What is your job?

  1. That's really smart. We do a lot of that stuff too. It's called "value added service"

    Bar owner has an agenda, and literally everyone he hires is expected to help him succeed. That includes the band. Alcohol isn't the whole picture, but it is a big part of the picture and arguably one of the owner's main products and offerings. It's the nature of the beast, and any bar vendor or employee who thinks otherwise is fooling themselves.

    Ultimately my purpose on stage is to be the best musician and entertainer I can be, but the bar owner is paying the band to sell alcohol, so the thing is this. Am I getting paid? Then my job is to sell alcohol. I don't have to like it, but that's the gig.
