How to Tour 101- Wild Abandon Touring
Not for the faint of heart, or for those who have serious day jobs or family commitments, Wild Abandon Touring is just that. Sol Driven Train is a great example of Wild Abandon Touring.
Since it’s inception, the guys in Sol Driven Train have traveled constantly and consistantly, only taking 4-6 weeks off a year. Because they have traveled extensively for so long, there is nary a niche in the country that doesn’t know of them. These niches are super supportive, providing the guys with domiciles that serve as tour bases. There are always fans and friends and family providing a hot meal, a floor or sofa to crash upon and fun for the guys as they’re traveling.
This sort of touring requires a strong and flexible attitude and something the French refer to as a joie de vivre or the ability to cheerfully live life and play music.
Sol Driven Train has expanded their huge musical repertoire to include shows for children and in addition to clubs, bars and venues, also perform at festivals, special events, schools and museums.
Wild Abandon Touring means rarely turning down any opportunity to build fans and market value anywhere, anyplace and anytime.
