I have more sub dates of late, and I have turned down two more frequent ones as not the type of gigs/music I'm interested in. An agent friend of mine asked would I be interested in talking to Band A which she 'manages' as regards gigs. I recently got a call from BL type and I asked were they regular bar dates, yep he said, so money was average and I asked for the set list. I think I know 50% of the set so I dont need to listen to them but I would appreciate the set being defined so I don't have to wade through numbers we will not play...and I don't much fancy having to learn them anyway. So, they play longer than usual, money not great, songs not great, collectively, and Band not great from videos. The only non-down side is a new set of network contacts and a favour to the agent. Overall, not really going to be worth the effort as I'm not interested in playing certain songs in another unit. If the agent wasn't a friend, I could have turned these down after the first chat IF it had been clear this was extended playing time over normal playing time for normal fees. Imv, the gigs pay $100 when they should pay $150.
