Subject: RE: Musicians Quiting and Venues Dieing
Jen - I have run Folk Clubs , been a Semi Pro Folk singer on the Club circuit AND been an Equity Card Entertainer , Worked Pubs all over , as well as Serious Corporate stuff .
Round MY area , very few pubs have a seperate room for a Club , and the ones that DO have a room want as much as a lot of clubs can afford to pay a guest to rent the room to someone who will bring as many as forty or fifty customers a week into their establishment .
I have a Great Sympathy for Publicans who get squeezed by some of the Companies that now own so many pubs and have NO concern for them except as Income generators . We are NOT all anti Landlord , per se , Honest .
