Subject: RE: Getting nursing home gigs
Hi Genie. You said, "Some ADs have the habit of hiring a person very frequently when they are "new" and then dumping them for someone else when, predictably, the residents start asking for something different for a change."

If you feel that an AD is booking you too much in a short period, do you suggest spreading the gigs out more?

Also, you said, "Some will ask for an audition. In those cases, I've learned to give them a tape instead."

Do you find people generally willing to accept the substitution?
