Hello haunt world i have a friend in the music business breaking out and what not. we came up with the idea of a haunted rock tour type thing we would have bands perform at the haunted houses! but also put on a web cast of the top haunted houses in the united states. we would put the haunted houses logos on the bus,flyers,scare cams,contest,live broadcasting, the ideas go on and on! would you consider this for your haunt as something special for your quest and also Advertising? thanks for your time!!!

Might be a different idea, but kind of a tough sell. You would obviously be looking to get paid so the haunts would have to pay to have you perform correct?
Unless you are a name band with a following it would be more cost effective just to use local bands. We get aproached by several bands every season all wanting to perform for free, just for the exposure.

The Insane Clown Posse did a similar style tour a few years ago. They were looking at the exposure and did not even charge the haunts.

Seems like you're in the "dog chasing its tail" situation...

The Band is looking for exposure and needs to cover expenses and be reimbursed...
The Haunts need entertainment with built in draw to justify any expenditures.

Good luck!!

We have had a band "Here come the mummies" play at mostly midwest shows lately. I would love to host them, but we don't have the venue or the budget. They have a hialarious christmas tune on youtube. Search "mummies christmas".

neat idea though
