Band Aide

A Band & Gig Survival Guide (Insights from Insiders)

by John B. Taylor,

This question-and-answer, no-holds-barred discussion of the intricacies of making a living as a professional musician gives frank advice regarding professional and personal aspects for a band's success and survival. An extensive range of industry topics are covered, including how to find and hire musicians, lay down gig and rehearsal rules, find booking agents, locate venues, put together press packs, write contracts, record a demo, self promote, and gain industry attention. Potentially taboo interpersonal issues are also addressed, such as how to fire someone, give criticism, and deal with clashing egos.
