But doesn't that put bands from out of town in an impossible situation, unless they're pretty famous? They won't know many people so they don't get paid as much as a local band... hmm. I think it's dodgy ground for many reasons.alongwaltz wrote:I've had friends who survey everyone who pays at the door as to which band they came for and divvy up the payments accordingly. So if Band X wants all their friends and family to come in for free that would be reflected in how little they make at the end of the night compared to Band Y.
I'm about to start putting gigs on again and all this is only slightly making me not want to. :)
