The Benefits of Playing Music at Charity Events

If we are blessed to have it all, then I believe that we should try and help those of us that are not as fortunate. There are many ways that we can do this such as through donations, providing homes for the homeless, helping them seek get medical attention when they cannot afford it. There are very many ways that we can assist at these charity events, but today, we would like to focus on the benefits of playing music at charity events. We will also take a look at some of the instruments that can be played and where they can be bought when one is in Adelaide.

Future Gigs

Charity events usually pull a huge crowd of attendance and if you would like to sell your services and become known, this would be one of the best platforms to perform. These events attract all sorts of people, including professionals, record company executives, event planners, venue owners, and who knows, you just might get the next gig or contract without even expecting it.

Fans

You might not know where the next gig will come from, but with a good performance, one is sure to leave the event with a good number of new fans. This means that the fans will spread the word about you, and in no time, you’ll have an even greater following. This can be the best marketing ever. Let them know your social media handles where they can find out more information on your upcoming events. This isn’t too much to ask for if you perform at a non-paying charity gig.

Press

Charity events almost always have some sort of media coverage, whether it is a local magazine, radio or TV station, or a newspaper. This is going to be the best opportunity for you to get free publicity, and the audience will know that not only did you perform at the event, but you also donated your services. If you get contacted by someone hosting a charity event and they don’t plan on having any media there, it is ok, as long as you get their permission, to contact the local newspaper to cover the event. Not only would this guarantee your name in the paper but the host would most likely appreciate the assistance.

Do the Right Thing

Like I said in the beginning, if you were blessed to be where you are, it is only right to give back to the community for the sake of it. We all have known someone that has been affected by disease or tragedy. It’s only right to use your talents to give back to the less fortunate and to help the local community. You got into music because you love to play, so why not just go out and do what you love!

Those are just some of the reasons why playing can be of benefit at charity events. Now we are going to look at some of the instruments that you can play, focusing on ESP Ltd guitars.
