Hi all,

well, I'm delighted a forum like this exists! And I actually found it while I was "browsing" for live opportunities for my band.

here is my question, and I hope I am not in the wrong place. How to get in touch (with a positive non-spamming attitude) with festivals and venues where progressive is fine? My band play a very happy/quirky form of rock n roll with a lot of elements of prog rock and everytime we go live it's always a party, especially for those ones there waiting for some progressive with an upbeat approach.

Any name? Any of you behind the scenes?

Fully open to suggestions!

ps. my band is the Happy Graveyard Orchestra...

I'm sorry no one has responded yet. I'll give you a hint: A lot of prog fans are an elitist and snoby bunch with no real intentions of helping or promoting new bands or actually embracing musical progression in the bands they like (most of them want their favorite bands to keep sounding and playing like they did back in the 70's). It's a sad state of affairs this prog movement nowadays. 

I would suggest you contact Greg Walker. He's a seller of metal and prog vinyls and cd's and is very well connected and he's a great guy. Look for his website Synphonic and shoot him an email. Other than that, just create an entry for your band here and your albums and write a first review so they appear on this website's radar. 

I'll add your albums to my Apple music collection and give them a spin for sure. Good luck man!
