London is one of the most exciting cities on earth with a wealth of entertainment on offer every single night of the week. Live Music Management are very lucky to have had a small part in the cultural life of London in that LMM have been instrumental in booking live bands in London into some of the Capitols most prestigious venues over the past fifteen years. We also book London DJs for events and venues both large and small throughout London. On todays blog we outline some of our favourite venues to catch live bands in London.
Camden’s iconic Dingwalls is a venue very dear to Live Music Management’s heart. Not only has it hosted shows for up and coming bands for over thirty years but it was also the home of LMM team member DJ Big Als sunday residency for a number of years. Dingwalls has held shows for The Foo Fighters, Mumford and Sons, Pink , The Strokes , Coldplay and Noel Gallagher amongst others in the past five years or so. It’s a venue that has become a rock n roll institution . There are great bands playing at Dingwalls all the time. Many of them are just on the verge of breaking big, some of them are already huge!
Walkabout Shepherds Bush
A great place to see a visiting Australasian band or to see one of Londons party bands doing their stuff.
If you get the chance to see a band in this brilliant gem of a venue then do take it. Union Chapel holds occasional bookings for acoustic acts and is one of our favourite intimate spaces in the Capitol.
Guanabara is a great place to catch one of Londons top funk bands . Its a large Brazilian thmed club that has fantastic live music throughout the week with the emphasis on cool and trendy London soul bands
If you are looking for a great venue that has some live music on a Saturday night then it’s worth checking out Temple Walkabout as the place to see London party duos playing their sets .
The Roadhouse in Covent Garden is a fantastic place to see a Rockaoke Band (and maybe even join in with the Live Band Karaoke) The Roadhouse runs the best in London function bands on most nights of the week.
Fantastic venue in Angel which holds small scale shows for all kinds of bands but in particular alt country and indie acts. LMM love this venue.
The Hootananny Brixton
A great live venue in Brixton which is a new discovery for the Live Music Management gang. The Hootananny Brixton holds a number of world music events and is a great venue to catch something new and original .
London is a great city for Live Music and above are several venues to see Live Music of all descriptions. Its gotta be better than sitting in the house!!
