Once you book the gigs – how do you handle all the planning, logistics, and business of playing out of town? How to arrange a tour – yourself or have someone else do it for you. Getting your music and band ready for a gig or a tour date. What to bring on tour. How to pack your equipment for a tour. What equipment do you have to bring on tour? How to “advance” your out of town gig. What should you do when you arrive at the location of your out of town gig? What should you do between arrival, set up, sound check and show time? Why should you and how do you coordinate with other acts also on your tour or play at your same gig. The dos and don’ts of club/crew/staff/merchandise relationships at out of town shows and venues.
