Top gig-getting tips…you'll be playing more shows in no time

Author, weekend warrior and marketing consultant Gareth Bird is now making his manual about how to get gigs available to more semi-pro and amateur bands and solo artists.

The new hard copy version of Gig-Getter: How to Get More Gigs than You Can Play is now available at a special price for a limited period exclusively via online retailer Amazon from

"There are Gig night tips in the manual for getting repeat bookings, testimonials from venue management and making sure you get paid. I've been asked a number of times about a hard copy version of Gig-Getter small enough to easily fit into gig-bags. Something for easy reference on the night or on the road when a band needs it" says Gareth Bird, author of Gig-Getter.

Gig-Getter has already helped bands and solo artists in more than 15 countries to find and book their own gigs without management, an agent or even a website.

Follow-up support is a major difference between Gig-Getter and it's competition. Additional tips and coaching is available from the Free monthly band bookings newsletter from the Gig-Getter website

As one reviewer on Amazon says:

"What makes this product so great is the author being available for follow-up…."

Gareth Bird is well aware that increasing licensing restrictions on live music and the effects of the recession mean venues are closing on a daily basis. The result is many bands and solo artists are struggling to get gigs.

"The special price on Amazon coupled with the current exchange rate makes the hard copy version from Amazon a great investment for musicians ordering from anywhere in the world" adds Bird
