Yes, I know Paul was kind of to create a new forum just recently, but I thought I might as well through my idea out there. We do have a gig stories forum, but we have no forum established with the implicit purpose of helping people with band management and live performance information. Many members of Talkbass are involved in bands, whose plans revolve around regular gigging, on the national level, the local level, or just for informal occasions. We have a plethora of knowledge and experience from Talkbassers who have been gigging since the bass guitar was invented. A Band Management and Performance forum could help people with managing bands, recording and distributing demos and press kits, establishing web page content (or even technical web page issues), booking, performing, advertising, communicating with club/bar/festival/corporate management, sound engineers, club PA systems, PA systems in general, do's and don'ts of live performance, and much more. Creating a viable and working band is a detailed and intricate process. Unfortunately, very little information exists for beginners on how to go about this. With the experience we have here I think a specific forum of this nature would be very beneficial.
