The Is Rock Dead thread got me wondering about rock cover bands that draw mostly baby boomers to gigs: Is anyone having any luck with early dinner-then-dancing show times aimed at getting an older audience out? Around here (central VA), 10-1 is the default window for bar gigs. But we're also unusual in that there are no bars, as such. Alcohol laws mean that all bars are technically restaurants that must do a certain % of the till in food receipts. As a result, except for wallpaper gigs, early start times are rare. Are any rock-oriented bands elsewhere making the 7:00-11 gigs (or similar) part of their business model?
