Here it is, the first ever official update from Empty Chairs!

We have been up and running for just about a month and now have 127 accounts registered for brass bands in the UK and have had loads of positions advertised. If you have advertised a vacancy with us and have had success filling a seat please drop us a line to let us know!

Remember you can also add extra info like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and website details to you band profile. This will all appear on your vacancy listing.

In particular make sure you add the postcode of your bandroom to your profile. This will make a Google Map with a pin show to help those new players find you!

It's also possible to upgrade to a premium account to add even more info. The Pendeen Silver Band profile is an example of an enriched band profile.

These premium accounts cost £60 a year and not only allow you to enrich your profile, but also advertise for a Musical Director should the need arise and also publish press releases.

It's also a great way of thanking me!

What's Planned...

There are a few things planed in future developments including:

  • Incorporating Facebook Open Graph to improve the sharing.
  • Upload band logos.
  • Pull extra info into band profiles
  • Some small graphical tweaks

If you have any ideas for features or find any bugs please drop us a line.
