Afton has been very helpful for me as an unsigned solo artist looking for shows to play. Thanks to them I have been booked for shows and played in front of audiences that otherwise would not have been available to me. That said, I have yet to see any of the promotion promised by Afton; even fans who asked to receive emails about my upcoming shows when buying tickets through Afton's website have not heard anything until I told them about the shows myself. However, besides that, playing the occasional Afton show and making $1 off of every ticket I sell is a significant improvement over the zero shows I would be playing without Afton.
