I have to agree with Tom. My many years of experience with ASCAP was
constant aggravation. Their persistent and thuggish attitude never let up.
I would hope that this is not the case with your club owner but I certainly
wouldn't bet the farm on it.

Coincidentally, this morning I got a call from the owner of the place where
we play on Mondays saying he'd just received a letter from ASCAP asking for
their fee for our playing there. I told him to tell them that we're doing
all public domain stuff -- music written well before 1923 and there should
be no fee involved. He seemed fine with that.

for this very unexpected situation. Thank you all very much. Should I expect
any other response/inquiry/inquisition from ASCAP or will this now go away?
