Shimbo Darktree Duos at folk clubs (43) RE: Duos at folk clubs 17 Oct 14

This is fascinating ... a whole new world. We do not get the same number of performers as you do in the UK, it seems ("we" is Brisbane, Australia), and the clubs here to not follow a standard pattern with each other. Our club runs a floor singers situation, controlled by an MC (some nights have invited guests). Each spot gets 20 minutes, or 15 on a busy night. We get anywhere from six to twelve acts wishing to perform, and combinations (duos, groups, Mormon Tabernacle Choir) are treated as one act. And it works as well as anything ever does - most seem satisfied, but there is always one who isn't. Not me, of course ... I'm easy ... just not cheap!

To clarify - no, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir have not yet performed - it was merely an example.
