The Wedgewood Rooms has run showcases for bands local to the Portsmouth and surrounding area for two decades, providing a valuable resource for the music scene and offering bands experience playing in a professional environment at a nationally recognised venue.
All bands are paid and any band or solo artist of any age or genre is welcome to contact us for a show. There is a competition element to it as music industry judges provide feedback for artists and their (and the crowd's) favourites' go on to play further shows, with the overall favourite receiving a band start-up pack.
Five new bands in every heat, Showcase 2014 promises to be our biggest and most exciting summer showcase to date!
If you're interested in taking part simply contact us on showcase@wedgewood-rooms.co.uk with a description of your band, links to website, MySpace or Soundcloud etc, and contact details including phone number. PLEASE DO NOT SEND MP3s .

You can also keep up to date on Twitter and Facebook.
