The artist cooperative booking list is simply a list of venues that individual artists recommend, having played there themselves. The purpose is to have an easily-used list of contacts around the country (or world, for that matter) where artist members can access names and contact information to be used when setting up a tour outside their geographic area. For this to work, a few rules need to be followed. To post or use the co-op, you must be registered as well as an approved user. To be an approved user, you must be recommended by another member artist or member venue.
There’s also a list for artists looking to build a tour outside of their geographical area. Please look at this from time to time. There may be an artists that you can help with a venue in your area that will make a break a tour. This is hopefully a true co-operative, where everyone helps everyone else.
In the future, I’d like to establish a forum, but we’ll see how this goes.
