So you have your garage band and want to know next step to start performing for an audience. Maybe you are parent or friend of a band member and feel band is ready to play some shows. You may just be sick of all noise coming from basement where your son or daughters band practices. Well, its not easy to get out of starting blocks, but with a little hard work, your band can get moving. When your band finally has some songs together and are playing well, now it's time to take next step. Get band out of garage and in to a gig. Of course your band wonít make much money at first, but with a well rehearsed act and some leg work your project can get off ground running. In following article I will explain a few tips your band or band manager may need to get your band some gigs or shows.
The bandís first step is to put together a quality press kit. A press kit for a start up band is usually comprised of a cover page, artist bio or introduction of band, band pictures, song list, equipment list, contact and booking information, and a demo tape or CD. Once your band becomes more established start introducing newspaper clippings, band reviews, and business cards to package. Computers make this a fairly simple task these days. Any word processor should get job done for a start up band press package. Most or all of your press packet design can be done in house and save a lot of money. If you plan on sending quite a few press packages to clubs or venues visit your local copy store and have some color copies made. Make sure your envelope stands out so that a band booker will want to open your press package. Try using a colored envelope or stickers of some sort on envelope so that a band booker will notice your press kit.
