Keeping Your Band Afloat

The ten biggest mistakes bands make.

If don't know now you know:

5. Laying Everything on the Table…

You're a rockstar.  Keep that fantasy.  Don't tell people how broke you are, that you're still living with your mother, or anything else that breaks the image of you fans have in their minds.

One of the reasons people like music is because they have the opportunity to live vicariously through the people they are listening to.  When you are on stage, they're up there with you.  When you're on the road in your tour bus, they're riding shotgun.  Don't take that away.

Give them insight into your life and what it's like in your world. However, be selective with the details. Always remember, you're selling music, but you're also selling a persona.
