Select a proper venue.
Organizers should look for bars that have a good record, and avoid bars that want advance payments or have unfair policies. The best bars in Manila belong to people who would rather choose good reputation over profit. The owners of these bars are a very friendly bunch, so there isnít much of a problem in approaching them. The organizer and the bar owners must agree on a set of policies so that there will be no post-gig squabbles and complications.

Enforce a strict schedule.
Having a production requires at least a month of planning. The lineup must be finalized at least a week and a half before the event so that advertising materials can be produced and posted, and the bands must be simultaneously asked about their preferred time to perform days prior to the event so that the timeslots can be finalized. There must be a proper call time for bands so each can be available in case a band gets late. Those who get late must be moved to the last spot, even if they're  a mainstream band. Equality and diplomacy must be strictly enforced.

Have a healthy mix of bands.
Organizers should aim for an equal ratio of amateur and mainstream bands. It may cost an arm to ask for mainstream bands to play, but it will be worth it due to the following reasons: there will be a proper audience who would want to see these bands play, the organizerís connections in the music scene will expand, and the productionís overall reputation will become more positive.

An equal number of amateur bands must be given an opportunity to play with these mainstream acts. If given such an opportunity, these bands would take initiative to invite their peers to watch them in such a high-quality gig, rather than be forced to sell tickets. It will be an advantage for both the organizer and the bands. However, organizers must only let the best amateur bands play in the gig, so that other aspiring bands will keep on playing better. They must only be allowed join the event once they present a decent set/demo.

The best number of bands in a lineup is four to six, so that each band may have more exposure time and can play more songs. Lineups exceeding eight bands usually have lineup shuffling, managers complaining, and amateur bands getting disappointed.

An organizer shouldnít patronize the same bands every other gig, though he can sneak his own band in often.

Aim for good production policies.
Exposure, both for the production and the band, is always the goal. As a rule, the more an organizer produces a great show, the bigger money he earns. The organizer must keep a higher goal so he can run the show even without having monetary gain in the short run. A production must be professional enough to prevent favoritism.

These steps are the basis for the bimonthly productions that I have established for the past couple of years. I do hope you'd follow these steps too, so you can take part in helping the scene progress further.

See you at the next gig.

wow ganda ng thread na ito ah

anyway, if planning to build up a production, i would suggest it would benefit both parties (the bands and the production). Then make certain rules and regulations so the bands would understand the terms and conditions on the production you have created. If they don't agree, don't force them and look for bands who are interested. Much better if the production and the bands would have a signed agreement (just incase something happens).

Mas maganda if no ticket selling talaga. Pag pera kasi pinag usapan, minsan iba ang naiisip, nagkakaroon ng contradictions. and some bands will fell being used. Mas maganda kung transparent.

In MUSIC ZONE's case, we are tied up with our foreign counterparts. We also an event services team in w/c we provide set ups (lights, sounds, and band eqpts) to our clients. So if ever we got a project (let's say a concert for a cause), we have regular bands to play as front act bands before the main band (usually a known recording band). Then to our foreign counterparts, kapag may international event and the host country is Philippines, our regular line up bands will be there to take part. Usually kasi we don't make regular gigs for bands (coz bars usually ask for fees when you set up a production to their establishments w/c forces to ticket selling). wla masama in ticket selling actually but depends on what purpose yun. So we tried na lang kapag may event kami (like concerts), dun na lang sila mag play. At least lots of people will able to get watch the bands, at nakatulong pa ang lahat. All beneficial to both production and bands as well. nasa pag uusap naman yan eh.

And if we have clients for private events (like company parties), our bands gets paid also.

You can also check Music Zone website @ www.musiczonephil.cjb.net and you will see the last event we had done (last october 30 @ Hard Rock Cafe. just check under NEWS)

I hope my share of knowledge would benefit others.

hay kay hirap nga naman magpromote ng own or original music mo.. buti na lang di ko pa nararanasan to kasi matagal talaga ako nag-show band and acoustic..and luckly kumita din talaga ako kahit paano nung mga panahon na yun.. but now, mukhang dito ako malilinya sa mga prods dahil may sarili na akong music.hehehe..

pero depende pa din talaga..gusto ko din maexperience na makikipagsiksikan ka sa mga bands para makatugtog ka lang ng 3 to 4 songs..hehehe..

i heard pa nga sa mga some productions na required pa ang band niyo na magbayad para makatugtog..hehehe..ewan ko pero ang prod eh magiging succesful talaga with proper strategies, advertisement, network, and marketing..

even if a small prod or a large concert like yung concert ni beyonce here sa pinas, talagang hit talaga siya..i think applicable din yan sa maliliit na prods..

pero hanga talaga ako sa passion ng mga musikero na tumutugtog sa prods..talagang malaki ang puso nila.. biruin mo minsan magbabayad pa sila tapos maghihintay ng matagal bago makatugtog pagtapos mga 3 songs lang tapos na..walang talent fee,walang pagkain, pagod, gastos sa pamasahe sa rehearsal, gastos sa rehearsal studio at transpo..pero at the end of the gig, they are all happy and satisfied coz their passion drives them.. its all about music..
