I’m recommending the three night Ronnie Scott’s Kind of Blue/Giant Steps nights next week.
But here’s something different. An interesting marketing initiative from Abram Wilson and Dune Music: volunteers for his Official Street Team. (The picture is completely unrelated, an Official Wilson-NCAA Street Ball). Read on for the full blurb:
In conjunction with Abram’s forthcoming album, Life Paintings, Abram Wilson is setting up an official Street Team… and you can be a part of it.
We are looking for proactive and enthusiastic fans to work with Abram Wilson and the Dune Music Team to help market his new album and tour, Life Paintings. In return you’ll get the opportunity to win signed CD’s, exclusive merchandise, free tickets to Abram’s UK tour, and the chance to hang with the artists backstage.
As a member of the Street Team your responsibilities will include bringing people to the gigs, spreading the word about Abram Wilson’s work, creating a buzz on forums and social networking sites, as well as using your skills and initiatives on specific agreed projects.
To apply, email a short paragraph about yourself outlining why you would be an asset to the team including any skills and interests you have to: email@example.com (Deadline 28th August).
