Brugal Rum bring you a refreshing alternative to every day busking in Brighton & Hove. This fantastic new venture has seen many musicians sign up to play impromptu sets at 15 venues across the city who are a part of the ‘Busk Stop’ initiative.
Musicians can register for free with Busk Stop by supplying details of their act and Myspace account and/or web site for consideration. Members will then be able to busk in the designated Busk Stop pubs at any time of day. Just with normal busking, any money collected by the musicians performing will be theirs to keep, with no limit on the amount of performances per day.
The aim of the project is not only to support upcoming musical talent but also to provide customers with a more varied and exciting visit to their local public house; which will also include some tantalising Brugal cocktails and drinks offers throughout the Busk Stop network. Every busker will be entitled to a free Brugal and Coke when they play, whilst customers will be able to buy them for just £2 during a performance.
All of the participating venues have been chosen specifically because live performances will compliment the atmosphere of each of them, while all Busk Stop musicians will be carefully selected by experienced local music promoter and ex-Freebutt operator Andy Rossiter.
Andy’s years of booking experience at The Freebutt have been to put to good use with the Busk Stop scheme. “We’ve got a number of musicians on board so far, but we would love more, so please get in touch. I’m really excited to see this project develop and see Brighton’s pub and music scene become even more interesting than it already is, with musicians being free to play to an audience whenever they feel the urge and customers of the pubs experiencing some of Brighton’s talent in an informal atmosphere.”
