What happens when a new manager takes over at a club where you’ve already got dates booked? Your answer to this question will undoubtedly impact your band’s future bookings. The good news is that you are in control. Listen to advice from Paul and Dave as they share experiences and tips with you!
If at first you don’t succeed, it’s worth asking, “did I believe?”
Well, did you? Gig Gab might help. First, Paul and Dave talk through some of their gigs, both recently and upcoming, as they’re both doing some different stuff that detours from the norm (is there really a norm, outside of Cheers?). Ever have to do a gig without your keyboard player? Your two favorite weekend warriors have, and they talk about what that means for their respective bands.
Then it’s on to taking a step back and thinking about what your bands mean, and to whom. And once you sort that latter part out, well, then you’re ready to start building events for the people that care about you and your bands.
From there it’s a short leap to negotiation. After all, we must believe first before we can discuss that, right?
What happens when your bandmate can’t make the gig? What happens when you can’t make the gig?
More to the point: what happens when listener Patrick asks Paul to reconcile the fact that he despises subs with the fact that Paul now plays in multiple bands?
What happens is that Dave and Paul talk it through! It would’ve been even funnier if we had a different host step in and sub for one of your favorite weekend warriors, but we didn’t think about that in time, so… you get Paul and Dave this week, just like usual.
