Confidential only: where can a band get $500 per gig in WNY (WNY)
I know Im asking a lot, but my band is a great band - but we need to make more money. We get $400 on most gigs but we are a five piece band. We are probably wasting our time with trying to get $500 out of the clubs we play now, and would like to know CONFIDENTIALLY - what clubs we can expect to get $500 out of. I dont expect anyone to put this directly on Craigslist, but if you could anonymously email me a few clubs I would be grateful. I know Im asking a lot, and I dont expect alot of replies. but even a few would be appreciated. Thanks
do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers.

It's probably one of the guys from my band! LOL

How do you spell "a lot" correctly and incorrectly in the same sentence?

We made $500 at a gig over the summer, but I'm not telling anyone where. Gigs would then be at stake again.

I made $100 playing solo at a private party this summer....usually with the band we lose money by the time you figure in gas to practices and gigs. With six people in our band...money is never really an issue....it's always an after thought for us.

How many strange dongs ended up in your mouth for that kind of scratch?

Ass....it was classy, although they had (well 99%) no idea I was just playing Cure and Elvis Costello songs.

If you're a great band and have a draw, you wouldn't need to be looking for clubs that pay X amount. They would be calling you and you could name your price. Maybe you need to re evaluate your band and what you're doing.
