Music For The Dogs

Bootstrap Productions Web Video - Tour Promotion

Discover new live music and help local animal rescue too at

(PRWEB) April 2, 2009 -- BOOTSTRAP PRODUCTIONS launches a Tahoe region "live performance" video production studio and publishing service with the new web channel a video based promotion service for touring bands.

Bootstrap's video services are aimed at multiple shoots in multiple venues of the same band. "Since the bands tour to this region regularly we can build a video library, from that we create promotional material for the bands. We constantly improve on our collection - the site will be fresh." says CJ, the producer and publisher behind the IndiesForPaws website.

We see our promotional videos as a resource to the "promotion and band management" side of the "Music Business". By collaborating we all have a singular goal of the bands financial and musical success. Working with bands to build a video collection of live performances will be valuable for many reasons - including the possibility to get income from advertisers on the web site and DVD sales as well. It will also help drive show attendance. It's win - win - win when you look at it. There is no down side.

That's one of the things that makes us different- we collaborate with bands to create videos and make money for both sides and then the animal rescue donations - that's icing on the cake. Check out the Rocket Dog Rescue video on the Indiesforpaws site. What a story- what a commitment. Lots of pets need rescue help - or they die. You can foster a pet…, adopt a pet or two... There is a "Foreclosure dog" problem out there. Help!

The studio is working on several combination DVDs including two titled The Tahoe Sessions and The Sierra Sessions. The first should be out within a few months. The DVDs will feature shows from a combination of artists and will be sponsored in part by merchants. "this is part of our business, we help merchants reach clients through live music of all sorts of genre's. From geezer rock to reggae, bluegrass to new grass…, I particularly like the geezer rock stuff myself. "

The site was launched on February 14th with over a hundred hours of video in the bank and dozens of bands already in the queue we expect this site to change and grow rapidly for months to come.

We have been fortunate to partner on many projects with the most prolific concert promoter in the Tahoe area, Renegade Productions. For nearly 20 years Renegade has been bringing great shows to Tahoe venues including River Ranch Lodge, MontBleu Casino, The Tahoe Biltmore Casino and the Truckee River Park. Renegade has helped the local talent and the touring acts build a strong base of music fans in the Tahoe area. From the Classic Rock Led Zeppelin cover band Zepparella to the Austin Texas kick ass rock sensation Del Castillo. The local area is a hot-bed of great performers too; they are often given the chance to open for national touring acts. Renegade has been a great combination for us - bringing more value to the bands for the shows they perform, that's our mutual goal. Video helps provide that by keeping the live, alive.

Bands looking to collaborate with Bootstrap Productions to create promotional and commercial video should contact CJ by email cjmccoypromo(at) and calling 530-573-0805.
