Phil, I've written alot about your question. Probably more on my own forum than here - but I'll try to give it up again:
There is no little black book - and there is no secret handshake. The people you are playing with THIS YEAR are the ones that will eventually lead you to getting a better gig. So impress your bandmates by making them inspired to be playing with you - and then, they will champion you when a gig opens up.

it is ALL personal. A press kit will get you a gig touring with a theater company or some other kind of mid-level thing... but you don't get to play with the musical giants because of a press kit.

GOOD LUCK!

and thanks
I see, one gets to play with musical giants by some how getting themselves in front of those giants, am i right?
