  • Hittin' the Slopes with Air + Style - Music Connection Magazine
    past year it s still quite apparent that this is still a new festival While they clearly have the star power on the snow and on the stage there s still a little left to be desired in the way of art and technology given that s one of the fest s selling points In a place like L A there are endless possibilities to the artists and technology that can be displayed However those are just minor grievances that can be easily overlooked as the main goal of the festival is to bring entertainment and snowboarding to an audience who would otherwise miss out on it All together the 24 competing snowboarders have a pretty impressive list of achievements There are several world champions Olympic medalists and X Game medalists among the lot of them Needless to say spectators were treated to quite a show as they competed Over the two days the 24 competitors were whittled down to a top 16 which was then cut down to a top eight and then a final four With crazy names like stalefish Japan air frontside cork 1440 onlookers did not necessarily need to understand the snowboard language to understand that what these guys were doing was an amazing feat of daring and athleticism When attendees weren t enthralled by the battles ongoing at the ramp they were treated to amazing performance by the likes of J Cole Haim Rudimental Kaskade Travis Barker All Time Low and more Production value was not skimped on as the sound quality and lighting for all performances was high caliber much like the performances themselves Even if the festival just focused on music it would have done well as every artist put on a show that would make any fan feel as if they were at one of the artist s concerts as opposed to an outdoor festival It s easy for there to be a disconnect between audience and musician during huge festivals yet the performers at Air Style overcame it easily There s a reason they re such big names after all While still working on finding its bearings and making snow work in not so snow friendly L A Air Style could very well soon prove itself worthy of being a destination during festival season It very well could also pave the way for more big festivals in the same vein bringing extreme sports and music to areas that may not necessarily have the opportunity to enjoy them outside of a television screen Anyone who wasn t able to attend the festival can catch video footage exclusively on mobile through go90 which is an app that can be downloaded via App Store or Google Play Photos and text by Victoria Patneaude Disclaimer The words expressed in photo blog reviews do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Music Connection Magazine Tags Air Style All time low haim J Cole Japan air Kaskade Rudimental travis barker Previous Story DMC DJ 2016 Battles Starting Next

  • Getting the Gigs: How to Approach Promoters to Book the Shows that Matter - Music Connection Magazine
    part of your live performance strategy This may mean a postponement of taking your shows to the next level First build yourself up as a quality act and the promoters and talent buyers at bigger venues will come to you It is far better for your career to play two or three shows a month for six months and have 100 people turn up for every single show than it is to play one show in front of 2 000 people and then not play another show for six months If your audience numbers are not growing and perhaps even dwindling then you are not capable of sustaining the interest of your existing audience let alone a larger one Remember your aims you want to cause every person at every show to think I am going to the next show by this band and I ll bring all my friends to that same show and post about the band online to tell everyone how completely incredible they are and I am going to buy their T shirt and a CD and download their music get on their mailing list go to their Facebook page and and and That is why you should take a gig And that gig may be in the same bar or club you have played at what seems like a thousand times But playing the same bar a few times over is the best way to work on your show work on your rapport try things out and ultimately impress the audience make new fans and sell more merchandise Getting the shows some basic research Okay you have defined some goals and started on your strategy The next step is to undertake some detailed research into the different types of venues in your town or state Think hard about how your band is going to fit into the various venue environments different venues are known to audiences as having a certain genre of music or audience type Your town may have a bar that books deep house DJs and electronic acts for instance There might also be a local House Of Blues type of venue that books alternative bands Both are considered to be cool places to go and check out music and each venue s music booking policy attracts a certain audience type The question is will your band s music be appropriate for the first venue or the second Get this wrong and nobody will turn up and see you even if you do get a booking So for instance an alternative rock band based in New York should not try to get a gig at Birdland the city s famous jazz club but would probably approach Arlene s Grocery which is a small alternative rock venue It may be harder to judge your appeal to audiences at out of town venues So do some basic research look at those venues website Twitter feeds or even their local newspaper ads Check out what other
