Hello world!

Welcome to WordPress.com.


Before we get started, please understand that the information stated in this blog comes from personal experience. Please feel free to disagree with anything written here.
There are many guides and references out there which are all useful tools and keys to success for your endeavors into the genre of your choice.
The biggest obstacle I have found is to form a band willing to take on many of the required formalities along the journey to desired stardom. This means the proverbial “T” word TEAM.
Everyone in the band has to contribute something other than raw & or technical talent.
Starting with the “Behind the Scenes” person, which you have to have if you are going to get past the concept of “we just want to play for fun, on week-ends”. There are a million bands out there doing that. I am talking about a band that wants to go all the way to getting signed by a label, and performances on large stages, radio play, & TV, etc.
The “Behind the Scenes” person has to be the glue that holds the band together during the rough times. He has to share in the dream. He has to be knowledgeable in many aspects of the business. Uh-oh, there’s the “B” word. Yes, your band is a business by the time you even think of forming a band with stardom in mind.
I have seen where one of the band members tries to be the manager. That is very honorable. But, experience shows that he is the leader of the band’s performance, and not the manager.
Don’t be cheap. Get a separate manager. This person will have alot to do which will require something more than moral support and cheerleading.
I will be writing a series of articles in the future which will provide valuable information on the tools you need as a manager, as well as things that the band members should do to contribute to the band’s ultimate success.
I will attempt to answer any questions individually, depending on where you are with your endeavors. If I don’t get to your specific question right away, I will probably be covering it in an upcoming topic. The series will be in as logical of an order as possible, although you don’t neccesarily have to do things in a specific order.

    I hope you are able to walk away with some useful thoughts after reading my phylosophy on Bands’ and commitment to the art. That’s really what it comes down to… “if it was easy, anyone could do it”…

    This Band has had many ups & downs as have many other Bands. They have maintained a Rehearsal Studio for the past 10 years though, and that is commitment when its money coming out of your pocket. This is not a weekend hobby band. They have serious Musicians with serious backgrounds in music theory and they produce a sound that is not cookie cutter like so many other bands out there are doing. So I’m not really sure what you mean by haven’t done anything in the past 10 years? They do have a legit CD on the Market. You can find links to that product through http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/INNRCOR or on their website at http://www.innrcor.com … They have made a splash on the Music Scene in 2011, in Dallas for Original music in places such as Deep Ellum and surrounding area. Also, they are actively promoting and trying to bring the music scene alive in Deep Ellum and surrounding area by supporting other “Original Music” Bands in the area. You can follow that on their Facebook link at “Deep Dallas Promotions”. They are currently looking into spending time in the studio producing a new album. Thanks for the comments.

    “INNRCOR” has been busy, although not readily obvious in some circles. They have had various personnel changes. They have had various Live performances, been in the Studio, and released a new E.P. over the past few months. On Saturday-July 28th-2012, they will receive a Plaque for their Performance at the “Curtain Club” in Dallas, Texas. They are endeavoring to keep performing live and to go back to the studio in the near future. In the meanwhile, they are currently ranked #16 on the Revernation standings for Rock in Dallas, Texas. Not famous yet, just working at it… Peace & Rock On…
