Killer Knowledge!

As someone who’s brand new to managing a band, this podcast is filled with insight and priceless knowledge from a couple of heavy hitters in this industry. The fact that this much advice is given away for free is gloriously mind-blowing! Thanks Blasko and Mike! I’m learning so much! Keep up the solid work! 🤘
