Before I got into the topics at hand on this episode of With A Voice Like This, I talked briefly about the why the last show being cancelled because of a tornado that went through NW Indiana and a picture some of the podcast gallery had seen and I put the link in the show, here’s a link to the picture I took:
With one of the group being out of town for a bit, it gives us a chance to look at both legacy media and new media with 4-AM. Taking a look at BlogCatalog and its submission and approval practices. Working to get more clips out on the blog/website and looking to schedule a photoshoot as soon as possible and working on more arrangements for the group with rehearsal cuts.
Talking about the upcoming gigs for 4-AM, the Podcast Gallery asked if all the gigs were paid and that lead to a discussion about the value of doing free gigs and how we decide as a group to do something for free. Then a discussion about motivations for doing what I do specifically with my music and is it happening fast enough for me. I may be using a Mac? Yes, I could possibly be getting back to a being a cross-platform person with the addition of a MAC G4 Cube as a gigging computer.
Building relationships with venues by having press available for them and then linking to them through the gigs page to include pricing, location info and build audience. We want to get invited back to the venue. Building that good reputation for both the group and the venue by combining all the information into easy to access clicks. And build a little by having a different performance the night before, you can’t beat it when you’ve got a quality performance at a quality venue.
