Paul CostleyEvery band deals with a booking agent at some point, and today that becomes true here at GigGab, too, as we welcome Paul Costley of Notso Costley Productions onto the show. Paul’s been playing in, managing, booking, and organizing bands since the 1970s, and has carved out a very successful booking business for himself in New England.

Yep, it’s a two-Pauls-and-one-Dave show as your two favorite weekend warriors listen to advice about working with a booking agent, managing relationships with various clubs, and what representation with a booking agent does – and doesn’t – bring you. Take a listen, then send in your questions to us at [email protected]. Enjoy!

A very interesting fact that a lot of us older musicians have to realize is that we have to change with the times. The question was brought up “How many 4pc classic rock bands can you book?”
These rooms are getting harder to find…Jaco once said” if you want to keep playing you better get hip with the times”
