I've been booking my cover band for 18 years. About 13 years ago, we stopped playing bars. There was no money in it and the hours were horrible. We chose to concentrate on weddings, the corporate and private party world and concert in the parks. Those gigs are far more fun, there's more of them and they pay way more money! Enough money too make playing music a great paying part time gig doing what you love. I've turned it into a full time thing. For the past year or so, I've been thinking about teaching other musicians HOW to book these big $$$ gigs. The recent posts on how much bar bands are getting paid shocked the hell out of me. A live band is worth far more than $300 a night and we shouldn't settle for that! There's only one reason to put up with crappy paying bar gigs when you want better gigs: Not knowing HOW to do it! If that describes you, I've put together a free mini-course to help you get started. If you want to learn how to book better private party and corporate gigs, check it out here. I hope it helps!
