Advertising to get Gigs

2132 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  saxguy007
I have played lots of gigs in college and beyond, but I now have a day job and a great family. I have kept up my playing and I'm anxious to start putting my name out there for wedding and similar functions. i have thought of fliers, web ads, and business cards, and going to local bridal shops and such to put my cards there. I don't want to spend too much and mostly want to start gigging again. Any suggestions? Also, I live in a smaller college town. thanks!

as Monk told Lacy, "If you want to be IN the scene, you have to be ON the scene" :)

Go out, be seen, visit places where others are playing 10x more than your own gigs, be known among them, sit in where you can, but sit close by if you can't. Your reputation will spread among precisely the sort who you need as your endorsements, they'll ask you to fill in, take a gig they can't take, recommend you to others. It's an ancient strategy :)
