Expert Chat Replay: Bands, Fans & the Future of the Music Industry
This week, Jim sat down with veteran music agent Wayne Forte (Founder and President, Entourage Talent Associates, Ltd.) to talk about his work with Tedeschi Trucks Band.
When the band couldn’t do their beloved annual live show, he helped them set up live broadcasts of last year’s show recordings to bring fans together and support the band and crew with ticket sales, merchandise sales, and donations. The resulting experience was amazing for all involved — interacting with fans in chat and seeing them connect and reminisce about past shows was a highlight.
They also talked about NITO, a non-profit dedicated to supporting the welfare of anyone who works in the live music business (including crew and venue staff), and Jim shared the latest Return Readiness Score from our ongoing consumer survey.
