    We Don't Play There Anymore

    If you can pull this off live , your in a pretty accomplished band. Blue

    Play along backing tracks

    I think it shows your good enough to play along to high level pro backing tracks. Actually playing with pros might be a different story. Blue

    Understood, If there's one thing that really angers me it's when someone "stiffs" a band. Blue

    We're you paid anything for the gig? Blue

    We've all experienced this, pubs with noise meters. What do owners think when they hire a rock, pop or blues band. If they have issues with volume, hire an acoustic jazz trio. Blue

    How about Legion Hall gigs? The pay is good and the staffs are always nice. But all those 4 prong walkers and oxygen tanks make the atmosphere a little weird. Blue

    How was your gig last night?

    It was ok. The band was sounding pretty good. We played a biker Road House, but is was some sort of an event. They raffled off a Harley. There were a lot of people and they had bars set up outside. Some people were into us and some not. It is what it is., a 4 hour bar gig, 3-7. Blue

    Ok, not what I was thinking at all. Although as " hard up" as I am, even a beating from an attractive lady might not be all that bad. And I have no idea where the invisible bear is. Blue

    Neither do we. We still play some bad places, we just don't play the really bad places anymore. Blue

    Yeah, the no audience thing is a big one. First of all, it's no fun. We're so lucky, we don't have on stage talent collecting are fee. We have a young lady that does marketing stuff, sells merch, and manages our web site. She also collects and distributes the money. She is very business like and a little intimidating. She doesn't mess around. Blue

    Ok, you got me on this one. Can anyone tranlate this into Yankee talk? Leathering? Is it something I might enjoy? Blue

    I'll start. First of all there are not many places we've pulled out of and decided not to play. I can only think of 2 over the last 7 years.. 1. Jimmy's, we stopped playing Jimmy's because of the distance. Too far to drive ( an hour one way ) for what what we charge. 2. The Goose & Hog, we stopped playing there for several reasons. A. The hours, 9:30 - 1:30. B. We raised our rate and the owner could no longer afford us. C. To be honest the place was in a bad area. The neighborhood and clientele scared the hell out of me. Definitely not the kind of neighborhood you'd want your vehicle to break down in. Blue
