I’m currently on a 3 month tour with Drum Tao in the US and Canada. Consequently, I’m a bit behind with communications so forgive me. Here’s a post I hope you’ll just put in the back of your head.
Touring in the entertainment industry comes with it’s own unique challenges compared to gigging from a static location. It also has some great takeaways.
Here are my Top 5 Positive Takeaways for Touring:
#1 – You meet great people from all different geographical areas and social walks of life.
#2 – You get the opportunity to improve the production every day.
#3 – You learn how to live with less.
#4 – You pick up local lore and learn that other people put their pants on one leg at a time.
#5 – Per diems more than pay for your normal consumption meaning that you can bank money.
Be a good person.
