The festival needs to be shouted from the rooftops and this team sure know how to do that! Our PR team at Beat The Drum Promotions work tirelessly creating visual content for our media pages, liaising with bands and vendors alike…another jigsaw piece
“We are Beat The Drum Promotions, a husband and wife team who specialise in the Management of Social Media, Live Music Management and Promo , Live Music Event Management and Promo. As a team we have a wealth of knowledge, experience and connections in all the above along with strong links with local Radio here in Ashford.
We currently manage the music and promotional material, for a venue which provides live music amongst other events, managing of all their social media platforms and their website. Allowing us to free up the owners time to focus on the running of their busy venue, and not constantly spending time creating visual content for promoting their events. We have been involved with Ashford Festival in The Park which is now in its 15th year, for the last few years seeing its attendance growing, though the promotion and social media work we do for it. This year we were also involved with artist selection for the event. Samantha also is part of the Create festival team this year, compering the main stage and also was part of the the selection process with her Radio Ashford colleague Phill Thorne
Music is a HUGE passion of ours, Jay has played in bands for the last 30 years and currently drums with the UK’s number 1 Status Quo tribute band The Quo Experience, of whom Samantha manages also. As a team we create a local gig guide every week, which on average gets seen by over 2500 people and also have arranged live music for local events and created visual promotion for EP launches, charity single production and charity events. With experience in the direction/promotion of music videos, poster design, promotional video creation, media coverage and music from behind the scenes and in front of a crowd…we really do know our stuff
