Marketing & Promotion

Ted Wigler   - [email protected] 

Winstons requires artists to put a significant promotional effort towardtheir performance. While we promote all shows via our internal and external street team with posters and flyers, our website, social media, calendar listings, and other available avenues of promotion, experience has proven that when bands assist in their own promotion, the shows are more successful. If you are in need of media plans or press lists, please contact the marketing contact directly.

  • Handbills / posters- Send show-specific materials to the venue w/ the show date and artist’s name on front of envelope: to: Winstons 1921 Bacon St, San Diego, CA 92107
  • Provide electronic copy of poster
