How to grow your band:
Everything you need to know in one place
Hi. My name is Tim Wenger.
I spent the past decade playing in gigging bands. Along the way, I’ve made plenty of mistakes- from overbooking a market, to not taking the time to learn the best way to promote my band.
Then I got a job as the editor of a music magazine, and another as a talent buyer at a long-running venue in Denver. I saw the industry from the other side, and learned what venues, media, managers, and other industry pros want to see from bands.
In my new book So, You Have A Band, I discuss everything a young musician needs to know to grow a band. You’ll learn how to present yourself professionally to media and venues. How to form an LLC or S-Corp. How to draft a band agreement. How to book your first DIY tour, social media presence for bands, and much more.
For the amateur or aspiring musician, So, You Have a Band is a must-have resource for building your music career as an entrepreneurial business and setting out on the path to success.

Problems within the band
Tim is phenomenal. He brings a perspective from the music industry that can be applied to any other industry. The brand building of an individual or a band is very focused, very sharp, and he takes that lens and applies (it) in ways that are often forgotten.Nick BoschHireVue

I got all the guys in our band to read this book, and it helped us get on track with the back-of-house stuff. Tim basically told us exactly what we needed to do, and the operation of the group is much smoother now.Tommy ValdezVocals & Guitar, Through the Plains
