Hey Lover of the Tele: What do you all put into your media packs? Let me give you some background info: The scene: Small univeristy town (about 30,000, add another 30,000 students), and a very lively music scene. Lots of bars and performance spaces, and it seems like new acts are welcomed. No one (except for a very few) makes much $$, but if all you want to do is play, it seems like a welcoming atmosphere. My band: 4 of us, 3 teachers, and me, a grad student. We're not looking to make much $$, but we are all fairly serious amateurs. We've got about 2 hrs. of music, about 95% original. We play rock and roll, with a heavy country and blues accent. I guess that makes us Americana. We're looking to play out once a month or so, depending on schedules. Given all of this, how should I approach local venue owners? We have a demo cd with 6 songs, a facebook and myspace page. Should I just show up and drop off the cd? Call on the phone and give them our myspace page? Put together a fancier media kit with photo, set list, etc? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
