I'm currently seriously planning setting up a promotions company for local talent in Cardiff and the South Wales area. Only problem really is what I'm going to call the thing. If anyone's got any bright ideas, feel free to post em and I'll consider em.

Ok here are a few of my suggestions.

'From Porn till Busk'

'Talented? Welsh?'

'Are you local?'

'Smoke Me A Kipper'

'Will work for food'

Add productions or limited or whatever and Robert is your Mothers brother.

"Cheeky Monkey Promotions"

"Chunky Monkey Promotions"

"Premium Local Omnipresent Promotions (PLOP)"

"Up-Stage Promotions"

"In the Pipe Promotions"

Don't use:

"Wheelarch Lawnmower"

"Jimmy Somerville's Merkin Blast"

"Dog Pound Shit Scraper"

"Hmmm I like it. Like it Good"

"The Cat's Nipples" (actually, I kind of like that) (the name, not cat's nipples)

Heh, funny ideas.

But in all seriousness, use your name. If you flick through the pages of Contacts you'll see loads of those sorts of agencies give themselves zany or puntastic names, which I always thought would make it hard to take them seriously. Personally, I think putting your name to a company gives it more credibility and a more professional appearance.

Ms Dixit has a point but to a point. The point of a company name is not just to be professional but also memorable. In addition, although putting my name to the company would be fun, my partner in this endeavour may object. Keep em coming, more the merrier. A little reality probably wouldn't hurt mind, although Chunky Monkey Productions does have a ring to it, cheers mrjester.

Believe me, all of your suggestions are appreciated.

In that case something professional yet not stupid-sounding. These people are trusting you with their careers.

That's the one Jordie, tell them that. Then every pisshead, junkie, model wannabe and bozo that come your way will have you to blame because their career didn't take off.

But on a serious note, what type of promotions are we talking here. A gig down the town hall, having a network of music pub managers who you can move your clients aournd in, a battle of the bands at Carling academy? A pile of people that will give out flyers for pubs and clubs?

Who is your market and what is your angle?

Why would I choose you above someone else (forgetting about the name thing).

Once you have a developed brief as to who you are then serious talk about how you present yourself to all of you contacts because more plausible. If you start with a name then you have to fit yourself around that.

Which was the point we were both trying to make methinks. No worries

It's a live promotions company. I'm planning to organise and market gigs around Cardiff for local bands and DJs. Headlining with bands that have established fan bases of course but also supporting them with lesser known talent. And as for being responsible for their careers, that's a management job not a promotions one. If they get the gigs, they get paid, the only one making a loss in any case will be me. Why choose me? What have you got to lose? Oh and believe me, I've got venues lined up and some interested bands, just sorting out the smaller details at this time.

No promotions from me, I think it sounds cheap - Just a personal option mind.

I don't think that has a marketing ring to it...

Anything ever come of this?

Just that I read you had a gig with your band and cannot make Brighton.
