How to use your Jamma profile in Facebook groups to find even more gigs and opportunities.

I bet you’re thinking, why are Jamma Music telling me to find gigs and opportunities via Facebook? Well, as you know,  we’re Jamma, the pro-artist platform. Although we have many gigs available and great exposure opportunities here on our platform, we also want to make you aware of the opportunities available to you to make sure you get the most out of your career in the music industry. 

These groups are filled with an inspiring network of individuals with one goal; keeping music alive. Although each group has their own set of rules, there are definitely great ways to get yourself heard and seen using your profile on our platform - think of it almost like your CV for gigs.

Here’s a list of Facebook groups we recommend you as a musician joining if you haven’t already:

🎸 Dep Musicians in London- 21.8K Members

This group is for anyone looking for musicians or bands: anything related to music jobs, musicians, bands needed or deps are allowed.

Self promotion is not allowed in this group as all other posts like spam/advertising will be deleted to keep this group clean and beneficial to musicians and bands. So if you’re somebody that isn’t a massive fan of marketing, this might just be for you.

🎸 England is Alive With Music - 20.2K Members

Feel alive as you unite with 20.2K members - all of which love the music industry.

ENGLAND IS ALIVE WITH MUSIC (EIAWM) is a group for self-promotion by England based unsigned talent (musicians and singers). Musicians not based in England can join the group but cannot use EIAWM to promote anything other than gigs/tours in England.

Promoters from outside England (e.g. Festival organisers), who wish to generate interest from musicians and singers to participate in events outside England may advertise with full information on how musicians and singers can apply to feature in their events.
