my band has recently started to get a series of gigs at the same place. the drummers dad knows teh owner (jay) of the sidewinders baseball team a side team of the arizona diamondbacks, we have played about 4 gigs there already and have not gotten paid, but they do give us free tickets to a private box and free food at the consessions. but we really need money for the band instead of free food or airconditiond box seats, tehy also announce os over the inercome of the stadium and also are going to make a sign in the left feild. we have already made 600 bucks of just tips and selling some of our cds, but we still want to get paid by the baseballpark! how do you think we should approce the owner to see if we could get paid, or do you think it would be best to wait, we basically are the house band they really like us, especially scince we dont play metal or punk or something we play blues/rock which is great music for baeball i think. how do you think wee could get paid? wait, or ask?
