Resin Events was set up by Sime, founder member of grunge/metal band Resin at the end of 2013. After playing hundreds of gigs around the UK, knowing what it’s like as a band, how hard it is to get gigs out of town if you’re “unknown” and how much it costs to play them once you get them a decision was made to start something new.
The format is simple: pick some of the best bands we have had the pleasure of sharing a stage with or or have seen on our travels and bring them to one of Leicester’s finest live venues, The FIREBUG. Now here’s the rub… actually give bands some money for doing it! Every gig has a local band or two and an out of town band or two. Get to play a brilliant venue with an experienced and pro sound engineer, reasonable door charge to go towards the bands and most importantly NO COMPROMISE on the quality of the lineup!
There are some great nights ahead spread over the year and a selection of media sponsors getting on board and me passionately behind it all to try and build the city’s live music scene one gig at a time.
