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

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: Stan Getz vs John Coltrane

    Agree with the lack of emotion in John Cold-Trane's playing. I am actually OK with Coltrane, but he sounds detached in a lot of his playing.
