Wow. I've forgotten about the days of trying to book gigs. I've been in the same band for almost 20 years, and, I honestly don't think we've actively went out and booked a gig since 1999-2000. Once you guys establish yourselves as a kick-ass band with a great show, and a pro attitude, the gigs WILL come to you. When we play a club, and we collect our pay, the owner is immediately asking us, "When's your next open dates on your calender? Fill us in & just let us know when, would ya?" Hell, we don't even "advertise" ourselves anymore. Why? People just know of us. They know they can book us just as easy as it would be to ride to Wendy's to get a hamburger. We are a regular business that operates 50 weekends outta the year. And, it's all by the word of mouth. Plain 'n simple. But, we struggled, and paid our dues to get that kind of rep, for sure. And, now is the pay-off. We operate on auto-pilot.
Our only setback is, we can't clone ourselves so we can double-book and make twice the money!
