You could be involved, all of these tasks need to be done, Imagine doing them all as well as being the performer who has to be prepared to dazzel on a moments notice! Does it pay? Not in money, it usually costs the artist to play an event not counting their time and effort. For instance, a concert quality instrument is in the price of a new car range. Recordings, recording equipment, materials, art work, promotion, event promotion, Web site creation, it's a surprisingly expensive and time consuming endeavor.
