I recently had the opportunity to develop the logistics report for the Power of One Tour.
As I continue to work on The 2009 Music Ministry Marketing Guide, I’ve come to understand some concepts a lot better. As I had previously written about The Millionaire Artist, I still think that it is possible, even in an extremely niche situation, to find some success in the marketplace. This idea, however, is now backed with a more realistic model to go along with the revamped 12-month millionaire method.
I figure that a more strategic model is in order, and a more defined approach to putting up numbers will probably allow for more continued success for artists.
Just a Few Resources:
One of my major resolutions this year has been to go to as many concerts/music events as possible. And so, tonight I attended the 33rd annual M.I.C. Kickoff concert at the Golden Heights Church of Christ. Now, The show was scheduled to begin at 6:00pm, but, well….
6:15 pm – Audience is light. Waiting on crowd to file in. I’m thinking that this may be a good show, but i’ll reserve judgment for the post show thoughts.
6:24 pm – Most of the talent is here. Emcee is setting lineups.
6:30 pm – Still waiting on show to begin.
6:35 pm – The soundcheck is concluding. Harvey Jackson is addressing the crowd. 33 years with this concert? Long time running.
6:49 pm – Show is underway! Pete is a tight encee. I am looking forward to the actual singing.
6:51 pm – First up – The 15th street choralaires.
7:12 pm – Set concludes
7:13 pm – Revelation set
7:33 pm – Set Concludes
7:36 pm – Golden Heights Ensemble
7:49 pm – Set Concludes
7:53 pm – The Exciting Enchanters
8:14 pm – Set Concludes
8:15 pm – Literary Recital
8:29 pm – Recital Over // Back to the music
8:30 pm – The Dothanaires
8:52 pm – Set Concludes
8:54 pm – The True Believers
Post-Show Thoughts: Tonight was a really good show. I liked that every group pretty much stayed within the 20 minute timeframe and that al the groups were appealing. I especially liked Revelation and The Exciting Enchanters. Next up – The Melo-D-Heirs in February.
By the way, You can see photos from the show at Flickr.
When I posted the The Millionaire Artist article two weeks ago I had planned to create a downloadable document that people could print but never got around to it. Well, a little quality time in front of the laptop during the debate and I am finished. The booklet is primarily the same as the article, though, the booklet has an appendix with links to my research that you too can look at as you work with your ministry.
Good Times //
