9Bach at Mundial Montreal

9Bach were awarded funding to enable them to travel to showcase at Mundial Montreal in November 2016. This was an opportunity for them to perform in front of and meet with key music industry contacts. This enabled them to develop a strategy to raise the band’s profile in North America through performing live, increased radio play, and press coverage.

The band saw results from their showcase straight away:

"As a result of this project we have already gained an agent who will work for us securing live performances in Europe and Asia. We have also met with key venue and festival bookers, who saw our showcase, and our North American agent has started following these up to secure live performances. We hope to perform at other festivals and venues in Canada and the USA".

To conclude:

"We received very positive feedback following our showcase performance, and feel there is an appetite for 9Bach shows in North America, and especially Canada. Although meeting delegates was key, the most enjoyable aspect of the project was the 9Bach showcase performance, and being able to give the delegates a taste of our sound,and what we are about. From our point of view Mundial Montreal seemed to have a good ratio of bookers to bands. We also really appreciated that there were never more than one band on at any one time, so all the delegates had the opportunity to hear our showcase without any clashes with other bands".
