I am in a band and we have played a few small chairity gigs.
I was wondering how you got gigs when you were under the age of majority in your state/province/territory.

When I was a wee boy...

I either threw my own gigs, or did 'em at school, or at parties, or just like on the street somewhere.

What Mitchell said. If you can swing it, try to go in with 2 other underage bands and rent a small hall and put on an all ages show. If you do that, you can start building up a following, gaining experience and making contacts, all of which will really help you when you are old enough to start playing clubs.
