I got sick of my band having to sell tickets for shows, or playing shows "just for exposure." It's hard work being a musician, and music gear plus travel is not cheap. So I spent the last couple years building a spreadsheet of contact-persons for shows that typically pay $500+ per show, are only 1-1.5 hours long, and already have a built-in audience/following. These shows are mostly municipal concert series, fairs, and festivals taking place throughout NJ. Many of these shows are in the summer, but about 25% of them are year-round. These contacts could be used year after year.
The spreadsheet lists each show's location, name of the contact person, and their email address and phone number. You can then email them information about your band. If you're a good fit for their show, they'll let you know a date and price, and then they will have you return to perform year after year if all goes well. These "leads" have worked wonders for several of my music projects, and I'm giving other musicians and bands a chance to benefit from this too.
The spreadsheet consists of direct contact people for 90 shows, and it's up-to-date. For the hours upon hours I've spent over years building and maintaining this list, it is very reasonable to charge only a dollar per contact. For an investment of $90, you have access to 90+ shows that pay $500+ per gig, and these shows already have a built-in audience/following that will increase your band's fanbase. This is perfect for a band that wants to go pro, or for a professional band to expand their paid shows. If you'd like to purchase the list, you could meet me in person and I will hand you a hard copy of the list and also email you the spreadsheet file along with brief instructions. Or payment could be made through PayPal (with buyer protection) and I'll email you the spreadsheet with brief instructions on how to get the most out of it.
Serious inquiries only. Include your name and phone number.
P.S. Please do not ask me to be a booking agent for your band. Instead, I am offering you the tools (i.e. the contacts!) to easily do that yourself and keep 100% of what you earn. It's not hard and it's not that time-consuming. You just need the right contacts.
