    CBC #084 (Set List Doctor, 90's Edition)

    Another episode, another Adam rant--this time the insanity of thinking the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, like, OWES you something.

    Then the meat: Set list design! Dan lays out his W theory of set lists, and we walk through a couple user-submitted ones.

    CBC #083 (So you want to start a karaoke band!)

    The boys open the new year hot, with a classic CBC-style rant about online discourse, social media, and shutting the eff up about politics. Then we cool things down with a thorough how-to on Live Karaoke. If you've ever thought about adding audience participation elements to your show, you'll want to check this out!

    CBC #082 (The Airing of the Neuroses)

    What would the last CBC episode of 2019 be without a trip in to the dark, dark psyches of your illustrious hosts? We've managed to stay out of there in recent times, but... well here we go. First Adam deals with the fallout of a less-than-ideal night, then Dan considers his momentary lack of smoothness with inconsiderate karaokeists.

    CBC #081 (Buy A Tuba, and other advice for Getting More Gigs)

    Our boys are back in the pocket for another good one. A heaping helping of meaty meatballs followed by a spirited chat on how to be maximally marketable as a gigging musician.

    CBC #080 (Marketing as Storytelling; Facebook Done Right; Egg Nog)

    This episode: Marketing as storytelling, the power of scarcity, how to do Facebook right, and a three-generation-old egg nog recipe. Schedules couldn't align this week... but the stars could! Because Mike Schulte of The Pork Tornadoes was able to come guest-cohost with Dan while Adam was off dealing with, like, whatever, okay? Stuff, man. Geez.

    CBC #079 (Meatballs! Gear, gripes, promos, and general crotchetyness.)

    Our two Highly Prepared and Professional Podcasters embark on a taut, focused discussion and largely fail to get there. Some gear news (including first thoughts on the Fender American Acoustasonic Telecaster), some complaints about the Way Things Are, and some updates and promo ideas. Mostly just a darn good chat.

People with bands

Listen to this podcast. Real people in real bands with real issues. Lots of tips on how to move through the issues that are fairly common in all entertainment situations.
These fellas do a great job.
Keep up the good work, guys!

Rhino615 ,

Wonderful advice and tips from two cool dudes(who never met each other!)

These guys know what they’re talking about. They speak from experience as they are both musicians in cover bands who are gigging regularly.

Each week they consistently talk at length about their gigs over the past weekend, gear they use, advice to help make your band better, and life in general all with a great sense of humor. They answer every question on air I have ever asked them with well thought out answers that really help.

If you’re looking for advice about being in a cover band, original band, solo act, or any business for that matter this is the podcast for you.

Phil S. (The 90's Band) ,

If you’re a band leader, then this is a must-listen!

As a band leader I have to say, this is the best resource I’ve found for inspiration and valuable information. Adam and Dan are great hosts who are knowledgeable, passionate, and experienced. Well done!
