Subject: RE: Gigs (that pay better than coffee houses)
Schools and Library programs are great .. Also playing at house parties for the weekend crowds can be a great income.( If you have a well heeled neighborhood near by )            An hour at a School or a party for 2 hours is usually around $300.00 without a pa . Sometimes a great supper as well .
          The program must make sense to the venue . I bring Banjo guitar concertina dulcimer and whistles to lower or middle schools . At a party i am considered "local Color".. If its a short evening I dont mind the tag but you have to understand the different audiences you may get . . All the best , guy
