Ryan's Gig Guide is a free magazine aiming to support the live music scene in the West Midlands.
We're committed to helping the local independent music scene grow by getting more people into local gigs to see the potential hit performers of the future.
RGG is a small, independent operation but everyone here has a passion for music so this isn't just business - it's personal.
The majority of live music is put on by people who are in it for the love of music and it often runs at a loss and the team at RGG will do all we can, to help fill the many local venues we’re lucky to have.
RGG was founded in 1995 and provides gig listings, previews and reviews of bands from all over the region. when the previous team decided to call it a day, the current team of Dave Vale and Peter Williams took over.
Together with regular contributions from local musicians such as Nick J. Townsend of Weak13 and Adam Roberts of Labelled Dead, they have taken the magazine to new heights, gaining recognition as the "Best Mag/Vlog/Blog" in the 2019 Birmingham Music Awards.
