I booked almost every band I have been in since I have a business and sales background and am an all around good BS'er. I also owned or was owner in three retail businesses in the past and know in some ways what it takes to keep one going. Of the bar/club owners most all complain about bands as much as bands complain about them. Most of them see bands as a pain in the butt, difficult, moody and just not worth the efforts to have them for the most part. Some of these places keep trying but others quit booking bands due to their demands and attitudes and some even closed. Part of it was the owners lack of understanding the local market .. that led to the closings. These owners wanted live music but bands just make to many demands on them and most time there was little in return. Some of these places only have bands payed by tips or a small flat rate regardless of the band and how many people they bring...maybe not fair but this way they don't loose. The best clubs I ever played at were small places that the owner personally wanted the music and was willing to pay for it basically out of pocket for it. These owners liked bands/music at their clubs but it really did not add allot to the business.... they like the look and mood it creates more. Allot of owners I worked with owners sing this tune. A band they booked brought 30 people the first time they played here but after that they brought little to nobody to the next 2 gigs. These same bands wanted more food, drink and sometimes more money thinking that since they were rebooked they were local favorites but their following was fluff. As much as I hate clubs who say you need a draw or bring a crowd to play here I will admit I understand it..don't like it. Think of the owners side. If you take a flat rate accept it, door you better draw. Most bands do not have the power to make demands today. I can't recall the last time I saw a local place that the band demanded to be payed well since they were the reason the place was packed. In the OP case forget it. The fall out might kill you ever booking that club again. It might also kill your band and maybe even your local scene.
