Hi I'm looking for a little advise on booking, b abuse I'm new to this. I have a band that is new in the town I am in. This is a very clickish place and I may be getting our first gig. I just received a email asking our price. This is the question. Should I just give them a asking price or give them the option to negotiate? I'd really like to hear what some of you that have this experience has to say. I'm not new to the music world but I am new to running a band. We have been rehearsing for a few months and I really need to get us a gig before I start to lose people. I just turned down four dates because they didn't like our singer and I felt she put in as much work as the rest of us so for me it was all or nothing. Any help would be great.
