Getting through to Talent Buyers: Pest vs. Persistent

Jay Flanzbaum from the indispensible OnlineGigs has a great article at Galaris this month about the distinction between being effectively persistent and just bugging the snot out of a talent buyer. Most of the bands that claim “nobody will book my band” probably had someone Jay’s describing screw up their potential relationship.

  1. Hi Joe,

    According to UNAIDS, close to 30 million people have been living with HIV in 2005; 3 million died from it during that year with 4 million newly infected. This is something I’ve always felt strongly about, which led me to write a song about it, ‘Positive’.

    But this time I would like to do more. Which is why I’m launching “Indie music against AIDS”. The idea is quite simple: bring together independant musicians to produce a compilation of songs inspired by AIDS. On World AIDS Day 2006 (that is December 1st), people will be able to download all the tracks for free; in return they will be encouraged to make a donation to an AIDS-fighting charity of their choice. All the details are available on MySpace/indiemusicagainstaids.

    I’m now trying to recruit musicians to help me in this and since is a kind of inspiration for many of them (including myself), I would be thrilled if you would like to talk about it.

    Feel free to take a look at my blog if you want to check more of Baron Zero’s music.

    Thanks and keep on rocking !

    Le Baron
