We’ve been doing a monthly “music” meeting for kids at The Oasis.

A free event, covering a specific topic.

March was “booking in Chicago”.

After the seminar portion, we encourage kids to meet each other.
Network, trade gigs, gear, etc.

We are fortunate have sponsored free pizza, and free goodies from labels that kids can grab.

We emailed/annoyed every agent/venue/promoter in Chicago and forced them to answer a handful of questions in hopes to make a bit of a guide to booking shows.

Here is the PDF of the bullet point handout.

This event, we had Dean from the band Chevelle came out to talk to the kids.

We recorded the event, if you’d want to listen to it.

Free stuff for the kids from top shelf records.

dean, laying down the law.

Confirm you’re going to the FREE APRIL MEETING!

Hey Bands, have you checked out the great resource Indie On The Move? It’s an impressive database of venues all across the country. They have contact info and reviews from people who have played there.

The Oasis was fortunate enough to be their featured venue of October 2010.

It really means a lot to us, as we support what they do… it’s great to feel it returned.

Check it out!
