ooo i wrote 1 tell me what you think

We are a young original 5 piece from Swindon, not really sticking to a particular style but are lately influenced a lot by reggae and ska. We've been playing together now for nearly 2 years, we have 1 cd and we're off to record another in the Christmas holidays. We've played many gigs all over Swindon our favourite gig was Swindon Youth festival where we got such an amazing response, it was lovely weather too.
Peace

ooo i wrote 1 tell me what you think

(Band name here) (is/are, depending on whether you're a "the" band or not) a young original 5 piece from Swindon, they prefer no to stick to a particular style, but have lately been influenced by a myriad of reggae and ska. They have been playing together for nearly 2 years, and have 1 cd. They will be off to the studio to record another album during the Christmas holidays. They have played many gigs all over Swindon, a favourite gig spot being Swindon Youth festival where there was an absolutely amazing response. The weather was very nice as well.

fix'd :thumb: lemme know whatcha think.

NOTES:

edit: i just noticed i used "they" way too much. just take a few of those out and put in your band name every once in a while.

and is
"Peace
Pandas xxx"

part of the Bio too?

yeah, since you're writing for a publication, i formalized the hell out of it. it needs to sound like you're a reporter talking about the band, unless the theme of the article is "hey, here's what this guy has to say about his band!"

hope i helped :chug:

edit 2: i know you said you don't want to stick to a particular style, but it would be really helpful to the readers/potential fans to know vaguely what kind of music you are. i mean, you don't want a metalhead coming to one of your shows, hating it because you're not metal, and creating a bad image for your band, all because he didn't know what kind of music you play, amirite?

okay, i think i'm done now. post your next revision if you want more help. ;)

We are an original 5 piece band from Swindon who are influenced a lot by reggae and ska. We've been playing together now for nearly 2 years, have 1 album released and are set to record another over the Christmas holidays. We've played many gigs all over Swindon but our best gig was The Swindon Youth festival, where we got an amazing response.
There's what you should say.
