Gigs & Beyond How important is touring and gigging when it comes to getting a band noticed? It's so big we dedicated an entire page to it. Truth is apart from Radio airplay itís probably the biggest thing you can do to get your band noticed by mass groups of people. Mass groups of people means mass amounts of money. Word of mouth about your music in conjunction with a solid live presentation is a powerful thing, and popularity is contagious among teenagers. One day, youíll get to a place where you'll see your buzz factor take off like a runaway train, when you get here a slam dunk live delivery is like pouring gasoline on a fire. Huge draw potential will always lead to bigger and better things in this Industry, and at the end of the day it's one of the biggest bargaining chips you havee when being evaluated by a major label. Below are just some of the secrets I've learned over the years sleeping in a vans and playing 200+ shows a year. It is a lot of work but it can also be one of the wildest rides you'll ever experience. Enjoy!
