You Don’t Need A Label, Manager Or Big Money To Make It But You Do Need A Real Team
Ron Young the lead singer of Little Caesar posted this earlier this week and it hit me as a great inspirational post for all those musicians who think you need a label, a manager and big money to make it. In the 80s Little Caesar were signed to Geffen Records, that is the label mentioned below who would not give them the funds to get to Europe to perform at Donnington. Now they are a self-sustained and self-supported band… with the aid of a support team of people who believe in the band.
As Ron puts it, “…we have some amazing people that prop us up, inspire us, and bless us with their talent, energies and most priceless, their friendship!”
Do you have a team of people who you could say this about?
Go create a team of people who will help prop you up.
Little Caesar will be appearing at The Download Festival in Donnington Park, England on Sun Jun 16th…. over 60,000 people!! We are so excited!! But what strikes us most is a feeling of gratitude….20 years ago we were offered to play this same festival when it was called Monsters Of Rock. We had to turn it down because our label would not give us the funds to get there.
So today, with no label, or Manager or big money supporters…. we finally made it. We got there because we have some amazing people that prop us up, inspire us, and bless us with their talent, energies and most priceless, their friendship! People like Penny Rosen, Michael Brandvold, Alan Niven, Mitch Lafon, Bruce Witkin, Heather Harris, Scott Rowley, Dave Everley, Joey Malone, Ryan Dorn, Doug Dubin, Martin Jarvis, Manny Montana, Carmen Elekktra and Steve Waite, Jake Bradbury…to name a few.
They have helped us accomplish what we couldn’t do with a lot of powerful people behind us. What they all have in common is their passion for music and talent to bring music to others…. and Little Caesar and our fans are the beneficiaries of those talents.
When we hit that stage on Jun 16th…. you will all be there with us. Thanks to you all from the bottom of our hearts.
