    Default Shopping for Management

    I was wondering what the best way to go about this is. I assume i should submit a couple demos, flyers, and a bio as well as a nice cover letter. Anything else that should go in the submission package?

    only look at getting a manager if you are unable to keep up with you own schedule. if your ready for a manager, you probably already know them, in my opinion.

    You have no idea how spot on you are with this one. I met a guy a bit ago who i've been hanging out with, who has been showing me the ropes, introducing me to people in the local dnb scene, as well as just hanging out as friends and he seemed to be a little more pro than your avg club hopper or dj just from the sheer amount of contacts he has. I find out today, that he's a manager and he asked me if he could represent me. I had my stipulations and he agreed so we've agreed to do business together. w00t!

    That good to hear Wil, what usually happens when you have a mngr is they ask you what you want to get paid for gigs and they tack on there fee on top. Lets say $100 (Wil) + $20 (Mngr) = $120.

    Maybe you should invest in some dj business cards.
