David Greenberg shares tips from his experience as Director of Marketing for Ted Kurland Associates, a boutique booking and management agency where Berklee interns gain insight into a successful career in music and business.
When there are two or more people up for the job you want / need / desire, or the internship is with a highly prestigious place of work, like WME or UMG and they only take the “toppermost of the poppermost,” you need to do everything you can to make sure you are the person they hire, right?
That includes reading last weeks bloggette and taking most of it to heart. Especially the part about FZ, because you never know when you will meet one of us greying statesmen / stateswomen of the business who have a fondness for all things Zappa. Or you get hit with it as a pop reference in pop culture, like the kid in “Valentine’s Day” who uses FZ as a touchstone for being cool. Anyway, you need more music history in your back pocket, not less, if you want to succeed in making great music, or making your mark in this crazy business of entertainment.
