Iron Man offers Tour Management Services to bands and artists.

Tour Management – A professional solution for touring artists, providing a reliable service at a reasonable price. I can help organise the administration for a schedule of appearances, contacting each promoter or venue to ensure the clients technical and hospitality demands are met. I ensure the work remains within the budget. I will take care of the day to day planning and management of activities on the road, and any unforeseen issues or emergencies should they occur. Some recent clients have included: Seasick Steve, John Paul Jones, Madness, The Stone Roses, Killing Joke, Adam Ant, Roland Gift, Fatoumata Diawara, Talib Kweli, Little Barrie, House of Pain, Vagina Monologues, Ivo Papasov, Sierra Meastra.

Transfers – A simple and cost effective transfer service to or from the airport, the office, an exhibition, or an event.

Backline and Gear Moves – A reliable service to pick up or drop off backline, gear or trailers depending on your need. I use a suitable panel van, splitter van, or a Land Rover Defender, which will pull a Trailer (with a ramped load-on/off) capable of moving up to 2 tonnes of gear.

Tour Management Services

Most of my work is based around Tour Management in the Music Industry but I have also worked with the Theatre and Film Industry.

I have played in all sorts of bands myself over the years, I’ve organised 1000’s of gigs as i used to put on regular shows in Birmingham, I’ve set up tours, managed bands, put together press kits, pr and promotion strategies, worked out online strategies for artists big and small, I run a record label, and I’ve dealt with all sorts of madness along the way. I have an understanding of most problems, pressures and issues that performers and their crew may face. I’ve taken a lot of people to a lot of gigs from living rooms, small venues, squats, warehouses, TV and Radio Stations to major music venues and festivals of all shapes and sizes.

I have a clean driving licence with a C1 and D1 which means I can tow trailers and drive any car, van or splitter.

Vehicles

I’m a freelance. I work for you, not the hire company. This means that if you employ me I can find you a good vehicle or trailer or anything else you might need so that’s less work you have to do. I can source Splitters, Gear vans, Cars, Minibuses…anything you might need.

Online Strategy

I have an active interest in internet and social media. If you’re interested in how I could help with your, or your artist’s on-line presence get in touch.

Rates

I charge per day. A day is 8 hours, after the first 8 hours I charge per hour. The hours run from when I collect the vehicle for the work until I return it.

Alternatively, I also charge a ‘set day rate’. This is negotiable, in advance of the work, depending on what you want me to do. Longer term clients tend to be on a set day rate, It works out cheaper and no one has to watch the clock.

I expect PDs and buyout/catering on any work where I’m away overnight, and buyout/catering on any day over 8 hours.

Some recent Artists / Clients

Seasick Steve, John Paul Jones, Madness, The Stone Roses, Mika, Killing Joke, Adam Ant, Roland Gift, Fatoumata Diawara, Anthrax, Modestep, Talib Kweli, Little Barrie, House of Pain, The Enemy, Friendly Fires, Crystal Castles, Bullet for my Valentine, The Orb, Barry Adamson, Vagina Monologues, Taio Cruz, Jay Reatard, Nightingales, Ivo Papasov, Sierra Meastra, Endbutt Lane, The Rakes, The Magistrates, Soulsavers, As I lay Dying, Roisin Murphy, Police Bastard, Dufus, Arrows, Ladytron, Son de la Frontera, Jeffrey Daniel, Johnny 2 Bad, XOVA, Johnny Foreigner and many others…..

Legal Advice for Music, Film, Theatre and Television

December 20, 2009

Iron Man Records offers specialist legal advice to anyone involved in music through Kevan Tidy at Tidylaw. Before working with Iron Man records Kevan was a musician and a songwriter. He encountered the usual problems and attempted scams of the record industry and had to develop an interest and expertise in contracts and copyright.

Kevan soon realised that the only lawyers dealing in this kind of law were mainly in London and very expensive. There was nothing for up and coming musicians.

Kevan decided to qualify as a solicitor and try to help. Kevan has never turned anyone away on the grounds that they cannot afford it. This applies to anyone, not just musicians. Kevan can help aspiring inventors, film makers, writers, musicians etc.
