What does a bandleader do?

Recommended Posts

Say, a touring act. Sometimes, they will introduce (usually the person on keys), "And this (name) on keys, our bandleader."


What does a bandleader do for a touring act? I assume he arranges the songs and charts them but once that's done, anything ongoing?

NE-One hit it on the nosey!


The bandleader also hires the other musicians. The artist generally wants little or nothing to do with hiring their band. If they have a problem with someone's playing, the bandleader usually fires the musician.


Having a bandleader means the artist has little responsibility beyond singing, playing, and dealing with all the promotional aspects of touring that require their attention.
