Live Dates

Good idea raspberrywine - just make sure it's in November or later - I'm going on vacation in October and I do NOT want to MISS THIS! And if that doesn't work, there is the Ruth Eckerd Hall in Tampa and the Van Wezel in Sarasota - that would be just right for them! There are a lot of smaller venues that would LOVE to have the band play.

If the timing isn't at least close to being right, it never will be. Extremely positive reviews and famous liner notes can be used for promotion, actual new merchandise to sell, a LIVE dvd even.

HOB circuit, local radio promo interviews, and for god sakes, with these reviews and Springtsteens endorsement can't anyone get them booked on a late night national talk show?

To quote Eric, as I think I remember hearing that he said at one point before the initial reunion, "If not now, *when*?" As usual, he succinctly summed up the whole situation and was right on the button.

Got into a bit of a discussion w/ Gail on the way

up to WAB about this. The "If not now, *when*?" thing falls into the category of what I call the 'old-age rocking-chair litmus test'. You don't want to be in that rocking chair looking back wishing you'd have done this or that. You want to have good memories and few regrets! Don't leave anything on the table --- blow it out --- go full tilt baby!! Just my humble view!! :lol:

Our grass roots marketing efforts apply to the club circuit also - feel free to call your HOB - type facilities (1000 seat venues), get the name of the talent buyers and let 'em know there is demand for a Raspberries show. The talent buyers at the clubs will let the promoters and agents know there is a demand, and that will only help our cause to get the band out to play some shows!

That's a superb idea, Al! Why don't we organize ourselves by region, make up a master list of possible venues, and then split the calls - it sure would be more organized and focused than each one of us pursuing this on our own. We could forward the list on to you, if that would help.

How about it???!

I e-mailed a friend of mine today who is the Entertainment Manager for the Northern Lights Theatre here in Milwaukee. This Theatre is the perfect size, has great acoustics, and would be a perfect addition to a Raspberries Mid-West swing! I offered to lend him my new DVD of "Live On Sunset Strip" if he needs to see for himself how fantastic they are live!
