Current available opportunities at MYNEWJUKEBOX

Are you a bit of a wordsmith, and always looking up new bands?

Do you shiver when festival line-ups are announced, stay up all night to get those gig tickets before they sell out and do a little dance at news of a tour of one of your favourite bands?

Do you want to get your writing seen without fitting into a mould?

Do you want experience for a portfolio, and to rant (within reason) about the state of the music industry in its many forms?

As many free gigs, parties, festivals and events as you and your keyboard can handle?

To interview both up-and-coming and established acts?

And to top it off, to hear all the new releases before they hit the shelves?
