If our young subs were to bring friends they wouldn't get in the door...the
joints we play at are just that crowded every nite of the week!   :>

I have stayed out of this discussion as I have stated many times that we
have more young listeners than old ones.  Since a lot of that is due to
geography & a unique style of night life, I can't really add much to the
discussion which is mainly centered, so far, on the U.S. situation.

I would, however, add one formula to success:  a band with good musicians
playing energetically & enjoying themselves doing it will draw and maintain
a crowd, never mind their age.
