Sax on the Web Portal - Getting Gigs

  • Getting Gigs

    Recently I've started directing a jazz band and now I am in charge of getting us gigs. So my question is: those of you that are band leaders what methods do you use to get gigs for your band?

    Do you call the venue? Do you go to the venue with a press kit (promo material and CD)? Do you mail your press kit? Do you use agents? How persistant are you with any particular venue?

    Any advice is welcome. I've been playing a long time, but this is the first time I've had the business side of music my responsibility.

    BTW, when and where to you use contracts?

    Thanks Mrpeebee,
    unfortunately I have to work hard until August 14, maybe in the coming months, if my poor English is not a problem.

    Ciao,
