How to get your show evaluated by Pushworth?

Want to join our roster of Artists?

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. 

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

First step, please complete this form and send us links to your current suite of assets. NB No song lists. We only accept Spotify Playlist links that show your cover repretoire. (Easier for Customers). Everything else, load up to Google Drive and send us the link. Cheers

Showcase Stats

Since July 1991, we have showcased 4700 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. Pushworth is the ONLY agency in Queensland that has a trademarked Recruitment Policy.

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 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.

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. Once we have seen you live we will know your value and where we may be able to book you.

If we are unable to book you, we will tell you. 

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
