The Real Music Club provides a range of touring support services including, tour management, driving, arranging travel & accommodation, compiling itineraries etc.
We will work with an artist to provide a service that meets the budget.
We own our own Mercedes Benz Viano (pictured) and can also arrange other suitable rentals as required. The vehicle is a 7 seater but all or some of the rear seats can be removed. It is large enough to carry 5 people & a full backline. It is a car and not a van conversion so it is comfortable and comes equipped with DVD player, multiple charging points, A/C and a fridge. We also have a quality Sat Nav (GPS to our American friends) which we regularly do map updates on so to ensure we don't get you lost!
While we are based in Ireland, these services are not exclusive to this island. We can travel and have operated on tours throughout Europe & in North America.
Recent touring work has included tour managing Willie Niles's 2013 European tour. This was a two band tour with Nashville based Jefferson Grizzard & his band opening the shows. We used two vehicles on the tour and as can be seen from the picture on this page we also used a trailer to carry the backline.
In May 2013 we booked and tour managed an eight date Irish tour with Mary Gauthier and in July we tour managed Tom Russell on an Irish & UK tour.
We also coordinate all the live work for Belfast based band Girls Names. Throughout 2013 we have toured extensively with the band, covering 16 different countries and performing at 20 festivals.
In the past we have acted as merchandising rep on Snoop Dogg's summer European tour, tour managed Belfast band LaFaro on a five week European tour, tour managed Austin singer songwriter Sam Baker on an Irish tour & driving The Lighthouse Family on a promotional tour of radio stations in Belfast & Dublin.
