    Great.
    Learned a few things but the crowd was great. Probably the biggest crowd we've ever had.
    The place made so much money they threw in an extra $200.00 above the cover charge.

    Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

    • Nice. It's the least they could do after all the booze you sold for them.

      Nice PRS, did you swap out those pickups?

        a cover charge?
        Is that a thing when bands play at a bar?

          Not usually but at this place we charged $5.00. It's the best way to get SOME cash. This bar doesn't have bands generally. It's just a local American Legion. We just needed a place to play.
          Last year with the old band we made about $300 after all was said and done. Saturday we made about $600.00.
          And now it's split 4 ways instead of 5. We were shocked when they handed us the cash.

            I love that friggin guitar. If you remember I bought a Gretsch. I sold my old PRS to help get the funds and immediately regretted it. So I brought the Gretsch back to Guitar Center and bought a new PRS SE Custom 24. Combined with my Marshall head and the two cabs I built myself I'm in love with the tone.
            I'm a Marshall guy from here on. No more Fender or Blackstar amps.

              oh ok, at a legion I could see that.
              when I go to a bar, and there's a band there, i'll stay to be respectful, but if they charged me to see someone I didn't come to intentionally watch, that seems kinda silly, i'm sure you'd understand.

              Obviously I'm a huge music fan, but there's something about walking into a bar, where you planned on hanging out with your friends, and a band be blasting you out of the door so loud you can't hear anything. I have no interest in that usually. There have been exceptions.

                    We try not to be loud. We have this chick singer who is friggin great.

                    Here's a song from Saturday. We are about 35% acoustic and 65% electric guitar.

                      can't view at work. You've posted quality stuff in the past though, so im down wit it!

                      it was more of a general peeve I have I guess, nothing against you making money off it or anything like that.

                            Not what we do in this band.
