Hey all, have quick question. While I'm not in a cover band around my area there is a few bars that pay. We have played these places about 2 times a piece now and wanna set up our own gigs. I'm wondering what's a good start pay to negociate with a bar. I was thinking something like 500 and the door. But I'm wondering what other people get. Also how do you go about talking about pay for gigs with bar owner. It always makes me feel greedy just bringing it up. How do you all approach the question without sounding like your asking for too much.
