Some time back my step-brother called me and asked if we wanted to open for them in a couple of weeks from today. He needed to know in a hurry, so I called my band members and we hastily agreed. We opened for them last month at another place and it worked out OK, but they got the door and we did not get anything. Note that we are just started out and that we have done most of the gigs we have played so far for free(just for the experience, practice, etc.). We have a following of about 35-50 people that will come watch us almost everytime we play, while my stepbrothers band does not enjoy such a regular following. When we opened for them the 1st time, the bar was packed. Alot (I dare not say all, but most), of the people there can to see us play. When my brothers band started to play, many people left. No doubt, it was getting "late" (they started about 10:30 pm), and it was a restaurant, but our band and some girls with us were the only ones left cheering them on. My self-proclaimed "band leader" has now decided that we should ask for some % of the door. We passed on a few flyers at a local festival this week, and have alot of people planning to show up. We estimate about 50-70 people. I feel funny about doing this because 1) we agreed to play the gig without worrying about $$$, 2) they actually got the gig, and 3) they were good enough to ask us to play. On the other hand, my brother's band knows that we can get a few folks into a bar, and I feel like they could be using that to their advantage. Should I feel funny about talking to my brother about getting a portion of the door?
