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

    I would like to hear and collect your inputs and ideas of these topics.

    Re: Mouthpiece that struggles in the upper register

    No. On the other hand, if that toolmaker was also a professional saxophone player and knew what measurements where played like what, then ... still no. He would still have to make final adjustments...

    Re: FS- Selmer mark vii Tenor sax- early model!

    No dispespect but I suspect it would take a little longer to create an aestheticly pleasing repair.

    Re: Buescher 156 tenor arrival, and question re key heights
