Eveyone is having the same story about booking
at every level of playing. Another option I thought
of and have worked it a little across the pond
(Romania, Czech, Germany,) Is to use local musicians/bands.
I'm interested in setting up a network of musicians around the world
that are available to play concerts in their area for artist that are on tour
in their area (state/country).
The expense of traveling with a band and van full of gear is sometimes not
possible and one way to get around it is to have the featured artist travel
alone, and forward the music (MP3/Charts) ahead of time to musicians/bands.
This will require independent musicians that can work on their own, have
gear, transportation, reading music not required but, will be a plus, and work
in a band on the spur of the moment with say, 1 or 2 rehearsals, have a site
were people can hear/see them play. Myspace & YouTube page will be the places.
Would be great for bands that can back a singer/featured artist.
Hope you can get the picture of the network and it's value. That's all for now
until we get some responses to this, Pro's & Con's, as I'm sure there will be.
Please reply with comments, concerns, interests and so on.
Do you think it can generate work for musicians around the world ?
