The MMA is proud to present the "Booking and Touring 101" educational seminar. Booking is extremely time-consuming and touring can be very costly if you aren't careful. Successful touring takes more than just booking the performance and showing up to play. Our panelist bring some amazing experience and insight on the topic. Theres the club perspective - what do they expect from you if they book you in their club? Theres the booking agent perspective - what do they expect from you if they book you in a club and what can you expect from a booking agent? And, finally, thoughts from a touring musician on what it takes to book a successful tour. There will be information for everyone from seasoned musicians to those of you just starting to wander outside the Twin Cities metro area.
