FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, December 07, 2008 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The artist utility company, America Needs Me, has decided to undertake a daring and unorthodox endeavor.
Watching the music industry change with the onset of digital recording and distribution, it seems clear that more bands will need to perform beyond their geographic region of origin.
There are bands and musicians on the road, making their way from region to region to promote their music at bars and clubs. America Needs Me has devised a way of organizing that already present independent tour culture into a self-policing tour circuit through the online supplement of forums and listings.
The framework can be viewed by going to www.americaneedsme.com/Trailblazer.
Venues can have their contact information and profile listed on the site, and can post in the forum regarding their schedules or reviews of bands.
Bands can contact those listed venues to schedule their performances and read reviews of those forums by other bands as well as leave reviews of the venues.
We are confident that this idea will help improve the small performance portion of the music industry and provide a safe and professional circuit through which musicians can build their grassroots following and venues can improve their client base and monthly revenue.
America Needs Me is prepared to launch the Trailblazer Tour with two bands from the New York/New Jersey area and two bands from the South Florida area in May of 2009.
From our vantage, we can either complain about the changes in the world, or take those bold steps to make the world a better place. Musicians who heed the call to join the tour circuit can go to www.americaneedsme.com/forums as can owners of venues and booking agents.
American ingenuity, drawn from the courage of individuals, has consistently caused great improvements throughout history. We seek to use the musical works of our citizens to enthuse our spirits and invigorate the economy in these otherwise uncertain times.
Product manufacturers and distributors wishing to sponsor one or more of the touring bands can contact [email][email protected][/emal].
The Trailblazer Tour is phase one in what will become, in the next two years, a nationwide independent tour network.
