Freshly Ground Sounds has no audition process and a Facebook or Soundcloud page for your band is not a pre-requisite. It is open to everyone. If you have played a few songs in the comfort of your living room and want to try playing in public, sign-up. If you are a local band and want to practice gigging, sign-up. If you a session musician stuck in a hotel residency routine and want a platform to try out original work, sign-up. The variety is one of the great things about the Freshly stage. Still too nervous to sign-up? Come to one of our gigs and say hello.

 Want to play with us? Read this first.
