More Sage Advice from Andy Gilbert | To qualify in the original band category, name value is really important. When asked about using social media to enhance name value Andy suggested to downshift the daily stuff and focus on bigger news like gig announcements and new songs. Where Andy listens to original band music? Reverbnation, Soundcloud and CD Baby.
Thank you Andy Gilbert for the phone interview on booking. Andy books mostly cover and tribute bands but he watches for original bands also. The Portland Concerts in the Park has been getting original bands from him, for example. (https://www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/69555)
The theme for June is Booking. We're going to interview bookers and find out more about how to book shows. Many young musicians have been asking us to share tips, so this month will be dedicated to some advice from professionals.
