Paul put on his acoustic Springsteen tribute show and has many lessons to share from that, including the benefits having an instrument tech on stage to help you. Marketing the event, too, brought more than a few insights, including what you unintentionally wind up doing to market the next event. Dave had an interesting fly-on-the-wall experience with an audition this week that really drove home some important lessons… and your two favorite weekend warriors begin discussing the unspoken language of rock-and-roll. All this and more in this week’s GigGab. Press play, and enjoy!
