So many things in life have to have a strong foundation. Starting a band demands that if you are gonna sustain a career in music, you must have a strong foundation. Talent in your band, good songs, a brand, keep making it fun, and keep fans updated with interesting material.
Reverb Nation is an awesome site for this. Hypocrit warning: i am not good at this YET. Yet is the key word :)
Hopefully this blog entry is the start of a lot of efficient entertaining blogging :)
