I was a panelist for one of these events a couple years ago (audio of the event in which I participated available here):
Booking your Band
May 9, 2011
Forum will start at 6PM and will take place in the Washington room on the 5th floor of the Chicago Cultural Center
Learn how to get a gig and what questions to ask when you are finalizing the details from a panel of booking agents, club bookers and musicians. This will be an opportunity to learn what a venue is looking for (and what they are not looking for) and how to best approach a venue without being a pest.
