How to Get Booked a Year in Advance


how to get bookedIn the September 25, 2010 edition of “The Business Side of Music” podcast, hosts Tob Sabella and Traci Snowe talk about how to “Get Booked a Year in Advance.”  While there’s no easy way to get booked a year in advance, it begins with planning.  Take the number of shows you want to do in a year and divide that by 52 weeks.  This will tell you how many bookings you need per week.

Making as many connections as possible is the most effective way to get booked – so if your schedule allows, take the time to visit some clubs the next time you’re making a trip out of town.  It helps to develop a relationship with club owners so that you can book periodical shows.  If you’re playing at a club every other Friday, you no longer have to worry about trying to book those dates.  Make friends with musicians who will call you to play with them – another day you don’t have to book on your own!
