This isn't a "whine about my BL" thread; although it is about an approach my BL has. I joined this project a few months ago and have been gigging steady ever since. My BL sent me a schedule of gigs when I joined so I know where we're playing. However, I couldn't find anything online as far as a schedule. His FB will have an Event every week with the gigs for that week, but he doesn't publish a longterm calendar with shows. He's been busy booking for the upcoming year. I asked him last week if he was planning on publishing a schedule online for the upcoming year. He said that he doesn't really like to that, because he doesn't want other bands following our schedule, calling up clubs, and then undercutting us. We do draw well and leave almost every club we play with a smile on their faces. Of course, the argument is, well if you're a good band, you shouldn't have to worry about being undercut. With that said, we all know that some club owners are idiots and don't understand the difference between "inexpensive" and "value." So they'll book a band for $100 less because they think they're saving money, and then wonder why their bar is only half full. On the other hand, I couldn't fathom not having a least a monthly schedule published somewhere online. The people that come out to see the band range in age from early 20s to 60s. While the older people may not be plugged into social networking stuff, the younger ones definitely are. I'm not pushing the idea, because this is a hired gun situation. I'm not as personally invested in the band as I would be in a band that is mine. However, if it were my band, I would always have a least a monthly schedule that it's easily accessible. My last band gigged for almost 10 years. We always had some sort of schedule published somewhere and never had a problem with someone coming in and trying to undercut us. To me, it's like the whole fear of someone "stealing your setlist." It's just tilting at windmills, IMHO. Thoughts?
