URL: Website
Info:Being musicians and sound engineers here at Muted productions we noticed that there are masses of extremely talented acoustic musicians in leeds, whose numbers are ever expanding because of the Universities and the popularity of acoustic music increasing. However, there is definitely, compared to the number of musicians, a lack of places offering these sort of shows!
Our goal is to provide a platform for brilliant musicians to showcase their talent!
Combining a decent sound engineer, high quality equipment and vetted musicians will create an atmosphere, that brings punters and artists back time and time again!
From April when the business started we have increased the number of venues we work with from 1 night every other week to running live music nights across 10 different venues 6 nights a week! A couple of the venues we work with on a weekly basis include Hirsts Yard, just off Call Lane, The 212 Cafe and Bar on Brewery Wharf and The Box in Headingley.
