How to tour WITHOUT getting in the van

50 Ways to Tour Without Getting in the Van is for sale at

“Tammy plays music, loves music, writes music, gets music,
respects the process of being in a band, likes people and
represents anybody with dignity and respect.
She’s above and beyond the game and the posturing sideshow
that is called the “music business”,
yet she remains a light in the midst of it all. Everyone I have ever
worked with had only good things to say
about Tammy Brackett and that says everything.”
Jeff Mosier, Blueground Undergrass

“For an unsigned band, just getting people to listen can feel like an
insurmountable hurdle. Brackett’s book suggests a radically different
approach from the classic (and increasingly expensive) formula of
tour, tour, and tour again, instead offering a host of fun and easy
ideas to get your songs heard, never for more than the cost of a free
CD. If a band follows just a few of her fifty innovative tips (and
their music is solid), they’ll be well on their way to building a
loyal audience.” —Stratton Lawrence, Charleston City Paper, April 2008

“Tammy Brackett’s new book Fifty Ways To Tour Without Getting In The Van
is a great resource for bands just getting started with little money to spend for gas
and hotels. Brackett is someone who has first-hand knowledge of how to get it done
using today’s many resources and eloquently puts it into a neat primer that is a must-have
 for any band that wants to get their music without without going deeply into debt!”
 – Wildman Steve, Owner & Program Director WildmanSteve Radio

“The booklet “50 Ways To Tour Without Getting In The Van” is such a boon to
musicians who are enthusiastic to promote their band but unsure of all the best avenues
in the new media economy. Where I often suggest to bands who play on my radio show to
“keep up with the modern times” on social websites, now I’m going to
recommend the booklet 50 Ways To Tour Without Getting In The Van. This booklet
explains how to do it from every angle, and why. The benefits to bands are clear. This book
 is not magic recipes or big secrets, but it is real-world
suggestions that make sense. It’s organized clearly so you can make your own
band-strategy and check-off which of the 50 points you want to try. Tammy has actually
done all these things, so the book is street-smart. Choose just 10
of the points in this book and you can go On Tour, gain fans and get your art out to
 the public without burning any gasoline money. Tammy is a music fan, so this booklet conveys
 enthusiasm and excitement. Reading the 50 Ways, I was excited to try so many ideas.
Thanks Tammy!!”
