After our CEO David Dufresne finishes a whirlwind tour of conferences in Nashville, New Orleans, Atlanta and San Francisco, he’ll then be off to Europe for some events there (more details on that soon). Sadly, he couldn’t fit any of us into his luggage for that trip (note to ourselves: buy the boss a bigger suitcase for Christmas).
So, our Director of Artist Relations Dave Cool will take over the North American leg of the Bandzoogle Fall Tour from here, starting with trips to Toronto and New York City. Here are the details:
OCFF: October 11-14 in Mississauga
OK, it’s not exactly in Toronto, but not too far away (about 45 minutes). OCFF is the key event for Ontario’s folk, roots, and traditional music community, and this has become one of our favorite conferences. So we’re happy to have a solid presence there again this year. Here’s where you’ll be able to find us:
Website Demolition Derby
Saturday, October 13
Dave Cool will be leading our signature “Website Demolition Derby” panel, where websites will be critiqued live in front of an audience.
Free Website Reviews
October 12 & 13
On the Friday & Saturday of the conference we’ll have a table set-up from 10AM to 6PM offering free website reviews to musicians. Come by to say hello, get your website reviewed, have some free candy, and if you’re already a member, pick up a free t-shirt too! Dave, along with David and Melanie from our support team will be on hand giving reviews.
October 12 & 13
We’ll also be offering free website reviews in the Exhibit Hall when it’s open on the Friday & Saturday of the conference.
CMJ: October 16 in New York City
From Toronto, Dave will (maybe) have enough time to get home to Montreal, do some laundry, and then head out to New York City to speak on a panel at CMJ. Details:
The Art of Creating a Superb Website for Musicians
Tuesday, October 16
Panel Description: A musician's website can be a luminous tool highlighting an artist’s brand, or a disastrous representation of career doom. What should a homepage look like? What are some of the key factors involved to launch and maintain a successful site? Your website is your faceplate and your mouthpiece to the world, and these dedicated professionals are here to show you how to get online traction to match your music.
If you’ll be attending CMJ, be sure to come say hello to Dave at this panel!
