BandBase is owned by myself, Lee Wilson, and run by me and a small team of adminstrators.
We have been providing our service to performers and live music fans since 2001. We started with a simple idea: To give live music performers a presence on the web and bring them altogether under the same site.
When we started, we were focused on the southeast region of the UK (Kent and Sussex), offering bands an opportunity to get themselves on the web. We also provided an agency service to our members, and arranged many bookings for weddings and corporate functions.
Now, in late 2008, we have increased our coverage to the whole of the UK. We now have over 1800 venues in our database, and our list of performers is constantly growing. We recently joined the TicketMaster afilliate programme, and provide links to ticket sales where available on our gig guide and venue pages.
