Now that's more like it. Of course, that's the difference between the east coast and the Ozarks of SW Missouri.
East coast = 2 hrs at $300/person
Ozarks = 4 hrs at $250/band
Needless to say, we won't be playing First Night this year. Geography is important to the money-making end of the business, that's for sure.
Keep up the good work.
