IF YOU WANT TO PLAY AT THE MUSIC VILLAGE...
If you want to play at the Village, you will find here most of the info you need before sending us a project. Please read the following paragraphs carefully.
The Music Village is a private Jazz Club founded 14 years ago
and located at the very heart of Brussels. The Club offers some 100 seats. Though the Club offers the possibility of wining and dining, it is in the first place a concert hall and not “a restaurant with good music”... We guarantee the musicians (all true professionals) an attentive audience.The public is composed of both jazz connoisseurs and non-connoisseurs.The Music Village is happy to have brought back to Jazz music a large number of spectators who had been alienated from it by 2 frequently mentioned obstacles:
“jazz music is for connoisseurs only”
“jazz is free and incomprehensible”.
We expect musicians who wish to perform at the Club to respect this general concept and to choose the more accessible (to a large audience) songs from their repertoire,
without denying their art and creativity, obviously.
Besides Jazz music (mainly), the Village also schedules BLUES, LATIN MUSIC and CHANSON.

Please send your concert proposals (and – most importantly - some music samples in mail format) and all other communication ONLY and EXCLUSIVELY to the following e-mail address: email@example.com

PROGRAMMING rue des Pierres 50 1000 Brussels
Please NEVER send anything by REGISTERED POST.
I cannot answer to all the proposals, sorry…This Club is really a kind of ONE MAN SHOW…So you will be contacted by return IF and WHEN your proposal fits into my program. I thank you in advance for your understanding... (however, each season, we present some 75 new groups…)
Running a Club is very much like being a musician: it’s a tough job. So help us make it together.
