WAMI’s November 2012 General Meeting: “Business Tips for the Working Musician” was held for the first time at the Horny Goat Hideaway in Milwaukee.


The group of presenters included:

Julie Barnes, CPA, Barnestorm Enterprises LLC

Rachelle Bariola & Tami Miles, Insurance Agents, American Family Insurance

Brian Schuh, Chief Information Office, Snagg LLC

Kevin Machan, MBA, Business Management Consultant, VarkTek LLC


The presenters did a great job of answering a variety of audience questions regarding business structures, taxes, liability, insurance and loss-recovery. The importance of these issues cannot be stressed enough for today’s working musician. With the end of the year and tax season coming up, WAMI once again is helping to provide Wisconsin musicians with free, timely, helpful information and community resources.


Downloadable transcripts of the information presented, a copy of the presentation, and links to the presenter’s contact information for further questions will be available on this page very soon. Please stay tuned.
