What's up everyone...just wanted to get some feedback from anyone who is/has been in similar situations. I'm 27. I work a full-time, corprate job. I have alot of financial responsabilities (rent, car, bills, etc..) as does everyone else in my band. We have an original metal band that is starting to experience a little bit of local success. We've been playing a lot of shows around our area for about a year now, some small some pretty large. We've recently been booked on a few large out of state shows, 2 of which we had to cancel. Because my guitarist and I couldn't get out of work in time to get there on Fiday nights. It really sucks, because people seem to be into us and we're just starting to see some recognition. It could lead to bigger things. However, as I said before We all have too many responsabilities to go on tour. So we're really limited as far as what we can do outside of writing and playing decent local shows, or out of town shows on Saturdays only. Its a little frustrating...because I feel like we're burning bridges every time we have to cancel a show. It's also a litle discouraging because it can only go so far. If it was up to me, I'd quit my job and go on tour...but unfortunately I can't do that type of thing anymore I don't know, I just needed to rant a little. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
