    I 'volunteer' my time in music promotions

    but after tomorrow, I'll be working in music management... band management to be precise. ;)

    I work for a Fortune 500 company too, but it's as exciting as watching grass grow. :erk: My dream is to work in the music industry full-time someday.

    I don't work in the music business, but I hope to some day. I do a lot of volunteer type stuff, though. I help run a local music venue, set up bands/host the weekly live bands that we play on my college radio station, and I'm an in-training DJ at the same station.

    Software Engineer by day, crazed prog metal guitarist by night! Back in the late 80s, I worked in a few different record stores and a music distributor.

    Damn! Beat me to it! :lol: :)

    I've tech'ed, played, and currently do stringed instrument repairs/mods as a second source of income, as well as just another "hobby".

    cool cool. I guess I should give you my background since I'm the one who brought it up....

    I do music publishing for a recording artist, as well as sample clearance for a lot of hip-hop albums and artist development. Guitar is my main thing too... gig around and do some session work.

    any of you guys in atlanta?

    I used to play classical music (piano) and perform in a youth orchestra (violin). That's the limit of it. :D
