A Guide for Performers and Presenters to Navigating a Successful Event.
It contains essential advice that will be extremely useful for any performer or independent concert presenter.

This means taking control of all aspects of the touring business and having a system in place that will greatly increase your proficiency to make it work.

Both performers and presenters can follow the guidelines in this book and work together and make the most of every opportunity.
