What Goes Around, Comes Around

Always remember, dear band boys and girls, BE NICE. It (usually) doesn’t cost you anything extra and can go a long way in getting you that next booking.

I happened to overhear an exchange between two booking agents today that had worked together to package an out-of-state show. The show went well, and the bands that each contributed did great, but they were less than impressed with the professionalism of another band on the ticket. These two agents – who both happen to be influential in the inter-state booking niche – have, I’m sure, filed this information away for future use and the band, has quite probably, eliminated a few juicy bookings in at least three states. The worst part is that the band’s not even aware of it, so there’s nothing they can do to correct it. Way ta go, Idaho!

Even if things aren’t going your way, and trust me, there will be a lot of gigs that won’t, suck it up and be professional. Remember, the ass you save is most likely your own.
