So I have noticed that a fair few of us have residencies on this board, including myself, but that not everyone gets a lot of out of state gigs, and have known a lot of guys that talent swap with friend in other cities.
Whats a gig swap?
A gig swap is when you bring in someone who is a local in another city, usually on their own dime to headline your residency, and they in turn bring you to play at their residency also on your dime.
Whats in it for me?
Playing new gigs in different cities gets your name out there, and can be great experience by getting to perform in front of a crowd that would very likely never get to see you otherwise.
So any interest in something like this? Lots of very talented guys on here, and it could be a good way for people to get their name out there in a market thats out of their regional scope.
About my residency: I play 9pm to 4am every friday at a nightclub/strip club in downtown denver. We have me on stage djing, and the girls on a couple stages. Our format is whatever gets the crowd moving, but nothing too hardcore. For example, I usuallly play a few hours of minimal then move into tech house then more housey stuff then either some more banging tech house or electro house or top 40 electro house remixes throw in.
Edit: the headlining slot would be from 2-4, as thats when we are packed.
