Sax on the Web Portal - Starting and managing a Band

  • 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

Well, remember that if all goes well, your band mates are the people you're going to be spending hours in the rehearsal space and studio with, not to mention hours crammed into the back of van, often sans showers. 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: Super Boston Tenor Sax

    Yes I see what you mean, on very close examination on the bell to bow ring you can just make out made in Italy, so it is probably from the Orsi stables like you sugest. will search for info on Orsi.
