How Musicians Can Use a Tour to Their Advantage: A Guide to Planning a Successful Music Tour
These days, bands of every caliber plan small tours. Here are some tips to keep yours successful.
Setting Up The Tour
You can find longer instructions on how to set up a tour online; really briefly, here are a few tips. Find similar bands using networking sites such as MySpace, and use a location search to ensure that they're in an area that you need a show in. Then, message the bands and ask for a show. Responses may take some time, but setting up a show through a band is preferable to going through a venue because you can take a look at who you're working with and you can make sure they're promoting your show.
Alternately, you can contact the venues, and this isn't always a bad thing; be sure to find out who you're playing with, and always promote! Nobody can come to the show if they don't know about it. Send flyers, messages, CDs and whatever else you can to potential fans, members of the other bands, and radio stations amp; magazines; you need people to be there, and the only person you can depend on to get them there is yourself.
Do whatever you can to keep gas costs down; these are likely to be your biggest costs in the end. Drive smart; use the cruise control, or if you can really concentrate on driving, accelerate down hill and try not to accelerate while going uphill. You may want to take a bit of time to research the different gas rates in different states; sometimes, there's a huge jump. My band was extremely shocked after driving through 2.01 gas prices in Arkansas when we hit 2.50 in Louisiana - right as the gas light came on.
Keep your drives to around 3-4 hours between shows; otherwise, not only will you spend a lot on gas, but you'll start to really hate being in a car, or worse, you'll get sore, which can make your shows bad.
It's easy to start treating yourself poorly while out on the road. You have to remember that your body is following the same rules as it does when you're planted in once place, and eating bad food will make you feel (and eventually look) bad. Don't stop for fast food more than once a week or so, unless it's something healthy like Subway or the like. Restaurants get pricey; if you've got a great tour schedule or don't care about money, they're fun, but otherwise you're going to have to look into getting cheap food from supermarkets. Cereal is great, though you'll have to either have a cooler for the milk or buy small amounts, and many supermarkets have salad bars or delis that are great for cheap eating. Watching your diet is key, especially for singers; if you're using your voice, avoid a lot of caffeine and don't smoke or drink heavily. You can easily lose notes from your upper register if you're not careful.
If you're going to stay in hotels, be aware that you're going to be about doubling your costs. Hotels will run you at least $30 a night. Use a website like Orbitz or Priceline to get the best prices you can, and be sure to look for something that can justify the cost; for instance, a continental breakfast is saving you the cost of eating breakfast that day, so for a full band you might be able to justify the cost. Internet can also be important for on the road promotion.
If you're going to be staying with bands, just do a little research to make sure there aren't any nasty surprises. If you don't like to party, make sure they're not partiers. See if they've got work to go to the next day and what time you need to be out of their house by. Try to be as familiar as possible with the people who are putting you up for the night.
The Rule of the Road
Overall, you need to realize that you owe bands the same courtesy that they extend to you. Be willing to give a band a show and a place to stay whenever you can, and try extra hard when they've helped you out in the past. Be courteous, friendly, and helpful. You can extend your band's buzz and have a great time as long as you think ahead and plan accordingly.
