If you’re willing to make the drive, Loveland Startup Week has now added an Art Track with several free sessions related to performing artists. On April 7th, the Rialto Theater will be hosting a session called “Inside the Mind of a Venue Manager.” Yes, this sounds like scary stuff, but it’s necessary insight for any performing artist. It also doubles as a great music networking event.
This particular session takes place at the Devereaux Room at the Rialto (Friday, April 7th; 10am till noon) and will be a panel format, moderated by Rialto Theater Manager Bryan Zellmer. It will feature four, influential panelists:
It’s a great opportunity to meet these venue managers and get a sense of their needs, and how they think about your needs when it comes to scheduling and marketing your shows. They will most likely talk about the Do’s and Don’ts of booking efforts and how to present yourself to the powers that be. Plus, it’s an intimate enough format so that you can meet these decision-makers in person, find out their likes and dislikes, maybe get a private cell#, etc. – networking and education are always great things for any musician…make the drive!
