Subject: What Magazines do you read?
From: English Jon
Date: 06 Jun 02 - 07:28 AM

Having read through the "Folk Mafia" Thread, it seems that a lot of "breaking into the establishment" is down to advertising. "I book people I've heard of", so where is the best place to advertise? What music magazines do mudcatters read? Promotors/club organisers - Where do you look when deciding who to book for next season?

Any thoughts?

Cheers, Jon

Fair point, Mmario, but 'magazines' tend to be available on a regular periodic basis.

I don't think seeing an advert in a magazine is what people have in mind when they say things like "I book people I've heard of". The point of advertising would be to provide a reminder and contact details, for those who have heard of you in some other way.

"Anybody ever book a stranger just on the basis of an advert?" Now that's a key question. Does there come a point when enough advertising has been done when a musician automatically becomes "established" - for instance, I've still never seen Vin Garbutt, who everyone says is brilliant, but if I hadn't seen his name on so many bits of paper I doubt his name would have stuck in my head. (missed him at ely folk club the other day, which was a shame - didn't see the ad in time!!!)

So, imagine I advertise furiously, how long does it take to break into the public consciousness? People like Bill Jones seem to come out of nowhere from time to time, three months of frantic publicity and suddenly, household name status!!? I dunno...

Cheers, EJ

Yes, Vin Garbutt is brilliant. I suppose I might have seen his name in a paid advert some time, but I can't call it to mind. I'd never heard of him before I heard him, which I think is the best way.

Other than that, word of mouth is what does it, and I suppose reviews as well. Adverts make it easier to chase up someone who might be worth chasing up on the basis of word of mouth and reviews.

As for the Bill Jones's, I imagine there's a good agent in there somewhere who's got the ear of the people who do the bookings at big festivals and so forth. (Which is a variant on word of mouth.)

Dunno about Vin Garbutt, but there's some bloke called Jon Loomes who's not arf bad and should be given a slot by any club/festival bookers in the S.East UK.
I've heard him at Chippenham and MP3.com and was pretty impressed. Dunno about his cat, though - sounds a bit of a hooligan to me.
You really should go and hear him some time, EJ!

Better to have a periodical which lists venues and events. Then go to those which fit yer mold. Audition. formal, with pre-audition contact or informal; sessions, open mikes (phone, drop in, etc.). I'm thinking of clubs, bars, cafes, not CONCERTS. In our area we sometimes find a place that will consider having you come to do a couple of sets or so but most of our venues are established so are the routines you go through to secure a gig. In the St. Louis area you go to "Get Out!" which lists ALL things of an entertainment nature. Then you cull through the list, find those that will give a listen to you or (better) have sessions. There ain't a lot but there never is. Used to be if you could demonstrate that you could "draw" a crowd you could get work on as regular a basis as was possible.

Good luck!

CB

I subscribe to Dirty Linen and buy Sing Out! whenever I find it. (I know, I know; I used to subscribe AND advertise in it.) I check out on-line Musical Traditions whenever I remember to fit it into my schedule.

I think in a lot of cases, the most efficient advertising is to local radio folk shows.

Loomes? Never heard of him. The cat says "hello", by the way. Also "corr" and "shit".

So, word of mouth is the best advertising...Maybe I need to do what the Amway people do, and get all my mates frantically "network marketing"!!!

For music business stuff, I read "Gig Magazine". This magazine is totally out of the "folk, traditional" genre and that is one reason I enjoy getting it. There are articles about being in a band, sound reinforcement, singing technique, guitar chords for songs, touring clubs. Although, I sometimes don't find a lot in every issue, I am often surprised by the gems that I do find.

Plus, there is something very satisfying about getting an issue of "Gig" with a wild rocker on the front at the same time I get my Science News, and my traditional mags.
