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!

No, we really are 8 to 9 people, no steel drums

Three guitars, female vocalist, bass, drums, congas, other percussion, keyboard.
