Saving Money While In A Band
Being in a band can be a horizon-broadening adventure, but the chances of it bringing in substantial revenue, particularly when you’re just starting out, are slim. Here we look at some interesting ways to keep a handle on your finances while experiencing the highs and lows of band life.
In this recent post on MusicThinkTank, contributor M Banks offers some clever tips for not breaking the bank while on tour with your band.
“While on tour, it may be difficult to make your own meals, especially if you’re on the road a lot. Moreover, after a successful show, it may be tempting to spend your money on drinks at the venue or a night on the town. If you want to save money, eating out and partying all night aren’t going to help. Instead, head to the local grocery store to pick up snacks, foods and beverages.”
