  • Job Title Help?

    Hey, guys!

    I've been working with a big band that is trying to get into more regular work than self-produced concerts, MPTF stuff, and so on. For whatever reason, I've been asked to come up with a job title for myself, and I haven't a clue what to suggest. Do you any you guys have any good ideas? Responsibilities include
    - Coordinating technical requirements with clients and venues
    - Communicating with prospective clients to share audio and video recordings of the band and press-quality images
    - Preparing said audio, video, photos from raw materials provided to me
    - Social media promotion
    - Live sound reinforcement (provide equipment, setup, tear down, mix)
    - Wash lighting

    I suggested "pianist" but they want something better. I guess so they can tell prospective clients, "Talk to this guy, he is our XXX".

    Thanks for any ideas,
    Do daemons dream of electric sleep()?

      How about "Overworked and underpaid guy?" Sounds like you get most of the duties other than producing music....

        I used to do a ton of MPTF gigs in the 70's&80's. We used to call them "green sheet" gigs as we had to sign "the" green sheet (MPTF form).
        Back to your question:

        Production Manager Plain and simple.

        The person who books your group (the Contractor) gets a call back from someone that is inquiring about booking your group; the potential client asks "what will you need as far as space, etc. is concerned"...

        The contractor's answer should be: "contact our Production Manager at ......."

        Totally pro.

        BTW: Does your group have a rider???
