Co-founder Dan Robertson explains, “No matter how good you are, the club you want to play at may not book you, that’s the harsh reality”. Giving artists hope for finding greater satisfaction and fulfillment from their creative work, Afton considers it a privilege to be able to offer their services to thousands of acts nationwide for free.
