showcase, what next?

Once we know where you sit in our market, we may be able to start to offer you gigs in our venue programs.

If what you offer doesn’t match what our clients need in this market, we may not be able to offer you gigs. HOWEVER, we will ensure that you are added to our website and our database for future possible opportunities. You never know what gigs may be offered to us that just may suit you. So once we have seen you we will know your value and where we may be able to book you.

If we are unable to place you, please keep doing what you are doing. Get clear on your Music Business goals and fine tune your product and target market. We will keep watching your journey so that we can match you to an opportunity when it arises.

Once you have performed, we will email you with feedback.

If we believe that we can include your act in our programs, we will ask you for the following:

Onboarding – download, print, complete, scan and return to us

Artist Code – read and understand it

Email us your latest EPK – Electronic Press Kit including:

  • High Res Publication Ready Photograph
  • Bio in Word
  • Song List by Artist Order in Word
  • All your Social Links + Website

Share your Google Calendar with us.

Our programs are booked well in advance so if we begin to work with you, it may take a while to work you into the programs.

Stay Connected. We will always want to book an Artist who delivers a great show live.

This is a Pushworth Event

You will be approached and contacted by people who have seen you at this event. The correct protocol is to direct them to Pushworth to book you as we are the source of their access to your act at the showcase. Thank You
