Gazareth, nice stuff. I guess I’m just like you. The need to play is overwhelming. I have many bands I play in too. All different styles (Trip-hop, jazz, classical guitar/bass duo, prog-rock, punk), and I DJ some weekends also.|
My main band SORE is two friends and I. We started playing together when we were sixteen (all of us are in our late 20s now). We decided back then that we would never sell a CD. And we never have. We give away a free CD to everyone who exits one of our shows, and the costs are easily covered by door charge. We play, on average, about 70-80 shows a year. So we have played a lot of shows and given away lots of CDs. It has worked well for us. Our shows are always packed and we get lots of airplay on the college and university radio stations. And we never have to worry about advertising - its all word of mouth. We put on a great live show. Without any bullshit rock star attitudes, or light shows. Just a really kick ass, high-energy show!! Loud too!!!
So we don’t have a website BUT I put up a few tunes here.
just click the play icon and the tune will start playing. (it looks like triangle pointed sideways) May I suggest listening to “I’m Sorry”?
Jarmain – the drummer and I both own our businesses so we can take as much time as needed – when we need it. However the guitarist is still going to school, and isn’t sure what his schedule will be like. But we are trying to convince him.
If you or your friend is interested, we don’t expect anyone to work for free, we’ll pay good salary and all costs –hotel, food, and we’ll even throw in few beers every night. We are looking for someone to:
1. Translate for us. My Mandarin is horrible. And I don’t think they even know how to spell Mandarin (*-*)
2. Book at least a month of shows - 20 or more is fine - over a 30 - 40 day period. The area doesn’t matter. But booking multiple shows in one city is a good idea to cut down on traveling time.
3. Have a really good, kick ass time – hehe-this is not optional.
You don’t have to have make any promises but if you or your friend show any interest it will go a long way into helping us convince the guitarist that there is someone thinking about helping us out!!! You can PM me if you want and I give you my email.
