After successful (and fun!) trips to the Americana Music Conference in Nashville and the San Diego Music Thing, our Fall Tour continues with a trip back to Nashville, then a visit to New Orleans:
IBMA Business Conference: September 24-27 in Nashville
Our CEO David Dufresne is headed back to Nashville for more Southern hospitality, great live music, incredible ribs and fried chicken, oh, and he’ll be speaking at the International Bluegrass Music Association Business Conference too. Here are the details of his panel:
Promoting Your Bluegrass in Virtual Music Communities
Wednesday, September 26
Moderator: Henri Deschamps (Bluegrass Legacy)
David Dufresne (Bandzoogle)
Craig Havighurst (Bluegrass Nation)
John Lawless (Bluegrass Today)
Brian McNeal (Prescription Bluegrass)
Description: If you’ve been struggling to get tangible results from promoting your music on the many different virtual music communities and promotional sites, you won’t want to miss this session! Learn to harness a variety of online media – writing, sound, audio, video, and photography – to promote your bluegrass, and how to make things happen with little or no money.
Bandzoogle is also happy to sponsor the new website from IBMA, www.bluegrassnation.org, which will serve as a community and a platform for news, information sharing, promotion, education and all kinds of media relevant to the bluegrass world. Watch for its launch soon!
Cutting Edge Music Business Conference: September 26-30 in New Orleans
Straight from Nashville, our jet-setting CEO heads to New Orleans for the Cutting Edge Music Business Conference.
But David won’t have too much time to stuff his face with gumbo and po-boys (those are sandwiches people!) as he’ll be very busy while visiting the birthplace of jazz. You can catch David several times during the conference, here are all the details:
Social Media Marketing: Let’s Get Social
September 27, 3:30 – 4:45PM
This panel will discuss various social media platforms to promote music, best practices on Facebook, Twitter, growing your mailing list, different ways to help monetize social media and more.
Website Demolition Panel
September 29, 2:00 – 3:15M
This panel will offer live reviews of audience members’ websites.
September 29, 3:30 - 5:00
One-on-one website reviews and consultation on musicians’ online strategy.
Bandzoogle is based in Montreal, Quebec, and both the New Orleans and Quebec flags share a common symbol: the fleur-de-lys. The fleur-de-lys is most often associated with the French monarchy (Or with the New Orleans Saints’ logo, really).
So if you’ll be in Nashville or New Orleans for these conferences, be sure to go see David at one of his panels or clinics. Like usual he’ll probably have some free t-shirts for members, so hit him up for one of those, and if it’s after 5PM, ask him to buy you a drink, he likely won’t refuse.
