The following is a gig report from my latest show. I’ll add a post like this from time to time so that you can see what kind of progress I have made as a musician in a regularly gigging band.
My act was called upon to play a quality outdoor show in Philadelphia at a bar that looks out onto the Delaware River.
We got a 10pm time slot which is ideal for maximum crowdage when bars close around 2 pm.
You know you’re doing it right when half the crowd gives you the finger! Some people even watched from on top of the wall.
Testing my new wireless guitar setup, we decided to harmonize some licks from the front row.
- 67 person draw, crushing the pull of the other 3 bands combined. Tied the record for any band for the 3 summers this venue has been in operation (according to the promoter)
- $427 payout
- ~ 12 t-shirts sold, $10 a pop
- New show offer
What’s that? You don’t have time to learn an instrument?
Make time. Be dedicated. Reap the rewards.
If you want to play in a professional, hard-working rock & roll band, my eBook can help you get there. Anyone can do it with HARD WORK and DISCIPLINE. Rock on my friends.
