Thread Name: When should you be paid for performing?
Subject: RE: When should you be paid for performing?
M.Ted, Thanks for the comments, but I have had good luck with the free gigs as mentioned. I guess if money comes into the picture, I take it but it is not the motivation behind my performing. I am like any one else that performs, you have to feed the ego for what ever the price.
A major rule I do live by is if a venue has no sound system and request using mine, I make it clear and up front that the use of it will cost $100. That usually covers any questions about borrowing the system.
Mary Jean, CD's are great but are also expensive to produce. I find very few that offer any sounds near as good as LIVE performance. But I agree with you, it is a disapointment when there is none available.
