RVing musicians find opportunities for paying gigs at campgrounds, theaters, music fests, and local entertainment venues. While some travel and play all year, others get together to play seasonally.
One of our website visitors, Linda L. writes, asking about this, "I am considering full time and am an entertainer, musician, and singer. Where and how would I find other entertainers that may be interested in forming a group? I have seen some ads, but I would like to run an article or ad, something to find and talk to others considering the same thing or who already full time and may consider me."
This is my resply:
Go where other RVing musicians gather.
The destination RV parks in the southern states would be good places to start. The parks often have jam sessions where musicians get together. They are a good source of networking, as well show casing your talents.
Music festivals are another place to meet other musicians and possibly have a chance to perform. There's one in late winter each year in Mercedes, Texas, that draws many RVers. I'm sure there are others in other parts of the country.
Summer campgrounds sponsor music fests, as do community arts programs. Participate, either as an entertainer, patron, or volunteer. The more of these venues you are involved with, the better your chances of connecting with others who share your vision.
As an entertainer, musician, and singer, you are probably tuned into where your friends and colleagues in the industry get together. Spend time at those places and take the initiative to visit with them. Let them know what you want to do.
You could also place ads in the same media where you've seen other RVing musicians advertise.
