GIGS Tab

GIGS
This list of gigs is based on my home scene, the Lehigh Valley PA, which includes Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, Nazareth, Northampton, Catasauqua, Coplay etc...

It also includes areas that are within a two-three hour radius of what I used to drive on a regular basis when I was a youngster. Hell, I even drove to DC to see shows.

EDITORIAL NOTE TO PROMOTERS AND BANDS
Philadelphia, NY, NJ bookings will NOT interfere with your attendance, in fact it might grow your audience. These 50-100 mile radius restrictions in contracts has always been detrimental to the Lehigh Valley scene. It used to take an hour to get to Philly, now it is more like 2-3 hours. Please book your bands in the Lehigh Valley AND Philly.
