    Sponsorship Masterclass with Mike Schulte

    DO NOT skip this one! Our special guest this week is our numero uno amigo Mike Schulte of the Cedar Rapids, IA mega-band The Pork Tornadoes. One thing we've noticed about Pork T's event is, there always seems to be a little roster of corporations all lined up to give money or other goodies in return for promo. How do you hook that up? What's it worth? What can it provide you? Mike's the MAN to break all that down. Adam and Dan left this conversation with their ears ringing, and you will too!And you can join the private back-channel Slack for only $5 a month at https://www.patreon.com/coverbandconfidential . Price of a cuppa coffee! The conversations are priceless! You know you wanna!

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
