The internship started mid- January and lasted until the end of May. We worked as an independent team for the Bluegrass Band. The primary objective of this internship was to provide the band with three dates for them to perform in California, especially in Los Angeles and San Diego. Indeed the Philadelphia Philharmonic Orchestra has set up some performances in these places and as some of the members of the Bluegrass Band are members of the Philadelphia Philharmonic Orchestra, it was an opportunity for them to perform in the same places. This work led us to approach bars, casinos, and other places where you can perform a concert, and to communicate for the band about their performance and what they can offer. This marketing plan explains our work and describes the results we got and in another part we have worked on the band and tried to develop their position with their strengths and weaknesses.
[...] Then we did not want to disappoint the band. It was a great opportunity for us since it gave us an insight of what happens is this business and how to handle the responsabilities that we may have there. It helped us to develop new professional skills especially since it was a new kind of work for all of us. Regarding the band we did not manage to find a place for them to perform but through this marketing plan we explain what we did and why we did that. [...]

[...] Some of them are part of the Philadelphia Philharmonic Orchestra which is world wild known, and the others have their own successful careers. The music band isn't very spread throughout the music world which gives them the faculty of being the precursor of this kind of music. The band try the reinvent a style of music such as the violin and other instruments to give another vision of those instruments to the people and brake this image of classy music but to go to the crossword of various types of music such as blues, classic, country to create their own style.

[...] Then we were supposed to also discuss and set up ticket prices, to be in charge of the communication of the event which include: press release, creation of the flyers, creation of the design of the tickets, and so on. So on we started immediately the research for the places in San Diego and its area. To begin with we looked for the concert places in Downtown such as the Crosses, the House of Blues, the Hard Rock Café, the B Street Theater, the Cashba, the Dizzy's, le Claire de Lune. We've been sending mails, making phone calls, trying to get interviews and sending hard copy mails too but none of the above methods where successful. [...]
[...] And we have to say that it was very impressive. It was amazing and it give us the opportunity to realise that we deal with professionals. But we deal with a some problems setting up this tour. The main was that we didn't had real representative, Don, the team leader was still in Philadelphia, and the members here didn t have all the information or were sometimes telling us something different, so we get slowed down but the fact that the communication is always interrupted one way or another.
