Webinar: How to Book Better Gigs

Wednesday, Feb. 29, at 6:30 p.m.

Frustrated with trying unsuccessfully to land what you consider to be the right gig for your band? Talent buyer won't return your emails or phone calls? Feeling like you should be able to get into clubs that won't even give you the time of day?

Maybe you're doing it wrong.

The Portland Music Foundation brings together a panel of experts to discuss the principles of booking like a professional, how you can play the right room for your band, and how you can work your way up the venue food chain.

Here's who's talking:

Mark Lourie - VP, Skyline Music. Mark is responsible for booking gigs for nearly 80 touring bands throughout the Western United States, including acts like the Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band, the Smithereens, Leon Redbone, Roger McGuinn, and many other household names.

Charlie Levy - owner of Stateside Presents, in Tucson, Arizona. Stateside operates 16 venues in Arizona, of many different sizes.

Ryan Dolan - Booker for Empire Dine & Dance, and former new media coordinator for Live Nation and tour manager and drummer for the Sheila Divine.

Jason Spooner - Head of the Jason Spooner Trio and solo artist, who last year played shows in more than half of the 50 states and has shared the stage with the likes of BB King, Little Feat, Michael Franti, Sara Bareilles, and many more.
