What does the site do?

Many things, including:

Your profile

When you register, you get a personal profile page with your details on it. This is searchable (unless you are an Individual) using the "Bands", "Venues", "Promoters" and "Resources" links on the left menu. Your profile has a friendly address like www.cambridgebands.com/me. You have an individual RSS feed so that you can share data with whoever wants it. Your profile has your gig dates, and details of any posts you've made.

Gig Calendar

All gigs added by users go onto our calendar which provides a friendly way of searching for gigs to go to. We can import your venue's RSS feed to add your gigs automatically.


Any registered user can make posts (or comment on others posts) to one of our three messageboards: "News", "Join a band" and "Book a band". Networking musicians is important to us and you...

How do I sign up?

If you have registered with CambridgeBands.com before, your account will still exist, though if you've not logged in in a while your account may have been deactivated, which means that you no longer appear in searches, but you can still log in. You can log in with a username or email address. If you forget your password you can have a new one sent to your email address.

If you do not have an account, registration is free, and the process depends on the type of account you select. Individual registration is very simple, others are more detailed. On any page click on the "Register" link from the menu to begin registration.
