Here in Cape May NJ they were pushing a singer/songwriter weekend. Musicians from all over came to play in different venues "for free". I was talking to a waitress/bartender I know and she told me they were having a guy play who came from Canada. So I said. "well, your going to make good money that night, the house is going to make good money that night, and this poor guy isn't even getting gas money" She realized where I was coming from and realized my point of view. But of course they all have the opprotunity to "Be Discovered" HA!
We all have to be crazy !!!
BTW Fran, when I was refurbishing and selling Hammonds the jazz guys had no money and played the worst ones, the churches were our best buyers.
