Thread Name: Musicians Quiting and Venues Dying
Subject: RE: Musicians Quiting and Venues Dying
Perhaps you should not just hire musicians, just to have musicians playing in your pub...but rather, go out of your way to find a caliber of musicians, that would be a draw!! Not only that, establish a reputation, of having ass kicking great musicians playing in your pub, and pay them a percentage of the gate....and if they are good enough, even better known, charge a cover. Good musicians have their following, that should help fill the house. Perhaps not being so 'cheap' is in your taste, rather than in your pay scale...Good luck!
