After procrastinating for what seemed like forever, I finally got up off of my ass and put up the FIGJAM website/blog online.
It’s an attempt to realise another one of my musical goals for 2011 of expanding my live music opportunities for FIGJAM by updating the promotional material and making more of an effort to chase up work for the Duo/Band.
What has also taken a long time to work out is how FIGJAM is going to be promoted. Do I promote it as a band that can scale down to a duo or, as a duo that can scale up to a band?
Now, this may sound trivial but it’s not when you consider that promoting a duo is different to promoting a band and therefore I need to work out how I’m going to spend my non-existent promotional budget.
the way I see it is that co-ordinating Darren and myself for gigs is easy but if I went down the path of promoting a band I have to take other members and their commitments into consideration and in the past that has been my number one challenge (and for most of the time, a headache).
So, in light of all that, FIGJAM is a duo that can expand into a band if need be.
