NEWS: The Haverbrook Disaster called it a day

That’s it for now. The Haverbrook Disaster played their final show in Bruchsal last Friday surrounded by their friends and yearlong supporters. The last show impressively proved what a great band THD were and how many hearts and souls they touched with their music. Having started at very young age it was exciting to see them grow hand in hand with their audience over the years. Splitting up at this point was just the right time to not become a farce of themselves and cleared the way for something new that will engross both, the band themselves and their fans.

BLOG: Who needs a band manager, anyway?!

There’s hardly any other professional field that has to cope with such harsh and insistent prejudices. But the worst thing about it is, that it’s for a good reason. Some of the most incapable, sketchy and ignorant people in the whole music industry call themselves “artist managers”. So why would any band want to hire one?

Here’s a few reasons how a good (!) artist manager can help you accelarate your band career and act out your artistic freedom:

  • Knowledge and network: The most obvious reason to start working with an artist management company is their experience and contacts in the music scene. Although these requirements seem to be most essential, they do not automatically lead to good management. It is the “how” that counts most and which is the fall of most managers.
  • Guidance: A good manager will be able to set up a general plan of what could, will and must happen within the next weeks, months and years. Deriving from such a plan he will be able to wisely define neccessary work packages & to dos and split them between him and your band.
  • Decision making: A good manager knows your internal decision making processes very well and can prevent you from making the wrong ones. He can show you up all aspects of a topic, give you an outside (point of) view on the things you discuss and - if neccesary - can do the straight talk to get you back on earth.
  • Safety: A good manager will be able to provide you a legal, financial and organizational safety by always having an overview over all business aspects of your band.
  • Learning: A good manager will always try to empower you as a band by teaching you how to handle certain aspects of your career. Only sketchy managers will try to lock away their knowledge from you.
  • Focus: A good manager will help you putting your focus on writing and performing music by taking over time-comsuming and nerv-racking tasks you will not have to worry about anymore.
  • Motivation: A good manager can be a great source of motivation. He’s capable to trigger your personal and artistic potential and get the most out of every band member, may it be creative or organizational things.
  • Fun: Last but not least it can be great fun to work with a “6th band member” if you find the right one. The music business might be a tough one but there’s still so many cool things you can do to make your band career an enjoyable journey instead of a boring fulfillment of a predetermined schedule.

Keep these aspects in mind when approaching or being approached by an artist manager about a possible cooperation. It will help you to distinguish between good managers and iditots.
