In this Tour Tips segment, the alternative pop rock band, Cold Fame, recommends advice for being a musician on the road. You can check out the tips below:

We’ve had an amazing year! We have just released our latest single "Dead", opened for Juno award winners Monowhales, completed a BC tour this past summer, performed on some killer music festivals alongside some world famous artists and learned a lot in the process. One of our biggest tour tips is to always pack snacks and water. A well fed band is a happy band. Touring is a blast, but you can get run down and tired pretty quickly. You want to avoid anyone getting "hangry" or feeling run down, so pack healthy snacks and electrolytes. This is a good tip especially if you have any food allergies/sensitivities, as it can sometimes be tough to find gluten free and/or dairy free options. Another tip we would love to share is to have your load in, sound checks and performances times lodging and all other necessary details somewhere accessible in your vehicle with you. Include contact phone numbers, addresses, even plan out where you can grab some food and load up on gas ahead of time if you want to be extra organized. You never know what's going to happen on the road, or if you'll be in the middle of nowhere with no service. Having a couple plans and options to help keep the cart on the rails can come in handy. Lastly, remember to have fun! Bring a couple disposable cameras and capture the good moments, you will love to look back on these later. Best of luck out there friends!
