"Calling all club concert booking Secretaries
How sad it is to hear of clubs having to close either because of lack of attendees, a general lack of enthusiasm or in many cases just because there are no members that will take some responsibility from retiring committee members. As we well know at our club, 'you only get out what you put in' but that's another whole story!
This month we had an excellent concert from an artiste who is apparently making 2015 his last year on the circuit due to a lack of concert bookings. If you scan through the directory at Organfax there are still many healthy thriving clubs, so my question is why have some of these clubs not booked this particular artiste? It is the third visit he has made to our club and every time has given us a refreshing, enjoyable concert with an excellent musical mix, superbly played. The bonus is that he also plays for an acceptable fee. What are you waiting for, please get on the telephone to Michael McAneny and give your members' an opportunity to enjoy this talented artiste.
We would also like to hear from other clubs who have recommendations for artistes they think have done a good job. Have your say on our forum pages or send us an email with your thoughts!
