The Successful Cover Band Playbook

Course Intro Video

For 7 years I was a member of one of the most successful cover bands in the Mid-Atlantic region, grossing low-mid six-figures a year. This is an EXTENDED conversation between the band leader and myself about everything that goes into what made us successful.  If you have any interest in gigging - at any level - I'm confident you'll find this very helpful!
