Thanks Mordy for your reply..but take into consideration you perform in a metro area where you at least have enough population to fill the hall with an audience..as well as Guitar Mike..Boston should be easy

Well I guess it depends on the open mics you go to. Around here there are two kinds - places that welcome originals and are quieter 'listening room' type places - some of these are actually coffee shops, open mics in church halls. Then there are open mics at bars/restaurants. These tend to be noisier and where cover songs - songs people know, not obscure B sides - are the best to get people's attentions.
Now either of these types of places can have a 'varied' audience. There may be mostly young people or retired guys. 'Jams' with people getting together just there to play a few songs together may be welcome - or not.
Now if you are playing songs and no one is listening - any of the 'wrong songs for the wrong audience' situations may apply. Or you suck! :lol:
With any experience under your belt, you should be able to 'read' the audience during your first song and get a good idea what will work and what won't.

We remember you talking about that and questioning the reality of that pay scale, if you remember.

Music is always heard . . . whether one realizes it or not.
Careful what we write boys . . . we'll as certain as death, hear it again.
