Live Music- & Event- Production and Tour Management
About: Since putting on a first show in 1981, I never stopped working in and for the music, from putting on club shows, promoting and booking international tours, running a club, being a musician (no worries, not a frustrated has-been, though ), doing production work at festivals, I guess I know each and every side of the business. This enables me to work in full respect towards everyone in all fields on the way.
I tourmanage artists from small club shows via theatres to arenas, and/ or also do the production for these. From budgeting a tour, via travel and accommodation logistics to actual tour and/or production management on the road, plus transparent accounting during and after the tour. I like to put things open, at a highest quality standard . Artists trust me, managements, agents and labels trust me the same.
Tan U Sound can be the work of a single person doing the job, but can also supply complete and fully qualified crews if needed in sound design, light design, rigging, backline, drivers, merchandisers, caterers. I know guitars, strings, grand pianos, toured whole classical orchestras, rock bands and seminal electro artists. Artists and management should carefully chose who to take out on tour, so am I. Chemistry between the involved is a priority as we might spend quite some time together under the closest environment and conditions. I am loyal, trustworthy and honest. So if we like what each others do, your next tour can be the most prolific you can think of. Oh yes, I can be fun, too.
