Description

Welcome to Live Music Boot Camp!

Week one is focused on ... how to get gigs!

We'll help you unravel the many challenges in the booking process and help you get more gigs (and better gigs) for you or your band. Learn how the booking ecosystem works and how to make a lasting impression on the people who book the stages you want to play.

Whether you're a new artist looking to play out locally, or a more established band who would like to hone your skills and land better shows on tour ... this class is for you!

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Veteran Talent Buyer and Event Producer Mike Henry took his first steps into the entertainment industry as co-owner, talent buyer, and promoter for iconic 90’s indie rock haven, the Electric Lounge and as a touring musician with Austin’s infamous Asylum Street Spankers. After working to build, program, and operate another of Austin’s most progressive and adventurous performance spaces -- The North Door -- Mike moved to fabulous Las Vegas in 2013. Henry’s path as a curator and producer continued in his adopted hometown as talent buyer for The Bunkhouse Saloon, co-director for Neon Reverb Music Festival, and more recently as co-founder of A Beautiful Perspective and music programmer for its flagship event, the inaugural Emerge Impact + Music festival on the Las Vegas strip
