we send a lot of promo stuff out. we get lots of responses like this: (actual complete and unedited response) My label and company works on fee and % basis, $500 distribution deal, >$1000 distrib and promo deal, robert jackson let me know firstname.lastname@example.org i think it's about time robert started getting some emails from people who are TRULY interested in what he has to offer. i think he should get asked lots and lots of questions, get called all the time, get tons of emails... anyone feel like having some fun??? ps. ordinarily i wouldn't even bother posting such things, but in all seriousness - these people are preying on young musicians. a student at my school paid a well known club $700 to play on a sunday nite, and took hell for it that he didn't come up with $1000. we've played the same club several times and they never expected a cent from us.
