Music This Week July 4th thru July 10th Happy 4th and Important news!


 Hey there,

                   Happy 4th of July!!!       Happy birthday Momma!!!
              Important news!!!  Live Music Athens GA is now hiring!!!
We are hiring general managers, web site designers, sales and marketing managers, booking agents, recording engineers and studios.  Really were looking for anybody that can help us take this business model to the next level.  BTW another important note.  I never said we were paying anyone we hire!  The good news is you’ll be starting out at exactly the same salary as I am, nothing!  I will however structure everything so that when the money does start coming in, you’ll be the first one paid, whoever you are! Please contact me ASAP.
You’ll notice that the music archive is under construction. that is because I felt the music was too exposed on the Internet, too much of it in an one small place and I am trying to protect the musicians rights to the music. What I am going to do is to have a system where you’ll have to be registered user to download the music  but anyone on the e-mail list now will automatically be a registered user. I just have to figure out how to do this.  The next step will be to put the music in a new archive with each show divided into individual songs or tunes and labeled with the correct name and tags.  This is where I’m going to need the bands help to start with.  It can be something as simple as telling me the start and end times of a particular song and a song name .I will only have time to cut this music into individual songs and post name I will not have time to do anything else with it. If you have time to edit post as well, that would save me a tremendous amount of work.. It will actually be a first-come first-served basis. If you have the ability to upload the music let me know and I’ll get the originals to you. You  do the editing and uploading. One of things that will be associated with your page with all of your music will be atip jar with all money going to you. Hopefully  instead of just using it for beer money use it to  buy more equipment or even to fund a CD project whatever. You should soon start to reap the benefits, because instead of having a few people around Athens supporting you, you are  going to be in front of millions of people worldwide. That’s what this is about, the synergy we can all bring together in our community, that is what is going to drive this. I will be able to get you on FM radio, I will be able to get you on Internet radio so please get in contact with me. If you are a member of a band please have these discussions with me.  We need to get some sort of legal protection for your music incorporated into this business. By now you should know I am a man of my word. Your word is something that is that sacred, it is something that is very rare, something that you can give but you have to keep at the same time so it’s something that I’ve taken very seriously and when I give you my word that is stronger than any cadre of lawyers would ever be. But there is going to be other people involved and there is other businesses involved so we need to put protection for your rights as a musician in place.It doesn’t matter if we go online with Internet radios or with a over the air radio or my website  I just want things in place to protect the musicians rights and I’m again going to need people’s help with that so if anybody knows how do this, what to do with this, where I need to get the paperwork or someone that can put together the paperwork, whatever, please contact me as soon as possible.
Another thing I will be doing for bands is getting together with them and getting them the original material from my recordings I’ve made  of their various shows and let them cut into select songs from the different shows and create their own live CD which we will put online for sale.
I haven’t even begun to talk about marketing strategies that is for a future e-mail.
The sooner I can find people to start filling in some of the  job positions and start working taking the workload off me the quicker I can get involved in taking another step forward.
I think the next step should be to pick a time and place for as many of the bands as possible to sit down together with me and have a round table discussion as to the best way to proceed. Please let me know what you think about this and when and where it would be convenient to meet.
