What We’re About

‘Pierless Music’ was formed in September 2012 by Andy Gunton and Richard Lock.

Our aim is to promote, support and nurture original local music and musicians from Hastings and the surrounding area*. That means those that live, or are based, in the Hastings area.

We feel, very passionately, that the quality of the original music that comes from this area, across all age groups and musical genre’s, is such that it deserves to be heard by a much wider audience.
Is there anywhere else quite like Hastings? Well, we certainly don’t think so and that’s why we’re here.

But, we need your support to help us achieve our goals.
If you are in a local band, or produce original music of your own, we want to hear from you.
If you are putting on gigs, or events that include original music. we want to hear from you.
If you write/blog about, or want to write/blog about original local music, we want to hear from you.
If you take good quality photo’s, or video footage of local acts, we want to hear from you.

Also, if you have any news, views or information about something that you feel we should be covering here, please let us know.

Together, we can help original local music get the attention it richly deserves.

‘Pierless Music’ have many ideas and future plans. We just hope that at least some of them come to fruition.

Stay tuned to find out more.

Please remember that ‘Pierless Music’ is interested in original local music only.
We have the utmost respect for those who play cover versions and they certainly have their place locally. But, unfortunately this isn’t it.

Pierless Music does not act as a Promoter for gigs in the Hastings area, we just help publicise the actual gigs. Therefore we are unable to book gigs for you. If you’d like to book a gig in our area, we suggest that you contact one of the venues that we list in our Gig Guide. We cannot do that on your behalf.

* For our definition of “Hastings and the surrounding area”, just think of the approximate traditional 1066 area, ie: Rye to Pevensey and Hastings to Robertsbridge. But, the nearer to Hastings itself, the better.
