Audience numbers have dramatically decreased over the years - is there a solution to attracting audiences back to these concerts? Based in the north west we have a plethora of quality band clubs at our disposal which are not being filled on a sunday night (delph,boarshurst,dobcross,glosso to name but a few. This is fairly cheap entertainment for a live concert and surely there must be a way to increase audience numbers. The band clubs are not putting on the quality of bands that we saw in years gone by and this is the common complaint I hear from many banders. The clubs say they can't afford it but if they put good bands on the audiences will follow! I know this from experience-we did a one off concert with IP brass last year and easily filled one band club. Any thoughts?
