Hey folks in response to Larry's last post about the DJS having big 
bucks to advertise and musicians or bands don't !!

That is simply not the case, the DJ has no more money and in most cases 
less than a band does, Musicians and bands are simply too cheap to 
spend money to make money.

A funny thing Happens when you don't advertise & Promote !


There is simply no excuse for it, especially in todays market with the 
internet where you can get Free Advertising all over the planet.

Twenty four hours a day seven days a week.   Pull your heads out of the 
Sand and do some work !!

The Sky is Falling the Sky Is Falling!!   Most musicians believed that 
fifty years ago and ran into the Barn and never came back out. :))

Now for all you guys on here that work day gigs, Just how long do you 
think your companies would stay in business if they did not advertise 
and promote their business to bring in enough money to pay your 
salaries and benefits?

The same thing applies to running a band folks, it is a business, treat 
it like one and it will treat you like one in return.
If you can't or won't do that just give up that dream of quitting your 
day gig, if any of you in this position still have that dream.
