Danny Kurily Interview – Finding Your Path to Touring with a Band

Danny Kurily Interview – Finding Your Path to Touring with a Band

Everyone welcome the awesome Danny Kurily to the podcast! Like most guests, Danny is a good friend – but even more importantly, a true badass. I have always admired how Danny has navigated the music industry and his life in general. It was a true pleasure to sit down and learn from him. We toured together with All Time Low a few times about 10 years ago, and the next thing I know he is living in LA as a personal assistant. Fast forward a few years he is running VIP for Demi Lovato. I could barely keep up with him and I wanted to know more. So this week we sat down, and had a good chat about it all. Enjoy!

In this episode of the Don’t Shit On The Bus podcast we will learn:

• About the range of jobs Danny took during his time touring
• Ways to translate your touring skills to other jobs
• How Danny went from touring with top artists to running a successful house management company
• When touring isn’t sparking interest any longer
