Eclectric Promotions is owned and managed by Gareth Mitchell (me). I, and a few friends were responsible for the success of Oxjam Selby 2011. Riding on the rush that gave me, I have decided to take a step into the music industry as a promoter. My main aim in being a promoter is to improve and expose the music scene in Selby - to make people aware, to get your band out there, and to bring people together.
I promote fairly - everyone who wants a shot will get a shot.
I am always up for putting on charity events - if you know of a charity in need of help, get in touch.
I am not a stereotypical metal listener. I wear jeans, shirts, have only one tattoo, no piercings, and am a family man - BUT I do know good music when I hear it. I was raised on Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Scorpions, Queen, Rainbow, Deep Purple, Saxon, Def Leppard, Dio, Alice Cooper, Thin Lizzy, Thunder and eventually I ventured off to find my own taste in music (I tried Britpop, Punk, RnB, Trance, 90`s dance and everything in between: artists like Billy Joel, Guns n Roses, KISS, Michael Jackson, Roxette, P!nk, The Rolling Stones, Van Halen, ZZ Top, Dire Straits, Bruce Springsteen and even E17 and Shaggy) but always came back to metal and rock etc, and this has stayed with me since. That`s not to say I don`t like Britpop etc - some of it is OK, but I am and always will be largely influenced by 80`s and 90`s rock and metal, with the more recent discoveries of Butch Walker, Joe Bonamassa, Elvis Costello and Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and The Who. (These lists are nowhere near exhaustive - I could go on for a while).
If you want to book a gig with me please email or DM me. Please be sure to include all your details - name, location, previous venues played, stylings etc. Please remember that for the time being, all my gigs will be local to Selby - that being The Riverside bar on Ousegate. This venue is being booked up fast and months in advance so I may not be able to get you in with a couple of weeks notice (though I am sure there will be the odd emergency slot that opens up). On your contacting me, I will reply with availability for the dates you are available or wanting to book for, and from there we will discuss the finer points.
