Booking takes dedication to the craft. You need to know what is best for the band and artist as well as what is best for the venue/festival. Experienced in booking and recommending acts for festivals such as Gardenia, Tip of the Mitt, The Ark's Folk Festival; as well as venues including Chelsea Alehouse Brewery, Cultivate Coffee & Tap House, The Ark, and The Graduate-Ann Arbor, as well as a number of locally-based bands, I can pull some things together for you.
Let me do the work for you.

Social Media Coordination
monthly, quarterly, annual rates available
You can either love or hate social media. For some, it can be considered a "necessary evil" when you're trying to get the word out, expand your business, and connect with people. I actually love social media and its ability to sometimes improve how people interact and connect, but you must remember, you must always find a way for an honest and genuine connection with people; that's imperative.
The biggest thing I strive to do in posts for clients is create something genuine based upon their mission and objectives. It's a joy to do, and it something I can do for you.
I currently work with The Ark in Ann Arbor in helping with social media marketing/coordination and scouting for new musicians to bring into the space; but also provide coordination for Cultivate Coffee & Tap House; The Ragbirds, The Understorey, and Chelsea Alehouse Brewery (to name a few).
hourly rates only
Publicity can be a tricky, frustrating, and tedious process. As a musician, it can be strange to "sell yourself"; talking yourself up seems a bit conceited and can put people off. I understand this and have told my clients, "I work in the tedium". It can be a long arduous process, and sometimes you just want to focus on writing and performing your art, so....
Let me deal in the tedium for you.
