Bands As Enterprise – Do It Together

With record deals less frequently offered and decreasing advances on the table when they are, how can unknown bands develop and build an infrastructure around themselves to increase their profile in an ever competitive market place.

Is there the place for bands to give up the day job and make a basic living from their music? What new models are bands using to develop strategies for themselves?
