We can manage all of your day-to-day social media ops. We’ll work directly with your team to keep you and your band active and engaged with fans. We’ll also create a marketing plan deliverable that incorporates all marketing channels – social, email and advertising.
Do you or your band need a website? Your Facebook page should not be your main online home. Whatever your budget we have you covered. We’ll also provide search-engine optimization.

I have just launched a state of art , live concert / production facility in Santa Rosa, California . The venue, House of Rock ,was opened in October of 2016. After many openings as a consultant and owner in other parts of the US and abroad, I'd wished that Michael Brandvold would have been involved with me in my previous endeavors. His attention to the fine points of the operation was and is incomparable . Michael's expertise in Social Media, Secular Marketing, Web Design, All Tech requirements and issues pertaining to ticketing, venue promotions, facilitating all House of Rock performing artists interviews with area radio and print, while corresponding with the artists publicity department, utilizing all free advertising sources and etc. When involved in a turn key of a major venue, things sometimes slip through the cracks. Working with Michael, all the cracks were sealed. It was a productive and fruitful experience working with him.Rock Star University House of Rock
