When I got to get gigs some place I've never played I often get the question "how's your draw, can you bring in 50 people?" I don't intend this thread to be yet another rehash of the conversation about who's responsibility it is to get customers in the door. It's more about this magic number of 50. Is it just me or have others gotten this question? Is there something special about 50? Can your band bring in 50 people to a gig on the strength of your draw alone? I don't think I could, unless it was a really special event. Every single gig? No. I don't think there are many local bands that get 50 people in the door for every gig. I was in a band that filled a 200-person club on a regular basis but that was pretty unusual. Thoughts?
