Thread Name: Getting nursing home gigs
Subject: RE: Getting nursing home gigs
Hmm... I've just gotten a message on my machine from someone I sent a brochure to. She says that she wants to talk more about my experiences and get some referrals from the Toronto area. This is a bit of a problem, since my first gig of this project is in a couple of weeks; my nursing home experiences have been volunteer, instrumental fiddle only, and in Ottawa and Nova Scotia.

What do you think would be the best response? I'm thinking of trying the "satisfaction guaranteed" thing, since I don't want to offer to audition. Or I could just suggest we talk again in a month when I'll have some references (I have seven gigs lined up now).

PS. Despite the sample brochure I posted above, I did not write "references and demo are available" on the first edition of my brochure, since I don't have either yet.
