Made with Music Mini-Gig Open Call

Made with Music is a Leeds based charity. We run three Mini-Gigs a year at the Brudenell Social Club on Sunday afternoons. The gigs are designed to be fully accessible to families with a disabled family member and are aimed at young families, with short sets (25 minutes), lower than usual sound levels (no or minimal drums), raised lighting levels, craft activities and face painting. We won an award for Access to Live Music from the charity Attitude is Everything for the mini-gigs last year.

We're looking for musicians (paid) to be involved in the next six gigs which have been funded by Arts Council England. We work with three acts per gig, in any genre that can meet our low sound level requirements and we mix up genres for each gig. It's likely to be at least half of the audience's first gig experience, so we want to make it a good one! We want to work with artists local to Leeds who are happy to chat to and perform for a family audience.

You can find out more about our work and the mini-gigs here on our website.

This is what the artists said about performing at our last gig on 26th January:
