Planning to do a CD release party and am in the research phase. I wonder if anyone has put on one of these, and what they did at it. Our CD will be original jazz/fusion feature piccolo bass as the lead, and a keys/drums/bass foundation. Naturally, we'll be selling our CD. I was thinking of getting some t-shirts made up, but am open to other suggestions for merchandise, format, features, beyond simply performing the original music. I don't want it to be just like another performance except we're selling a CD. I would like to make it different somehow, and am looking for ideas. Also looking for suggestions on what you think the general kind of venue should be. BTW, we are not signed with anyone. We created the CD because we wanted to. Thoughts welcome!
