MUSIC PROMOTIONS - KARINA SHER
(MANAGING DIRECTOR AND OWNER OF RAGEBREED)
Starting out as a hobby, the project grew. Her aim was include fans of the music to assist with the progression of these artists that were overlooked by some promoters because they didn't have the exposure to be booked so with the help of a voluntary street team, they were able to put these shows on and promote through their original methods.
They did this via The Shed via a monthly event called AGGRESSION DOWNLOAD. In the process she provided free training for staff and rewarded them in ryders and a place to stay. They did not make enough for these shows to warrant big wages as it was only one monthly event and the staff were discounted on top of which half the profit on the door went to the venue. They just about covered costs. At this point in time, Ragebreed was operating out of passion and strong friendships helping the underground scene grow. She trained the more ambitious types and hopefully was looking to grow and expand the company.
Karina then decided to assist other venues also and also started up a night called THE WOLF'S LAIR which was in association with RETRIBUTION.
Then she was invited to host TERRORIZER MAGAZINE'S project called TERRORIZER GRINDHOUSE which Karina held at The Shed and later the FIREBUG in Leicester
Karina then ventured into more events such as RAGEFEST, BRUTAL FEST AND SHADOW FEST UK among others and eventually set up a monthly club night called RAGEBREED CLUB NIGHT at Venom Nightclub but then decided to end in December 2015 at Venom Nightclub.
Karina and James Russell ended up interviewing legends VENOM INC the founding members of Venom at their show in London. On top of which, herself and Danny Sanderson have been reviewing different bands to encourage promotion of underground and live music. To view the site please click here.
