ABOUT US

RAGEBREED:


Company Registration Number: 10837564

Director: Karina Sher


Ragebreed was formed in 1996 as a passion helping promoters and assisting signed and unsigned bands, venues, agents, media and fans of the music around the UK.  We have worked with signed and unsigned bands, put on tours and put on events.


Karina (founder of Ragebreed) registered the company as a brand new business in June 2017 and has ventured into club nights such as  RAGEBREED CLUB NIGHT.  The launch date of the company starts with the club night on Saturday 8th July 2017 at Venom Nightclub. Special Guest Eastern Front's "Darren Smith" (Holocaust) will be guest DJying Headbangers floor and we have a special VIP guest Tony Dolan (Demolition Man), founding member of Venom and also member of Venom Inc.  We will be plugging tracks of their new album "Ave" on the Headbangers floor. 


In accordance to this, Ragebreed will also be launching their new online shop which means the company will be selling fashion items such as alternative clothing, jewelry, band merchandise and related accessories. On top of this, they will be branching in artist management, events, fitness classes, meditation classes and  bookings which means they will soon have a band rosta confirmed in 2017.  


Ragebreed Ltd will be holding one event a year called RAGEFEST UK where we will be putting on signed and unsigned bands in Leicester. This takes place at the end of the year and we are happy to take submissions until then. Please e-mail us with details and a link to your music at bookings_ragebreed@hotmail.co.uk

BAND POLICY:    A- E LIST BANDS



***WE DO NOT DO PAY TO PLAY***


This is how we deal with bands.  

We sort them out into this order:


A List bands:  Mainstream (Sold out shows for example, bands that people know which are famous)


B List bands:  Signed & Underground (Bands that have a record company but still in the underground bracket) 


C List bands:  Self financed & Underground  (Bands that have had media attention and conduct themselves like a signed band but are not signed to a label)


D List Bands:  Unsigned & Underground (Bands who have no backing but want to get their music heard and out there, are maybe doing to it for a passion but with a dream to do it for a living) 


E List Bands:  Bands that are starting out or are doing it as a hobby (not fussed about being paid but just doing it for the sheer enjoyment with no goals to get signed, no real media attention and not very well known but would like to play live now and again) 


Policy for A List and B List Bands (sometimes C List):


With A List and B List signed bands and in some cases C list bands, we will pay the standard fee, ryders and whatever else is agreed on the contract.  

Most agencies send us the package of the tour dates or how much it would cost for the band for the live show and we either say yes or no.

In some cases if the turnout is low, we will offer free reviews, free interviews or pay later as long as it is agreed with the  band and both parties are happy.  However we do try and cover costs prior by doing a ticket policy.  

In any event of a band cancelling, we ask for a week in advance so we can get a replacement but we usually send agreements stating our terms. 



BAND POLICY:  D - E LIST BANDS


We do not believe in pay to play but we are realistic on what bands we decide to book for if a band cannot confirm three people to see you play then there is no point in booking you.  


That aside we want to encourage bands from out of town so we believe in order to create a successful event, we need a united effort so we can make sure our costs are covered.  


Our policy is if you are D List and E List and in some cases C List and are not so well known, if you can confirm a number of people agreed that will come to the gig that will be there to see you, then we will pay you that 100% profit. 

That way we know: 

1. You will have an audience for your set (as well as the audience we will bring through our promotion networks) 

2. The unsigned bands will get paid because we know those people are confirmed to cover their costs

3. Anything else left made on the door we can cover our outgoings such as signed band fees, sound engineer costs, event management fees, flyers, posters, advertising, for example.   

What happens is we ask the band to confirm a number of people (say 3-4 people depending on the event) and e-mail us the names. Once those people turn up, we cross those names of the list and then there is no risk involved for the promoter. It has been tried and tested and works.  This way the bands are happy because there are guaranteed folk coming to see them, promoter is happy because the bands are happy and the punters are happy to see the band they want to see and get to see other bands on the bill.  

In the past some unsigned bands are happy to play for free or some are happy with ryders (D List or E List).  We are happy to negotiate with every type of band.  Most of the time this happens if we get in a big headliner and they are just happy to play or they are not doing it for the money.  It's all down to the band.  Different contracts vary but we never do "buy ons" or "pay to play".
