Getting music gigs is essential to success as a rock and roll musician. While there are many ways to get rock and roll gigs, not all methods are equally effective. Some ways may work better than others, depending on your experience level, location, and music genre. Here are some actionable tips to get booked for more gigs as a rock and roll musician and build your music career. Here’s how USER got the gig at Burnout Cafe:

Create an online rock and roll music portfolio

Creating an online portfolio of your rock and roll music is one of the most important activities you can do as a musician. Your online music portfolio should showcase your skills and experience and leave a lasting impression on the viewer and listener. 

Include samples of your music, photos, videos of you performing live, and any press or media coverage you have received. If you don’t have much experience, create a demo to showcase your music. You can also include testimonials from previous clients or fans to give potential clients an idea of working with you.

Network in the music industry

Networking is critical for your success in the rock and roll music industry. The more people you know, the more opportunities you’ll have to get booked for gigs. Attend rock and roll music events and festivals, and connect with other musicians. Follow or add them on social media and engage with their posts. You never know who in your network can help you get a gig. 

You can also join online communities and forums related to your genre of music. These communities can be great places to share your work and get feedback from other musicians. For example, search Music Facebook Groups for communities in your location and join them.

Find gigs on online platforms

Using online platforms is another way to get gigs as a music artist. There are several online platforms where you can find and apply for gigs. Popular ones for music gigs include GigSalad and The Bash. These gig platforms allow you to create a profile and showcase your work. Make sure your profile is complete and showcases your best work. You can also ask previous clients to leave reviews on your profile, which can help you get more gigs in the future.

Reach out directly to venues

Reaching out to venues is another way to get booked for rock and roll music gigs. Yelp is an online platform that can help you find these venues quickly and easily—just type in “live music” in the search bar. First, list venues in your area that hire live musicians. These can include restaurants, bars, pubs, or cafés. Next, research the types of events they host and see if your rock and roll music style fits. Then, reach out to them with your portfolio and express your interest in performing at their venue. Next, you must cold email and call the restaurant, bar, pub, or cafe directly. You never know if the venue is already looking for live rock and roll music. You can also attend events at these venues and introduce yourself to the staff.
