Keeping it Fresh – Gig Gab 233

What do you do to keep things fresh for your band and your audience? What more could you do?

As much as we love the music, it’s not just about the music. There’s more we can all do – especially in today’s attention-distracted world – to ensure our fans are interested in coming to the next show. Heck, there’s more we can do to ensure we are interested in playing our next show. What is it? Paul and Dave talk through this.

Also, what’s the magic that makes your band special? Getting some perspective on this can be helpful, at times, and your two favorite weekend warriors talk through this, as well. Press play, and always be performing!

AD(vertising) INFINITUM – Gig Gab 232

What’s it take to get you to put your pants and shoes on and leave the couch? That’s the question to ask your would-be audience when deciding how to advertise to them. You want them to get up off the couch and come to your show, so make ’em an offer they don’t want to refuse.

Paul and Dave spend the second half of today’s episode talking through all this stuff ad-related, after starting with stories from some fun Halloween/Halloweekend gigs. Press play and enjoy hearing your two favorite Weekend Warriors!
