This most certainly isn't news but it seems Rock n Roll around these parts has all but up and died. Just a stern reminder last night with the turnout my band had in a room we typically do amazingly well in. This is the first time I've seen less than 40 people at one of our gigs. I got into a discussion with the lead singer of a very *cough, cough* popular band around these parts that gig 6-8 times a month who said it's happening to every band around here..at least if you happen to play any semblance of rock or metal. In his opinion it's up to the bands now to maximize turn out at these clubs and I have to agree with him. It's not the 80's and 90's any more where the clubs had very good built in crowds that wanted to go see a live band. Of course we promote the hell out of our gigs on social media and to our friends and co-workers but it seems like people just don't go out any more. I know part of it is demographic too. I personally do not go out every weekend to see bands nor most of my friends. My typical Saturday night does not involve going to see a local band. I guess I am soliciting some ideas on what not only my band can do but I myself can do to help kickstart this area? Hoping someone here has some suggestions because I am not coming up with any other than old fashioned word spreading..
