GUS Band Unveils Latest Key Signing
The GUS Band has recently signed up with Andy Devereux of www.priorbooking.com, the on-line ticket booking platform bringing their ticket sales and promotions into the 21stcentury.
Andrew Rigby, the GUS Band’s Concert Secretary explains: “Traditional ways of selling tickets for our concerts have always been pretty stressful. Advertising and pre-sales are always difficult to manage and then, quite often, the band arrives at a concert not sure of how many people will turn up. Also, there’s the added issue of dealing with the cash generated on the door.
“By chance, after reading a thread on the 4barsrest Facebook page, I realised that ticket sales could be done quickly and easily on-line. By using www.priorbooking.com all the stress of pre-selling has disappeared, and the band can focus on what it does best, play fantastic music and entertain.”
Throughout 2019 the GUS Band are performing all over the midlands beginning with two concerts featuring music from the big screen. A Night at the Movies can be enjoyed at the Northampton International Academy (13thApril) and the Holy Trinity Church, Rothwell (4thof May).
The GUS Band will also be announcing details of two joint concerts being organised in support of the Alzheimer’s Society later in the spring.
Andy Devereux added: “Prior Booking is absolutely delighted to be partnering with the world-famous GUS Band as their ticketing provider. Founded and run by bandsmen, our aim has always been to help brass bands to increase their audience. We worked with the band to ensure that they made full use of the system to deliver specific ticket requirements for some of their educational events and we look forward to seeing many new people sitting in the audiences at future GUS concerts.”
