Abstract

Gigging musicians will exhaust their resources to get more audience members and music lovers at their show and active on their social media outlets. I will be conducting a survey in the Tri-State area to discover how local gigging musicians utilize social media to promote themselves and their shows. I hope to uncover what varying local musicians have found most useful in the age of social media. In doing so, local musicians and gigging musicians in smaller music scenes across the United States will be able to benefit in their promotions from my study.
