I was wondering if anyone else uses business cards of themselves to land gigs? I live in what you would call "rural America". Heck, the villiage I live in is so small that we have to use the next town's name and post office, so this isnt a real "hotbed" for freelance trumpet players. I even printed and made them on my computer, and I'm gonna slap them up all over town to see if anything happens. Unfortunatly,there arent any bigger cities that are close to me.There are a couple community bands here, but their peak season is over until next summer, and there's a local jazz band that doesnt have a trumpet player, but I dont even know if they want one. I just want to play more!!!! I;d like to hear some input!!
