Get Paid Higher Fees

How to Book Gigs and Tour Profitably

Get paid higher gig fees by building your value in each market.   But, how do you build your value?    One way is to track every gig you play in and around each market. Track your audience numbers, your merchandise sales, the percentage of seats sold in relation to the size of the venue, the weather on the day of your gig, whether any other events might have presented a conflict for your audience and what sort of media coverage you got.   Now when you have hard, cold facts like numbers, you are better able to negotiate the next gig by leveraging the facts to increase your guarantee…

How Many Gigs Do You Really Need

How Many Gigs Do Your Really Need? Did you ever consider exactly how many gigs you really need? I ask my artist clients this all-important question and wow it is an eye-opener!

I’ve devised a simple exercise that can help put you on track to booking and playing the exact right number of gigs for your situation. When you do this exercise, you can watch stress and overwhelm just slip away and experience confidence and feel motivated to book…

And, if you need to fill a fast date with little or no lead time to round out a tour or just put something on the calendar for an off time, you don’t want to be phoning up venues who you know are probably already booked. So frustrating and such…
