Thread Name: When should you be paid for performing?
Subject: RE: When should you be paid for performing?
I think everybody has different expectations--Please don't take any of my comments as criticism--I think that it is really important for people to be out, playing music with people, and, especially, playing music for people--whatever goals you set for yourself--

As an aside, perhaps relating to the idea of envy that was mentioned in the earlier posts, I am no longer able to perform, for health and personal reasons--But I do get that little twinge when others talk about gigging--Mudjack, you are so right, that ego needs to be fed!! Oh, I do long for the days when I used to throw the instruments and the PA in the back of an old beat up car, and drove off to a small hall or club room where an audience was eagerly waiting--between me and you, if I could do it again tomorrow, I wouldn't be thinking about the money--
