I really enjoyed myself there and I did about 5songs so I was on stage for about 20 minutes and my one friend did end up coming to perform so everything went perfect. I made a few connections and the guy who was the show manager with the long braid, he was very professional and personable, a cool guy. I was wondering when was the next show because we would love to perform at that one also. I feel that we were one of the hottest acts there and it’s all on video too if you want to check that out…. I really appreciate you guys giving us this opportunity and we would like to continue to work with you guys also. Thanks a lot and I look forward to hearing from you soon.” – Show Up N Show Out Ent. in Cleveland

The Red 7 staff were very helpful and kind. You, Sam, and Janet have been fine to work with, well organized and answered all our questions–I’d say, we each did our part and held up to the deal. Thanks for the bonus, I have to tell you, we worked for this show–not only preparing and playing, but also selling tickets. As you know, a lot goes into a performance! I’m glad you appreciate our music, we enjoy writing, playing, creating it– making it what it is. We are happy to help the clubs and be a part of the local music scene and and i can agree with you that, “we are reliable”, as we are somewhat detail oriented and that is why we asked a lot of questiiions–so ithat it would work out well for everybody involved.

“Thank you. It was a tough weekend to sell, but the crowd was definitely decent. I even had a handful of my friends buy tickets early, and then realize that either holiday family plans or work obligations that couldn’t be changed because of the holiday, prevented them from making the actual show. Being my first show in 5 years, and my first show ever solo, I was nervous as hell, and it showed at times, but the crowd was one of the kindest and most genuine I’ve ever experienced, which shows the benefit of Afton to an artist like myself. The structure of each show creates a warm, familial atmosphere, which is always conducive for artistic expression. Thanks again. I’ve definitely valued this experience.” – AutoVerse in Syracuse

“I think I can speak for all of our band members when I say that we had a blast at the show. By far, our best show to date. All of our music was tight, and the sound guy did an excellent job EQing us. The Webster Underground is notorious for having poor sound quality but whoever did the sound on 11/21 did a fantastic job. Do you know if there any shows in the future that we could hop on the bill for? Any alternative/metal venues are fine, but we’d prefer to stay away from hardcore or anything “core” shows.

This would make a GREAT e-book, and yet you’re giving it away for free! I even got an idea while reading this for repostioning where we put our email list at the dance so that we can get more people on the list. I may experiement with email cards later, but I want to fool around with this repositioning idea first. Always try the cheaper ideas first before going to more expensive ideas, I figure.

“What’s up, just wanted 2 tell you about last night, I felt like it was a 100% Success!! Everyone at the Shawdow Lounge was really nice, it was a good vibe and good atmosphere. When I was on stage people who didn’t know me were asking my friends who I was b/c they liked my music. Brittney was the woman who was collecting ticket money and she said my preformance was good. I hope we can continue working together. Pittsburgh is such a bigger venue than down here in Steubenville and I will be ready for the next show! Thanks again! Let me know how you feel about booking me” – Scott Free in Pittsburgh

“Hey Amy, just wanted to thank you again. Thank you for allowing me to do what I love to do on stage. Every raper their raped which was good, but I feel like I was the only raper their that entertained not just my fans but other fans. I shocked the crowd by taking my shoes off on stage, stating that my parents always told me to take off my shoes when I come home, then I said I took my shoes off because Hip-Hop is my home, this stage is my home! After that I asked the bartender for a shot of Patron, then I asked the crowd should I sip it or chug it? I was very nervous be for I got on stage, but once I got on stage all my nervousness disappeared along with the fear. I really enjoyed performing! Please keep me in mind for a later date.” – Ride with me in Chicago

“Many thanks again for inviting me to be apart of your bill yesterday, I had a great time playing. And the audience, though very largely unaware of who I am, seemed to enjoy the performance equally with the small number of people there to see me. I got a gas out of them starting to clap a backbeat to a song they, surely, had never heard within this lifetime. And thus my transformation back to the Twin Cities is finally starting to feel like fun. Obviously it will take some time to get relaxed in a new city and build up that loyal base of fans. It took a couple of shows when I entered into the Duluth/Northland area and I’m sure it’ll take roughly the same amount of time and/or ‘Dues Paid’ to get a simular exceptance in the Twin Cities and local areas.

The show was an awesome one, the Dinkytowner fans were a great audience as well, they got into it and helped us have a great show! I’ve never been to the Dinkytowner before, so I thought the way the venue was setup with a pretty broad area for watching performances plus the small enclosed area right in front of the stage was pretty cool. It definitely was a groundbreaking performance for us in Minneapolis, where we’ve been trying to get shows for awhile. Thanks again for the opportunity and all the help, we appreciate it very much.

The Afton representatives were very courteous and helpful, and the business seems to be run in a very ethical manner with honesty regarding finance and the overall stream of communication.

Studio 7 does metal and has a vibe very appropriate for that. it’s also the way they tailor their sound, which is cool if that’s your thing, but it isn’t ours so much. we rolled with it, kicked out the jams, had some fun, but i feel we could be much more successful both in terms of sounding great, and drawing people, if we could be matched to a venue that better suits the style of our listeners and our music.” – Don Hutton in Seattle

“Overall I’d say we had a pretty good experience. The show didn’t end up starting until about 7:30 so a lot of our fans were mad the had to stand outside of the venue over an hour and our set got cut to 20 minutes. It was a fun show, i just wish it had been less hecktic. I know that sometimes things happen and bands dropped out, making it hard for the venue to organize things and there isn’t anything that can be done about that, my only real recommendation is to try and schedule similar acts. I like playing with different styles of bands, but at the same time it is much harder to pick up new fans when the music styles are completely difference. I really like how often I was updated about the show and how much information was sent to me. It makes things so much easier when you know the venue remembers your playing and wants to make sure your ready for the show.” – The Red Terror

Normally, there’s a lot of wacky headbanging bands that aren’t always full of talent. This was different. As for the draw, this was my lowest, so I’ve started up a mailing list and going around the place after the show for sign-ups. I’m open to suggestions for growing my fan base and my draw so let me know. I’m still undecided for the April 4th show.

“Thanks so much for the prompt reply!!! Greatly appreciated! Hey, we absolutely love working with you just as much as you like having us! That’s why I just kind of upset over the deal, because I did even question her when settling because I knew who all I had sold the pre-sell tickets too and I knew we had quiet a few walk ups and then the two guests that I had on the list for forced to buy tickets at the door, so how she only came up with 3 as walk ups made no sense especially since the two we thought could get in on our guest list had to pay. Hope everything made complete sense. You are more than welcome to call me if you should ever need too!

Thanks Again Amy for going to the extra mile to make things right.
