Promote Your Gig

Do you want to promote your gig to a much wider jazz audience? A listing in our Jazz Gig Calendar will give your gig some exposure, but if you really want to build good audience numbers, then let us help you to promote it – at a realistic and very reasonable cost – via our mailing list and related social media feeds.

Our mailing list currently comprises 860+ jazz and music lovers in the Reading and Thames valley area. Each e-shot we send out is automatically posted to our Twitter feed and Facebook page, taking our promotional reach to reach to well over 1,800 jazz / music lovers in the Thames Valley area.

Each promotion takes the form of a e-shot to the mailing list, designed by us but using text and photos provided by you, like the following recent example: Equinox at the Four Horseshoes.

A one-off e-shot currently costs £30.00, which includes a free repeat. You’d need to provide some words describing the gig and the line-up, contact details, venue information and a photo or two – we’ll do the rest. The e-shot would ideally be sent out about a month before the gig, with the free repeat timed to go out about a week before.

If you want to sign up to a series of promotions, then we can do a reduced-price deal.

“Run by jazz fans for jazz fans, Jazz In Reading is a great service offering gig and event promotion. I use it to advertise my monthly Jazz Singers’ Night, amongst other gigs, and it really does help spread the word to jazz lovers around the county.” Fleur Stevenson
