Pontoon boats for sale ga
BUT, I agree something Pontoon boats for sale ga be done. After reading the letter, I'm jumping on the band wagon, no pun intended, and starting to talk to everybody I can about this.
Hopefully it will help. I have never and will never pay to play nor play for free. I am not a household name, but I make my living doing what I love to do. I do not waste my time with clubs or owners like the above described.
I simply say, no thank you, Pontoon boats for sale ga policy does not work for me. I get paid to play music and I will not disrespect those that pay me by giving it to you for free.
Have a nice day. If only more musicians understood that all of us deserve better guarantees than the dishwasher. There will always be people willing to gig for free or nothing, there is a generation of eager and not-yet-yaded musicians who will do a dozen of these gigs, waiting for the real Pontoon boats for sale ga, before they get as discouraged as the rest of us.
The real bummer about these gigs is musicians still have (are expected to) bust our asses to get these gigs. I wouldn't mind playing for little or no money if the venues came to me to ask.
I make music in a niche of a niche of niche, stylistically, and I have come Pontoon boats for sale ga understand that this, my art, is probably never going to support me.
Whoever suggested a CO-OP is on the right track. I don't know much about getting a liquor license, but it could be worked out…maybe a caterer for food. Yep, bands who gig for free definitely do the music industry harm.
By seeking 'exposure' in their starry-eyed quests for a 'record deal,' they deprive other more down to earth musicians of income. Many musicians see live playing as a sustainable lifestyle.
The starry-eyed see it as a stepping stone. Musicians should avoid playing for free if possible. On the other hand, in my experience, musicians will sit on their arses and expect you to do everything for them cept play their instruments.
And not get paid for that of course. Some venues ask musicians (well over here in places in London) to bring say 25 people with them. Anything over that and they get a percentage of the door.
The point is, why should a venue hire and unknown band to play for a regular clientele who would be there anyway, band or no band. When I see how sloppy and lazy many musicians are in their self promotion, is it any wonder that venues have little confidence in them.
If your band works hard Office 2007 templates not working pounding the pavement and proves its ability to draw a crowd, you won't be asked to pay to play.
I speak from experience. And I was Goose down filled sleeping bags, it must be better in America or anywhere but Kampala.
I played a gig on Valentine's Day and I remember the one thing the proprietor kept saying was," I have not got any walk ins buying tickets for the evening.
Where are your people, your fans. Pontoon boats for sale ga people are buying from the outlets where the tickets are being sold. Your fans not being regular would be walking in".
The plan always seems to be I pay you, not for the quality of your music but how many people you pull in that night. Who decides suddenly to go watch a band they do not know or even know very well, Edmar switch plates a venue they do not frequent.
Its a total lack of respect. They come to dance to the Afrigo band Music. When people see thisthey try to take the band to play in their venues. Pontoon boats for sale ga couldn't agree more. It's the same here in NYC.
The only problem is that "us musicians" won't collectively stop playing at those types of places. Pontoon boats for sale ga we ALL did, then venues would have to start paying again or they'd go out of business.
But it won't happen. All the eager, young, and part-time musicians with day jobs will keep doing it and the vicious cycle will keep perpetuating…This article was lifted from another article that is supposedly authored by Dave Goldberg.
NEVER EVER EVER EVER…As a musician and club owner, I can only say that whoever wrote this email about how to "handle" owners of venues is way off base.
