Rule 29-Love tapers….
*Encourage taping and tapers. Think of it. A person is coming to your show, setting up a bunch of expensive recording equipment and microphones to record your show and essentially they give you a copy for free. They also post shows to sites. They can drive a word of mouth campaign. Peeking the interest of tapers is a feat in itself. Always encourage these folks and make it your mission to understand what they do and how it benefits the band.
