Im aiming to work with a local band at the minute, after noticing their great potential, but unfortunatly i have very little experience in this area. Theres so much i need to learn about managing and marketing a band so would anyone please be able to pass on any valuable information relevant to this area. thanks

Hi,

The key to managing a band is getting to know as many people as possible within the industry, at a local level initially, then gradually further afield. To do this, you will need people skills, confidence and the willingness to work 'unsociable hours'.

Good luck, and keep us informed of your progress,

Lee
