Thumbtack Spotlight

The Blues Box Bayou Band

What do you love about your job?

I have the amazing privilege to play music professionally and have created my Bluesbox Bayou band brand for Americana, blues and cajun-zydeco music. Currently making the February Mardi Gras rounds of casinos and dance halls, we are enjoying a revival of two-step, country, and line dancing. I take unique and independent approach to the music business, managing clients, contracts, travel, and musicians by using the power of the web to promote our music and special niche in entertainment.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I was inspired to start my own business because I was forced into early retirement from a more than 30-year career in newspaper publishing at the offset of the great recession in 2008. I am glad I had the experience necessary to put together a band, but it’s a whole other challenge making it actually successful. There is nothing more inspirational than being thrust into a serious business out of necessity.
