Canadian/Mexican Bands Coming To The US: Pay Attention!

If I wanted to travel from Idaho to Canada and play music for a month, I could do so free of charge. If you live in Canada and want to cross the border to play in the United States, it’s much more complicated. Why is this? Well, the United States can be pretty hostile to foreign travelers, as most of us are aware. Additionally, navigating a new culture and place in a foreign country can be hard. In addition to your normal road trip preparations, there are a bunch of legal complications you need to account for. I want to talk about some of them here and hopefully your band won’t struggle as much while you try to play music and enjoy these troubled states.

Beginners Guide: 5 Tips For Buying Drums

As a beginner drummer, one of the most exciting moments is finally buying your own drum set. After all, there is nothing like learning how to play drums with your own kit at home. But as drum sets tend to be quite an investment and space-consuming, buying one is not something you do without consideration and careful comparison of different models and brands.

The quality of your kit will directly affect how good your playing will be. This is the main reason why it is crucial to choose the best but most affordable one that is perfect for a beginner like you. The great thing about the drum set is that it can easily be upgraded piece by piece, so you can also slowly save up for upgrades and other parts.

Most Popular Music Genres: It Is Completely Different Than You Believe

Music comes in many different forms and not all of them are equally popular. Maybe you are into a specific type of music and maybe you like 1 or 2 genres more, but the thing is, most people prefer just one genre.

Many talented singers and music producers have come across a track, a sample, or some professionally recorded piece of music that they just know they need to use on their next song.

The Downsides To Using Fiverr For Music Production

Top 4 Easy Ways For Your Band To Go Green 

Nope, I’m not talking about covering Green Day, nor am I talking about terrible nausea that turns you green and—you know what happens next. I know you know what I’m talking about.

You have to think about getting along with each other, actually putting out good music, booking your next gig, and staying sane. No small task. But still, if you’re in this for the long haul, you don’t want to be that band: the one showing no consideration for anything but your oh-so-basic band activities. Your band will feel a whole lot better if you do something besides care about yourselves.
