I was recently asked this question by a bar owner when pitching my band. There seems to be two schools of thought on this. Musicians seem to think it is up to the club/bar owner to properly promote an act while club owners seems to think they are paying a band to bring people into their club. I know from my own experience in past bands, if we fail to bring people into a club, that's probably going to be the last time we are asked to play that establishment. In my last band, this was not a problem as the BL was also a bar tender and new many of the club owners. He also had a large family and many friends in the area. Unfortunately this is not the case with this band, so I think we might be in a tough spot when it comes to booking gigs despite the fact that the band sounds really good. Has anyone else run into this and how did you overcome it?
