Everything You Need to Know About Playing Gigs
If you're a musician in Colorado's Front Range, you've probably have been to Herman's Hideaway on south Broadway. And there's a good chance you've played there at some point, too. Herman's is one of the best venues in town for giving new bands a shot at getting on stage and working their way up. And if you know Herman's, you know David Barber, the guy always working the door on weekends. Did you know, he's not just the guy checking IDs and taking your money - he also is a founding member of the Colorado Music Association and the builder of RockOnColorado.com, and has been on some of the committees that select bands for the largest showcases and festivals in Colorado.
All this is to say that he's seen it all when it comes to bands. And after years and years of giving out the same advice to band after band, he's put it all into a book. I bought the book myself, and it's really good. If you are a band trying to get your first few bookings - or you are a band that has played out, but seems not to be able to do any repeat bookings - check it out. There's a lot of information - both commonsense and insider - in this book.
