Where does an “Epic Tour” begin?
It is just like climbing a mountain, it starts with the first step.
Renate and Steve Iorio have been touring the world and played in 14 different countries on 3 continents, over the past 20 years.
We have done it all independently, and now, we know the ropes.
We have done the booking, the publicity, the logistics, marketing, printing, merchandising and built the websites all from scratch. Whether playing with The Vagrants, Black leather Blues, or acoustic duet, they have had to deal with a multitude of problems. Some problems we created for ourselves because we were learning, some problems were given to us by others. We can’t stop that from happening, but we do try to not deal with people that start problems, and we try to move the buckets of shit, so that nobody steps in them.
Steve has taught contract law, copyright law, publishing law, at university, and we try to keep things simple, but when simple is not enough, we are happy to make contracts that cover as many details as possible.
We love all types of music, and we love live shows. We have worked with all types of acts, Rock, Hip Hop, Rap, Electronic, Funk, Blues, DJ’s, World Music, and even some Pop Music.
Renate has been building websites and doing artwork for many types of artists and many types of companies and can develop a comprehensive site, or just help to improve your rankings and sites. Between the two of us we have developed an import and distribution company, run a radio station, booked venues, tours, major events, international showcases, signed with small record companies to Warner Chappell, and played at some great festivals and shows.
