Since I started playing out in bands again a few years ago, I noticed almost every band I see are older musicians. I'm 50 years old myself and our audiences are probably the same people who were my age and into music when we were in our 20's. Most people in live music oriented bars are middle aged, not exclusively, but most. Maybe it's always been this way, and you notice the people your own age and find places to play for your type of crowd. The Internet has given us so many ways to take our available leisure time, and live music seems to be one of it's victims. There seems to be so few places for new bands to get out and perform and do their thing. There doesn't seem to be many behind us to come and take our place.
