Black Veil Brides Fans Are Crazy - Stories From The Bodyguard // Matt Yanni Project Freelance

    • Careers

Crazy fans attacking artists, coping with the mental strain of being away from home for months at a time, struggling to make a living, the the love for travel, music, and unforgettable memories that sitting behind a desk doesn't offer; these are some of the aspects of living the...#tourlife. This episode features the oh-so-buff Matt Yanni. Yanni has been touring since 2011 as bodyguard and security director for different artists and tours. He’s been in the security world since 2007. He’s traveled all over the world protecting some of the biggest names in the business, including black veil brides, black bear, Andy black, and previously, the Steelers football team. In episode 17 of Project Freelance, Yanni and I discuss what it's like to be not only on tour with a band, but to be their protector from not only crazy fans, but also people who would potentially try to harm or harass his clients. However, Yanni has been working with Andy Black and Black Veil Brides since 2011, so he has learned how to balance protecting with being respectful of his clients' space. We talk about everything from crazy fan stories to the challenges with touring non stop, touring overseas, and basically being dropped into a war zone, otherwise known as Warped Tour. If you want to hear how to tour successfully, full time, travel the world, or if you're curious about how it really is to live life on the road, check this episode out. From overly excited, screaming fans to fights with people, Yanni has seen just about everything that the touring world has to...offer.   Thank you so much for your time and for sharing your unforgettable stories. I'll see you side stage with your tobacco cup and silly faces.  You can catch Yanni out with Black Veil Brides and Blackbear this year! Feel free to pick his brain! If you'd like to keep up with him, please please do!  Get socialistic with Yanni:http://Twitter.com/mryanni89 http://Instagram.com/mryanni10Podcast Mentions: Alternative Press MagazineAndy BlackBlack Veil BridesBlackbearFor classes/booking: http://justtheletterk.com/booking Read on to support the podcast!Get Socialistic with me: PUBLIC FACEBOOK GROUP:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/213571199185683/learning_content/ http://Twitter.com/projectfreelnce 🚴Come chase me: http://Instagram.com/projectfreelance My Music: http://Chasingsatellitesmusic.bandcamp.com 📸🖨Photo prints: http://justtheletterk.com/prints These are a few of my favorite things: For Photo/Film:Deals on Adobe Products: http://goo.gl/v35dPQ My FavoritePhoto Contest Sites: Viewbug http://goo.gl/pH2Vpq (free photography ebook upon signup)Gurushots: http://goo.gl/MtgWhK (Free bundle upon signup)Grow Your Youtube SEO: https://www.tubebuddy.com/ProjectFreelance For Adulting :pCrypto Currency - Coinbase - https://bit.ly/2Mc0iUy | get $10 of free Bitcoin when you buy or sell at least $100 of digital currency - Track Your Mileage with MileIQ: https://bit.ly/2MvMTnv -My 2019 KIT for Filmmaking, Photography & Vlogs:My Drone: https://amzn.to/2KXtsWhHandheld Stabilized camera: https://amzn.to/2KVBQ8MMain Vlog Camera: https://amzn.to/33YttjXWide Angle Lens: https://amzn.to/2HmJ4QMPretty art lens: https://amzn.to/2HGxwZ13 legged tripod: https://amzn.to/322EGhKPortable Solar Charger: https://amzn.to/348KfNEMagic Backpack: https://amzn.to/340OCu7Storage: https://amzn.to/2ZmaCA9Rode video mic: https://amzn.to/2zl2zonSkullcandy Headphones: https://amzn.to/2ZtmGLGMy audio recording setup: https://amzn.to/2zoiEJX-
