I agree, Jon. I must admit, though, we have played tuns of gigs and this has only happened to us twice. One venue paid us but wouldn''t have us back due to "not enough people in his pub" (not our fault!) and the other venue tried it on by paying us less - it didn''t work though as I stood my ground with them! Ha ha.
we must be lucky as always got our fee, but i must agree that the public at times dont appreciate the fact that the venues are putting some talented live bands at no charge to them.
Hi everyone. Just wanted to air my views on this message board and see if it''s not just me who has a gripe with landlords/ladies/venues in our region who either a) don''t pay you the agreed sum of money after you''ve slogged your guts out playing in their venue for two hours, and b) they expect you to bring hords of people in so they can take lots of money in their till? Whatever happened to venues who appreciate good live music and not just think about lineing their pockets with cash? Gggrrrr! There, moan over! but saying that, there are some LOVELY landlords/ladies/venues out there too! XXX
think its time to put this one to bed folks.
lifes to short.
