 How to start a band that actually gets paid 

Not long ago, I remember talking with our performance coach about another band in town that was making over $3000 for each show and was booked solid.

This blew my mind. At that time, the group I was in was making $500-$800 per show. The idea of getting paid 3K was mind-blowing!

Then I saw them live.  And I remember thinking "Ohhhh, that's what's going on."  

They were doing everything over the top. 

🎤The sound.
👖The outfits.
✨The stage production.
🎶The song choice.

Every piece was methodical and was way better than what I was used to seeing groups do on a local level.

So that's EXACTLY what we set out to do with our group Big Time Grain Company when we started it. And that is what our FREE E-book was written about.
