UP FRONT POINT: I wrote this a long time ago, and delayed posting until now so it wasn't clear what venue I was talking about when I posted this. Enjoy!
My job has a lot of small parts, but it all pretty much boils down to two main parts:
There can be a lot of moving parts with step two. I manage my own social media, produce every bit of content that you see from me, including youtube videos, music releases, email list notes, this blog post, instagram images, reels, and more. I have meetings with potential venue contacts to host the show, college professors who might want to have me visit their campus, and other musicians so we can share knowledge.
I use a journal, a calendar, and some apps to keep it all together. It works pretty well, and most of the time, there aren't a ton of problems.
Yesterday, though, all it felt like I did was catch mistakes that I had made in the past. I found:
I was able to fix a few of them, and a few of them are a bit too late to fix (sorry performing arts center in Chicago who I didn't spell correctly!) What a mess, and I left the coffee shop with a big face palm.
Oh well. I miss notes sometimes also. If anyone would like a perfect performance, I would kindly refer them to Stan the computer. He does great.
