Summer time is a fine time to take your show on the road, but if you've never hit the live circuit outside of your hometown, the process can be a little daunting. How will you get shows? How will anyone know who you are? And perhaps most importantly, how will you pay for it all?
The good news is that if you're a seasoned live musician, you already know most of what you need to know to tackle life on the road - you simply have to up your game and do it on a bigger scale. The trick to putting together your first tour - and making sure it's not your last - is to make smart decisions about where you're going and the best ways to get the most bang from your buck from your shows, so you can actually turn this concert series into a real chance to earn new, long lasting fans.
