Hey guys, I've developed something new that shows musicians how to get paid gigs without management or a social media presence. I'm taking 5 students through the course right now before the official launch and have 3 open slots left. Our first student already got his first gig on day 14. My mission has become to teach other musicians how to get paid for all the years they've sacrificed honing their craft (the average fee a band in the U.S. charges is 600-1000 dollars per gig, and it kills me to see so many hardworking musicians leaving that money on the table)- if you are interested comment below or send me a message. I'm inviting serious musicians only since I will be walking them through the process hand-in-hand wink

With heart,
Edwin @PLAYMOREGIGS

Edwin,

Can you offer a little more info such as your background, what bands/artist you've managed, booked or performed with at which venues and explain any fees involved? If you are going to solicit our community you'll have to do a lot better in your presentation including verifiable credentials, you full name and contact info including business number and applicable social media contacts. A random post with and a twitter address won't cut it. We expect info/pitch/fees etc. to be 100% upfront here.

Looking forward to learning more about your program.

Brian

Looks like you got him, Brian.


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

I actually got paid more doing a high school musical...I was part of the house band for the play, but I got paid 150 bucks, and we were doing it for free. I think our music teacher wanted us to be musicians for a living. But I made more then than I did on most gigs. It is true 100 dollars seems to be what bars wanna pay you, no matter what year it is. Unless of course you have a big fan base

For me, I had to call most of my audience. Even Facebook doesn't help gigs, because people maybe see you once if you ask them, but they aint coming every week

You want gigs? Get good and get a manager - period.


If it has strings I will find a way to play it!

I think if you wanna ask about getting gigs , ask this sites Bob Cushing.

I visited his site, and was amazed that somebody could have that many gigs per year.

Bob had to move out of Cincinatti. Sometimes you have to go where the gigs are.

Management is what you need when you can no longer handle things yourself.
Social media is just a single method of connecting with fans.

I find the 600-1000 "average" to be a bit high. Unless that includes doing your own promotion, bringing your own equipment (sound, lighting and stage), a sound guy or 2, a couple hundred hardcore fans and the venue holds more than 800.

Scam alert - playmoregigs dot com costs $99 dollars a month - they have no contact information on their site or company information like "where they are based"

Nothing on their facebook either
