It's that time again. The balancing act with poles on my nose and fingertips and toes, and my mind, split into so many tasks, set spinning precariously on top of each one.
Booking Venues and times, sending out promotions, creating posters, hiring musicians, and squeezing in rehearsals! It is a very strange place to be. The music comes first...but then why do I find myself sitting in front of my computer for hours on end? This is the side of the business that you never imagine when you get started. It's all about the rehearsals, the collaboration, the creation of music! And then someone has to do all of the grunt work, and that someone is YOU!
It's all worth it in the end though. You start to wonder about 4-6 weeks away from a tour if all the time you're spending in the office is worth a weeks worth of performing...then you send off the press kit that you've painfully crafted and you feel both satisfied and nervous, rehearsals start with amazing musicians and you feel the excitement build, and finally you hit the stage and the joy of it sets your soul on fire!
The Poster is Coming Soon! In the meantime, I would love to see you at one of these shows!
