about/read me!

Aside from writing, playing and performing music I’ve always had an eye and interest for the logistical side of things.  Trying to manage, book and promote your band all while being apart of the band can be a very draining process, but! I’m glad I’ve paid attention, collected contacts and learned how this wonderfully tough music business works.  I’ve booked three two week tours for Toy Soldiers (two southeast and one northeast), and am working on the fourth now.  I won’t say that all of these have been a blowout success, but with each great show and each disastrous travel mishap there’s a lot to be learned about being a musician, and a traveling one at that.

That being said, I decided to start my own booking and promotions group (i don’t want to use the word company yet).

The goal, in the beginning, will be to help out starting bands, friends and other local bands in Philadelphia and surrounding areas to build something in their hometown as well as expand outwards and see the country, all while playing music.  I remember starting a band in a vast city and being completely clueless on where to go, so this is my way of giving back and helping out bands I have faith in.

I’m someone who loves to really get behind things that I believe in, so my only preference in artists is that I need to believe in what you’re doing.

So! now that you know what’s happening here please e-mail me at ronjamesgallo@gmail.com anytime with the following information:

Band name, show history, links to any websites you want me to see, where you want to go and when you want to go there.

Looking forward to working with you!

Ron Gallo
