The answer to that question depends on your needs. If you want to give your Band or Venue maximum exposure then you should join gigall. Gigall is one of the only band websites in the UK that is NOT protective about your email address and other contact details. I other words Gigall does not horde it's data and actively encourages other websites to use scrape our data.
So...Why is that important?
We allow other band websites and link directories to scan gigall. The more times that your name is duplicated in other websites the more exposure you will recieve. Some websites will not show any band or venue contact details. Instead they provide a form which you have to use to contact a band. For every band you want to contact you need to fill out a form! What is the point in that? If I was searching for a band I would want to collect all the email address and then contact them all at the same time.
Do This Simple Test
Gigall was created because we want to hear live music and we want to know where GIGS are being performed by PUB BANDS. Do yourselves a favour and place these 3 words GIGS PUB BANDS (or any two of them for that matter) into any search engine and see where gigall is placed within the search results.

Gigall has stored address details of thousands of Venues where bands have performed during the past and in the future. As a registered band you can access this data and have it sent to you via email
The vast majority of Venues (especially Pubs) do not have websites
Usually their only exposure on the internet is via serach directories or Facebook.
These directories do not give venues the flexibility to update their pages on a regular basis.
Facebook groups are updated so quickly that your advert is several pages down and will never be seen at the right time.
