Ok if you're a covers band wanting to play weddings...
on 17 September 2009
....Or a complete novice. Other than that, the advice here is just common sense "look at other band's websites/treat your band like a business" and at £14.97 for a mere hundred pages of large font, it's wildly overpriced.
It really doesn't cater for unsigned bands playing original music (Bird's advice being to play covers to get more gigs), and doesn't really sit well within the modern music industry - making little or no mention of myspace for example!
All in all, if you're 40 and balding and want to play Robbie Williams' 'Angels' over and over again at weddings, this book might be worth a read, otherwise I'd advise you to save your money.
