Thread Name: When should you be paid for performing?
Subject: RE: When should you be paid for performing?
If other people are getting paid for the event, I expect to get paid. But I'll play around the clock for free with people who want to play: sessions, jams, benefits I believe in.

And there isn't enough money in the world to pay for some gigs. That was another thread awhile ago.

If people ask us to perform for a fee, I figure we're good enough, and they want to hear the type of music we do. Of course, we're not looking for gigs. If they find us, we'll generally play -- in a heartbeat!

We owe the audience the best we can do.
