Where should I send your email course?
The struggle is real when it comes to booking your band
Venues and talent buyers are blasted with emails, Facebook messages, texts, and DM’s from unprofessional artists on a daily basis trying to get their foot in the door. On top of that, amateur artists who don't know how to promote themselves and sell tickets make it harder on those that do.
How are you supposed to cut through the noise, attract the right promoters, and position yourself as someone who should be taken seriously?
Here’s what you’ll learn
The music industry has changed, but they don’t want you to know that. I've been booking shows and tours for my own band for over 15 years, so I know firsthand what it takes to get noticed so you can get more gigs. I’ve helped hundreds of musicians thrive in this new landscape, and I can help you, too. Here’s what we’ll cover together:
The first thing you need to take care of before you start playing live
How to create a KILLER EPK that gets noticed and promoters can’t say “no” to
The art of pitching venues and talent buyers the right way and building instant credibility with your band and music
How to increase your guarantees and issue contracts for yourself so you stop getting screwed over by shady promoters
Promote and advance your shows like a pro, sell more tickets and get on the venues good side
Get paid! Plus, the things you aren’t doing after your shows that NEED to happen
It's easy to start booking more shows for your band
