Band Together

Like it or not, music is a business.

We’d love a world that consistently rewarded bands just for their music. Sadly, that’s not always the case. Talent alone isn’t enough. But, combine your music skills with our business smarts, and that’s a recipe for success.

We’d love a world that consistently rewarded bands just for their music. Sadly, that’s not always the case. Talent alone isn’t enough. But, combine your music skills with our business smarts, and that’s a recipe for success.

We provide a roadmap for making it.

If you want to make it, you need a strategy. That’s where we come in. At Bootstrap Bands, we help you navigate the hard business decisions that hold musicians back. Planning. Marketing. Finances. It’s all that tedious (but super valuable) real-world stuff. Use it wisely, and you could leap from local act to the next big thing.

Don’t let questions hold you back.

The path to prominence is weird and confusing. So many questions. We wish it were simple. You know, like it is in the movies: Make a song. Play a show. Impress a famous recording dude in the back of the bar. Sign to a label. Become famous. Become famous-er. Repeat. Alas, that’s not (exactly) how it works. But we can help you answer the hard questions. And push you closer to your dreams.

Business is our jam.

We’re business experts. That’s what we do best. And for years now, we’ve used that expertise to help businesses—just like you. We start by defining where you are as a business. Then we show you ways to get better. Next, we hook you up with the tools you need to stand out—and start making money. Where you take it from there is up to you.

Already selling out stadiums?

Sorry. Can’t help.

We’d love to work with you, Mr. Megastar. But the reality is, you’re probably too big for us. On the other hand, we also can’t help Uncle Murph and his half-broken harmonica. Too small. But if you’re serious about your music, and fall somewhere in between, good news: you can probably benefit from our services.

Bootstrap Bands has been so helpful for me and my business! In the past, I’ve often focused mainly on performing and writing, while really not having much idea of how to make money or thrive as a musician. The toolkits are extremely useful and have gotten me researching and thinking about marketing/business/audience/revenue in ways that hadn’t even crossed my mind before. I also think they can be used continuously to reevaluate your business as it grows. Also, Pallavi has been exceedingly communicative, accommodating, flexible, patient, and professional throughout this whole process. I highly recommend Bootstrap Bands for anyone who is trying to take their business to the next level or for those who just have no idea how to get started. Thank you, Bootstrap Bands!

It may not seem this way at first, but starting a band is no different than starting a business. A successful band is much more than writing, rehearsing, and performing your songs. Eventually road blocks that have nothing to do with the quality of your art start popping up that prevent you from reaching the next level. With the help of an organization like Bootstrap Bands, you can feel confident that your band will have a solid business foundation, freeing up your mind to create the music…because at the end of the day, that’s what we’re all here to do.
