Your wrong about Jeff, PD, we talk music and guitars every week.
And we talk about how were not into bands with people who
constantly start/talk sh*t. Sound familiar?

Well the Branson stories true, not that I couldn't play it the same
way every nite, more I didn't want to, but I think they fired me for
showing up drunk and whailing on that bass. I've played in many,
many bands before and after my Branson experience.

See I played in bands, PD, I didn't talk about playing in bands, as you do.

You know critizing my skills or my bandmates skills says more about your
skills then they do anything else. Insecure in your abilities?

Solo might be your niche PD. 8)

He is at feed store and texting to me acoustics are great! Buddy is scouting places..our plan might be working..he has lost his fear of fines fees etc. Many businesses in Bolivar,Mo. Would be fools not to allow us to attract business to their doors..stipulation is we need tip jar set out..we supply you with curious potential customers that have been drawn in by our guitar playing prowess..I am being as honest with you as I can.. :lol:

No, I was replying to YOUR comment that videos could be faked. As others have said, bars are booking bands based on online 'auditions. They look at the band's facebook page (how many 'likes', comments,etc. They look at videos posted there - in 1 spot, not searching out youtube or soundcloud or any other place. Here's what Trilogy had in our short 6 month run: https://www.facebook.com/TrilogyBandNewEngland/

I've got one 'songwriters in the round' gig coming up in a couple of weeks, but no solo gigs booked. They are too much work for me (I work a regular job, you know), with promoting, rehearsing, and all the other details necessary. Back to looking for a duo partner or band, but lot of flakes out there (not as many as Missouri, evidently). Running an open mic every other week, so that pulls in more bucks (to me) than I was getting gigging with the trio.

And exactly who are you referring to when you say "you all can play for food"????

Do you actually KNOW anyone who does that? cos I certainly don't know anyone who does.

I do know that I have four gigs this wkend that all pay $100 or more per player.... We get free drinks at all of them and three serve food AND feed us.

So, I'd say if you don't have the skill set to get paid ( playing chops AND booking and marketing chops ) then busk all you want if you can't score a gig where they feed you and pay you.

But if you're gonna go into bars and restaurants asking no more than them allowing you to put out a tip jar, than you're nothing more than a scab taking what SHOULD be a PAYING gig away from working musicians.
