If you're in a covers band and you're vying for work to local venues, clubs, festivals and private clients, your ability to achieve good quality and plentiful work will only be as good as your online promotional media.

As a part time music agent, it's incredible how many acts send promotional packs containing poor quality clips of performances filmed on iPhones and handi cameras pointing at the stage, often with the obligatory punter walking past or standing in front of the camera. In short, they don't look professional and definitely don't present a professional image of the band or act.

Similarly and on the other end of the scale, I'm sent videos filmed in an MTV style and often performed to playback - 'mimed'. While these look cool, they don't really give an accurate representation of what the band is like in the live environment that clients are going to be hiring you for and the handi-cam footage just makes the band look and sound average.

Marketing is vital to a successful business and, combined with the Web presence, the band's demo is it's most powerful part of their advertising and marketing. The band's professionalism will be instantly judged on the quality of the media they deliver.

White Room Recording Studio provides packages that provide acts with everything they need to present themselves as a professional entity in a highly competitive industry. Not everyone is blessed with a ability to use music, graphics or video software so let us take the burden from you at a very sympathetic price.

We can capture the band either at a live show or in the confines of a large, professional looking, space. This can be decided and discussed at your pre-production meeting.





Standard Professional Band Showreel
(And Sound Engineer at live shows)


Recording a showreel doesn't have to be hard, annoying or expensive. Hiring studios and videographers to record your demo can be needlessly expensive. White Room studio can record you at one of your live gigs, in a music venue, in a hall or at any location appropriate to the vision of the band's marketing. Most importantly, your performance will be live. We'll mix the audio to studio quality and combine the audio with some multi-angle camera footage, pick up shots and video effects to give you a professional looking and sounding demo that actually shows the band as the client needs to see/hear it, without spending the Earth.

• Free pre-production consultation given to the band from the perspective of an entertainment agent / client.

• We'll engineer your live show using your own PA plus our 24bit/48k Recording Interface / Live Mixer to capture multi track recording.

• Filmed in 1080p HD using multiple Canon DSLR cameras providing multiple angles to the band.

• The band is encouraged to add in their own cell phone footage to the mix for some additional and artistic angles.

• Live sound to include Reverb, Delay, Compression and multi-band EQ for a truly polished live sound but doesn't affect the recorded multi-tracks.

• Shure Radio mic also available for vocalists.

• 32-bit / 48Khz recording

• All instruments mic'd or DI'd into the PA along with vocals and keyboards. Up to 18 inputs available, which is more than enough for a 5pc band in a live setting.

• Package includes up to 6 of the best songs mixed and produced into a 10 min promotional video (agents and clients rarely need or watch any more than that).

• Graphics including Band Logos

• Typical turn around in 7 - 10 working days (subject to other work following the booked date.)

• Audio mixed with industry standard EQs, compressors, reverbs and delays.

• Get that expensive "SSL" or "Neve" sound in our Virtual Studios - created with our unique knowledge of software and signal flow.

• Just £399 for up to 6 songs mixed with video and PA/engineer for the night, provided in both branded and unbranded YouTube friendly formats

• Fee payable by Paypal / Credit Card / Bank transfer.
All fees must be up to one week paid in advance.
