Most of us that play in cover bands have also played, or currently play, in an original band as well. For a lot of us, the bands may be one in the same.

Now we have a healthy following and on a nightly basis get requests for specific original songs (not including our wives/girlfriend). That’s pretty cool! Here are a few quick tips on how you can start promoting original music at a cover.
