Makes My Blood Dance has been spreading their unique high-octane hard rock sound since late 2017 to an ever growing fanbase. Unique marketing techniques and an unforgettable live show have taken them to underground legend status.
The Disco Metal 2023 tour will kick off on April 11 in Amityville, New York, and will make stops in cities across the United States, including Baltimore, St. Louis, and Cleveland,before returning home for a homecoming show in Brooklyn, NY on April 29th.
We caught up with Makes My Blood Dance frontman Evan Russell Saffer for a little insight on how they made this tour happen.
“MMBD is the promoter, the record label (Alpha Centauri Records) and the headliner. They’ve built a network across the nation through relentless touring and get the attention of top talent in local markets by offering a lot in return. In addition to digital tools to pack out their shows like QR ticketing, graphics and social media optimization, the band is able to offer some gorilla marketing to up and coming acts that is very unique. “We print about 1500 mixtape download cards and hand them out for free to anyone at our shows. Any artists supporting this tour get on that mixtape and our Alpha Centauri Records playlist on Spotify. This gets a lot of new music out there and directly into the hands of people who love to come to shows, and it’s a nice perk when you show up to the venue. In a super crowded online world that really only honors big dollar marketing, that kind of face to face promo is really valuable, especially to touring acts that want to fill clubs. We do a lot of other things as well, including getting on one on one calls with hundreds of acts to help them find the right contacts to move their careers forward, give them advice and direction on booking more shows, merchandise, studio time and pretty much all the things that bands are interested in but don’t really know which direction to go in. We don’t know everything, but after hundreds of shows we know a few things and a few good people.”
This DIY work ethic has made Makes My Blood Dance a truly successful independent band. Their ability to make amazing connections with not only their fans but the people that make the music scene around the country work has set them apart. Trust me this is a band you want to see live.
