"Democracy in live entertainment comes in the form of Indie On The Move!" - 360 Artists, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
We here at IOTM like to think of ourselves as the digital world's Mom and Pop shop for show and tour booking, and we do our absolute darndest to provide the best resources around for musicians/bands of all styles and accomplishments to get out there and play more shows.
Whether we're talking about attracting new fans, increasing music and merchandise sales, or even catching the eye of record labels, band managers, and other industry execs, the significance of live performance to a musician/band's career can never be overstated. It is THE tried and true method of sustenance and longevity, and the only definitive way to take your music, literally, "direct to fan".
So how did IndieOnTheMove.com start and what's it all about?
The concept behind the site really began as a community based rolodex of music venues, booking agent contacts, venue reviews, and tour-related resources, but since our launch in late 2008 we've grown into one of the strongest musician communities on the web with a ton of features expediting and enhancing the show and tour booking process.
Our membership model is both a DIY (do it yourself) and DIT (do it together) approach to booking, and based primarily on the idea that musicians working together, networking and supporting the "scene" on a collective basis, are typically more successful than those that go it alone.
And it is this philosophy that has helped thousands of our members (which today not only include musicians/bands, but also booking agents, music venues, independent promoters, record labels, and band managers) truly make touring a reality, and elevate their music careers to the next level.
