  • Starting and managing a Band

    I have been dealing with these issues since beginning of this year. Our band Broadway is now established with two first gigs behind us and three or four more coming in next few months.

    There is a site called in About.com with all kind of articles on music careers and band management:

    How to Start a Band

Then there is that music industry favorite: creative differences. Save yourself the hassle and free up your time to concentrate on the music by starting your band off on the right foot.
    I would like to hear and collect your inputs and ideas of these topics.

    Re: Any way to prevent G# key from sticking?

    I normally have my G# and low C# pads replaced with roo pads as they tend to stick considerably less than regular pads.

    Re: Where is there to try mouthpieces?

    May be not what you asked for, but Amazon has quite a selection. Returning is not a problem if you have and use Prime.
