Gorilla Music Management

Gorilla Music

Whether you’re looking to get the world’s attention or just make enough money to keep making music, here at Gorilla Music Management we are ready to help you carry out your dreams. Gorilla Music Management can help your band get better shows, help you sell those shows out, and help you to make more money—but that’s just the beginning!

Gorilla Music Management is based out of Cleveland, Ohio, and has been working with bands all across the country of all genres. From metal bands to hip-hop artists, Gorilla Music Management can help you take your project to the next level.

Not sure how to get shows in other cities? Gorilla Music can help book you in cities outside of your own. We put on concerts and events in over 80 major cities and over 100 venues all across the U.S. Unsure of how to improve your live shows? We know the tips and tricks that can turn your band from cardboard cut-outs propped in front of microphones to full-on rock stars in front of a crowd. And let’s not forget about the importance of expanding your fan base.  We can help you reach out to new potential fans as well as strengthen your band’s bond with your fans to convert them into die-hard followers of your music.

But that’s STILL not all! Everyone knows the importance of having recorded music to keep your fans connected with your band when you’re not playing a live show. Gorilla Music can help you improve the quality of your songs, then show you how to record on a budget and release your own records. We can also help you set up your own merchandising company to help fund your band as well as turn all of your fans into walking, talking billboards for your music.

Gorilla Music Management’s Artist Management program is a one-of-a-kind experience for bands and groups of any genre. With over 50 years of collective experience in the music industry, Gorilla Music’s Management team has the knowledge and skills to teach your band how to make success for yourselves in this business. Bands signed up as part of the management program also have access to Gorilla Music’s graphic design team, who can help you design new logos, merchandise, album art, and more.

But what if one of your band members is acting manager of the band? That’s great! We will work in conjunction with your present manager or management staff to bring further quality and value to your band—after all, the bigger your team, the better! For more information on the Gorilla Music Management program and the exciting things it can offer your band, please visit our sign up page for a free consultation with us today!

When you work with Gorilla Music, we help you create and establish a plan for success.  We help you set up realistic goals as well as critique your music and its marketability. When you’re ready, we can help you set up your tour and show you how to get press and airplay along the way. As we help you build your team and name recognition in the marketplace, your band’s brand will grow right before your eyes.
