Book Your Band- Step 8


8. Make sure band members are healthy and in good working order. Physically and mentally. I’m not kidding. Be sure you know if band members are on any sort of medication for physical or mental illness. I’ve had bands get in the van for a month long cross country tour, only to have a member bail four days in because they simply cannot cope on the road physically or mentally. Or they’ve run out of medication. Or their medication is not working. Or a pre-existing illness has surfaced. Plan three day tours and work your way up to longer stretches. While being on the road looks like fun and sounds like fun, it is stressful. Not everyone is cut out for long haul or even short haul touring.
