Tips for a successful tour

Band concert tour postersWe recently played a gig where the only trumpeter lost his trumpet between parking his car and getting backstage. With so many logistics to organise –¬†people, instruments, music stands, venues, parking, uniforms¬†– it’s sometimes a wonder that any gigs go off without a hitch.

If you’re thinking of taking your band on a state, national or international tour, the¬†organisation alone can be too much to get it off the ground. If you successfully hit the road you need to stay ahead of the game. You are relying on so many people and need to be on your toes all the time.

Bandman helps you keep your dates, set lists, contact details and artists in the one spot. We’ll help you take care of the finer details so you can focus on not losing your trumpets. Or trumpeters.

To get you started on the right foot, Chris Robley from CD Baby has put together a list of bite sized suggestions for organising your band’s next tour. Venues, hotel logistics, merchandise sales, tips on negotiating fees and more; it’s a pretty comprehensive list to get you well on your way to a successful tour.
