Majnun US would like to play Aberdeen. Can you help?

Recommended Posts

We are an American rootsy/blues/rock band called Majnun. We can be heard at Majnunband.com. We are invited to play a gig at the Findhorn Foundation(somewhere near Inverness) in May or June, but we'll need some other local gigs to make it financially feasible (we're 8/9 people). Does anybody have any recommendations? We already received a polite and clear refusal from the Lemon Tree. Any bookers out there? Any bands out there who would be interested in playing with us somewhere?

We do have a good friend in Scotland who would do a lot of the footwork for us.

Thanks everybody for your help.

what do you mean 8/9 members?

Maybe one of them knows that Findhorn is backofbeyondsville and so isn't sure. I've only been there once. It was late summer and it was chucking down fucking hailstones. 'Twas a fun day out for all the family!

I'd agree with The Moorings, I've copied this thread to their forum, maybe Flash can help you out.

You could try speaking to Hen at Drummonds, he may have a night you'd fit in to.

You should also have a look at

www.hubl.co.uk

they have a good venue guide based mostly around the Inverness area, and you can try their forum too.

We might struggle to fit more than 6 people on the stage at once. 6 is the current record. Please enlarge on the 8-9 people part.

More details here from Tariq

Thanks everybody for the info. Yes, we are 8 to 9 people, although last year when we toured Germany we encountered some really small stages and had to pair back our numbers. It was fine -- with six we're just a normal rock band -- three guitars, bass, drums, vocalists, keyboard.

We'll be touring Germany also this trip, so we won't have to walk from America. But we may have to swim the channel.

I'll be following up with the Moorings and Drummonds and the other links you've suggested. Thank you so much.
