Well I’ve enjoyed making music for many years now but most of the time others have managed the bands I have been in. I have come to realize that in order to play my own original music, I am going to have to manage the band. This means being in charge of promotion, scheduling, booking, rehearsals, ect. What a huge task when all I’d really like to do is just play music. I have been procrastinating doing the management thing for years now and I am finally whole heartly plugging myself into management. I’m a successful organizer of many events but complete band management is new territory. I’m learning as I go along and would appreciate any advice. Tonight I plan on visiting some venues in Ventura and meeting the people who book the gigs. I’m just burning some cds and updating the band bio before I go out.
