Rick Siler is the force behind the Rickerrocker.com team, covering local music events and venues. Rick is sponsoring the main stage at the Music Matters Festival in Darlington, IN on August 5-6 (details here). The fest features 11 bands over the two nights, some of whom have been on this podcast, and some we don't know. It's the brainchild of guitarist/songwriter/band leader Jason Wells, who is also the dad of Gibson Wells, a spectacular teen guitarist, and his not-to-miss band The Edgars. We also touched on some tips for putting your band's name out there, from social media to the proper press kit contents. Rick had a great notion about what keeps bands from pushing themselves, a notion I never had considered. We concluded with one of the festival bands, the Down Low Kickers, who will give you a perma-smile.
