How to Book a Gig For Yourself

In this post I’m going to outline a step-by-step guide showing you how to book a gig for yourself or your band. Even if you’re an unsigned or independent artist, the truth is that you don’t always need a booking agent, or even a concert promoter, to land gigs at venues in your area. I'm going to show you how to go directly to these venues yourself and get them to book you.

Musicians: This is the right way to move to a new city

If you’re a musician, moving to a new city is tough. Assuming you want to actually land some gigs in your new city, you’ll need to get to know the musicians around there. While it can take years to really break into the scene, you can give yourself a huge head start by planning the move properly and doing some legwork ahead of time. A few months ago a horn player emailed me about moving to Philly and did everything exactly right. In fact, within a few days of being in Philadelphia, he landed his first gig as a result of his efforts. In this post, I’m going to show you the email and break down what exactly made his approach successful.
