what is the best way to get club owners to return calls.. or club managers.. it seems they rarely return calls for bands.. and it's not just me.. the other bands I have spoken to complain of the same.. some bands bigger than us/me. How do you all get club owners' attention? CD? Promo photos? e-mail? I call places.. they say to e-mail.. I e-mail.. they don't respond.. it's really unbelievable.. and when I check out their websites I see they have slots opened months from now.. it seems there are some clubs that just do not want us in their rotation.. we're on the outside looking in.. I thought it was personal.. until I talked with several top bands in my area.. they have the same issues with various clubs.. and funny one club that does book us all the time.. will not return bigger bands' calls or e-mails.. why? Struggling to understand.. we have the pictures, etc.. we have the songlists.. people like them.. what am I missing? Besides demos.. we're a new band, admittedly.. but everyone was new at first.. and after talking to established bands having the same issues.. it's amazing.. some club owners drink too much.. like anyone else.. and are just unorganized.. short of driving around.. I guess I need to walk into these places with a promo package.. vs mailing them, etc. myspace has not helped, either.
