    Musician Monday- How to handle online hate both internally and publicly

    Musician Monday- How to handle online hate both internally and publicly

    This week's #musicianmonday post is a story about someone leaving a crappy review of my band and what I did to get past it and move on.  As you get opportunities to play bigger shows or municipal events, you may experience folks who aren't stoked on your group because they didn't have to pay for it and weren't necessarily there to see you.  This is how you should respond to those.Thank you so much for tuning in!  If you want to help be sure to like, subscribe and share with your friends!  Linktree: linktr.ee/adampatrickjohnsonFollow us on Instagram!@coverbandconfidential@adampatrickjohnsonIf you have any questions please email at:Coverbandconfidential@gmail.comConsider supporting me on Patreon! www.patreon.com/coverbandconfidentialOr buy me a cup of coffee!paypal.me/cbconfidentialAnd for more info check out www.coverbandconfidential.com

Top notch!

I am a regular, avid listener. These guys know their stuff and the content is both entertaining and informative. If you’re a cover band musician this podcast is a must listen.

A Great Resource

Whether you need to be challenged, need direction, encouragement, or a different perspective, this podcast is a great resource for the working musician.

Dan and Adam approach the content with a wealth of professional experience, but also a sense of humor, humility, and openness to other perspectives.

Glad they are developing an generous and positive community of cover bands and musicians.

Rob Sharp of the Jukebox BOOMers.

A must listen if you’re a working musician

Adam and Dan have done an amazing job shining light upon the working band business. If you’re a band leader or just want to be a better band member listen to this podcast. I would start at the first episode and work your way to the current stuff. These guys are genuine and have great advice for original and cover bands and even small business looking to enhance their product. Keep rocking Adam and let that hair flow Dan.
Cheers,
-Matt Nielson
