Your NYE gig - time to gigspam!

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by Peter Squire, Dec 9, 2005.


  1. Hey guys

    Are you booked for new years? lets tell everyone where we are on December 31

    Other info might be helpful too - what kind of music, what kind of crowd, how much money etc etc

    My band is playing at our favourite pub, our usual mix of unusual covers and originals, a very upmarket crowd with downmarket habits, and we are getting $AUD1800. for a three piece - good gig!

    Tell your stories please!

    I do not wish to discuss it, either, at this time.

    Just got confirmed at the same place we played last NYE. It's a Cajun restaurant out in the boonies in southern Washington state. We got 85 people in a nasty blizzard last year; the room could maybe handle 200 if things go well. I'm not sure if we'll be a trio, quartet, or quintet yet. We do mostly jazz standards from the 30s-60s with female vocals. The diva plays flute and percussion, plus we have keys and I play EUB. We might also use drums and/or sax for this gig. We'll probably get a percentage-plus-guarantee deal, plus food and drink for us and a few guests. The food is awesome, and we always do well at this joint.

    I probably could've booked something more lucrative, but I'm happy with this.:cool:
