how did you get your gig?

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by Peter Squire, Mar 6, 2005.


  1. I was talking to the club owner at our house show yesterday, and he was talking about the band that had the residency previous to us.

    they
    1) started late and finished early
    2) played 30 minute sets and took 1 hour breaks
    3) spent most of the time getting drunk with their mates


    we
    1) always start on time and play until the exact end time or longer when we can
    2) give value for money by playing 45 - 60 minute sets
    3) bring punters in but don't spend all our time socialising with them

    Just wondering what you folk do to get the gig over the other bands??

    We kick ass. Severely.
     
  3. When I was gigging....we were just easier to deal with than many other bands.

    Modest, aren't we? Let me elaborate...

    The bar makes lots of money. People come, people stay until close, and people drink heavily. I assume this is because people dig the music....ie..we kick ass. Severely.
