Rutland agency DG Music which has bands for hire opens new showroom in Oakham
A music agency is looking to boost the promotion of live events following the opening of a new showroom.
DG Music has moved to bigger premises in Oakham which will open up new opportunities for the growing business.
Having traded online for more than a decade, the company is adopting a new face-to-face approach for its local customers.
People looking to book live musicians for their events can now drop into the South Street office to chat about their bookings.
Director David Graham said: "Although we work online and there's a growing trend for businesses to run that way, we feel that putting real faces to the company name is important.
"We want to have a presence where people can come in and meet us in person."
As part of its future plans DG Music hopes to promote and provide a box office service for more live events. The showroom could also be used to record promotional videos and host other wedding suppliers.
David, a musician with Rutland band Funk Soul Brother, is hosting a launch event next week.
Visitors can drop into the showroom on Thursday, December 5 between 5pm and 7.30pm to find out more about the musicians on offer.
DG Music represents a number of artists exclusively through its Pure Artists website. They include Stamford harpist Eleanor Turner and rockabilly band The Houndogs.
The showroom is open on weekdays from 9am until 5pm.
