Bands, Bars, & Gigs was created to help keep band and venue brands, their identities, businesses, and passions relevant during these extraordinary challenging times. One of the most difficult things during the pandemic has been for bands and the establishments they play in local communities to stay top-of-mind. Venues count on live bands to draw patrons to drive business revenue, but now that struggle has become all too real.

Saxon Rock, LLC, a marketing consultancy that works with brands, agencies, and producers, conceived Bands, Bars, & Gigs as a result of working intimately in the band/venue ecosystem for many years.

David Fabel, the founder of Saxon Rock, is a lifelong drummer. This passion led him to being a founding member of The Influence, a popular classic rock cover band that has been playing venues across the New York tri-state area since 2009.
